Cultural Dimensions, Consumption of Opioid Pain Medications, and Designing Educational Information Products

Abstract

This article examines the connection of Hofstede's cultural dimensions with the consumption of opioid pain medications by country. Correlation analysis shows a significant correlation of the increased consumption with the individualism-collectivism dimension, with a higher score for individualism correlated with higher consumption. The examination of this finding reveals that the need for independence, autonomy, self-reliance, and control - traits that are more typical for individualism - can explain this correlation. The article describes the implications of this finding for designing educational information products for opioid awareness campaigns and provides directions for future research.
