The research that he conducts studies the impact of drug recalls, particularly the impact on patients and healthcare providers. Among other methodological approaches, this current study uses a choice-based conjoint (CBC) approach to identify patients’ level of acceptance of a drug therapy based on the balance between positive effects of a drug and the negative effects associated with the recalled drug. The findings of this study can be valuable for the relevant national and European authorities responsible for decision making regarding the recall of drugs.
