In 2009 IPPOSI commissioned and published public attitudinal research on public attitudes towards clinical research in Ireland. Key findings of this research include:

  • 77% of people in Ireland agree that clinical research with the aim of developing new ways to treat many diseases is a good idea.
  • 65% of Irish people would be willing to share personal medical information for medical research if it is done in a confidential manner.
