Poster Prize for HRB PhD Scholar Sarah-Jo Sinnott in Taipei!

Poster Prize for HRB PhD Scholar Sarah-Jo Sinnott in Taipei!

  • 04 Nov 2014

Congratulations to Sarah Jo Sinnott, HRB PhD Scholar in Health Services Research who won a poster prize “Small copayments for prescription medicines – cents-ible policies?” at the International Conference of Pharmacoepidemiology in Taipei.

The poster presented research on the impact of two prescription charges on the General Medical Services scheme in Ireland on patients’ adherence to medicines. The research found reductions in adherence to medicines, although the reductions in adherence to less-essential medicines were larger than those observed for essential medicines. The major exception to this trend was for anti-depressant medicines where large decreases in adherence were found.

Sarah-Jo Sinnott wins poster prize at EPHC13

  • 20 Nov 2013

Sarah-Jo Sinnott, a 4th year PhD Scholar on the HRB Health Services Research Programme and based in the Department of Epidemiology and Public, received the award for her poster entitled “The effect of reduced or removed copayments for prescription medicines on adherence – a systematic review”.

This poster was presented at the Young Researcher’s Forum and was organised by the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region at the EPH conference.  The research presented in the poster has found that providing free access to medicines, or reducing the cost of medicines can improve adherence, although this improvement is moderate. This research is part of Sarah-Jo’s overall PhD project which focuses on payment for medicines and how this affects the way in which people adhere to their medicines.
