Finnish Disease Survey

The concept of disease lies at the heart of medicine. No earlier study has addressed perceptions of all relevant stakeholders on what, across a wide range of conditions, should be classified as a disease.

The Finnish Disease (FIND) Survey study population consists of a random sample of 3000 laypeople, 1500 doctors, 1500 nurses and all the 200 members of the Parliament of Finland.

FIND Survey will examine views’ of these people to determine the extent to which they consider states of being to be diseases and their attitudes towards using public funds for managing these states.
