David Mendosa posted this information on a glucagon pen survey. I took the survey. It's not difficult or cumbersome.
If we want to affect change in products, it's worth a few minutes of our time. There is a survey for patients and another for caregivers.
I've copied and pasted the information word for word ....
Dick Rylander, the CEO of Enject Inc., tells me that his company has started the development of a new delivery system for glucagon for use in the treatment of severe (emergency) hypoglycemia. They have worked with Dr. William Polonsky in San Diego to create a patient and caregiver set of surveys to gather information about their worries and feelings regarding this medical emergency. They also will use the surveys to gather some information about a potential new product to replace the existing hypo-kits marketed.
How does severe (emergency) hypoglycemia impact people’s lives?
Is there a better way to deliver glucagon in emergencies? They have developed two surveys to help answer some of these questions. The first survey is for adults (age 18 and over) using insulin to treat diabetes and the second is for the caregivers and those who help and support patients using insulin to treat diabetes. The answers are totally anonymous. The responses will be used to better understand how you perceive and feel about this medical emergency.
The survey should take 10 minutes or less to complete. Please complete only the survey that fits your situation/role. The surveys will be open until April 15, 2009. To complete a survey:
