    We are carrying out a research that involves producing medicines using 3D printing. 3D printing is a process of making medicated tablets by depositing ingredients layer by layer using a 3D printer controlled by a computer that will be used to determine the shape of the tablet. For our research, we will be making a tablet to be used by type 2 diabetic patients who also have other long-term illnesses. One of the expected advantages of printing medicines is reduced number of medications needed to be taken daily by the patients. Another is customisation of medicines to meet individual patient need. We would like to invite you to participate in a survey aimed at obtaining your opinions and views.

    What is involved?

    This study will involve you completing a survey which will take approximately 10 minutes. This research only seeks your opinion and views on 3D printed formulations, and you will not be asked to add, remove, or replace any of your current prescribed medication

    Who can participate?

    Participants above 18 years who have type 2 diabetes concurrent with other long-term illness(es) and require the use of multiple medicated tablets per day.

    Healthcare professionals with any level of experience in diabetes management.

    How to participate?

    For participants with type 2 diabetes, please follow the link below to the survey:

    For healthcare professionals, please follow the link below to the survey:

    Who reviewed the project?
    This project was reviewed by SEC faculty research ethics committee at Kingston University.
