- Health-related professions swept the top three in the Gallup survey, with nurses ranking first and medical doctors ranking second – just one percentage point ahead of pharmacists.
- Gallup’s results are consistent with findings of a 2018 survey conducted by Morning Consult and commissioned by NACDS. In the Morning Consult survey, 82 percent of respondents indicated a favorable opinion of their pharmacist and 90 percent said pharmacies are easy to access.
- The Morning Consult survey also found that 83 percent say pharmacists provide credible information for saving money on prescriptions; that three-in-four agree with NACDS-backed public policy solutions for the opioid-abuse epidemic; and that between eight-in-ten and nine-in-ten agree that Medicare patients should be able to obtain various healthcare services from their pharmacists.
