The M3 Community in Europe on five hot topics in healthcare

M3 Pulse

The M3 Pulse is normally a single question survey about healthcare hot topics. 

For this edition however, we asked our panel members in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain and Italy different questions specific to their own countries.

The M3 Community in Germany was asked about the supply of medicine during the pandemic, while panel members in Spain were asked if they thought wearing masks would help to delay a potential second wave of COVID-19.

The question for the community in the United Kingdom was about healthcare inequality, while members in France were asked about current perceptions of the role of caregivers.

Lastly, Italian members shared their opinion on what causes delays in the use of technology in healthcare.
