    Note that they sometimes you the term "economic" in a way that is a bit confusing:
    e.g. "This coupled with a strained economic situation". They are referring to the individual financial situation of the patient rather than how the country's economy is doing. The corresponding author's first language is probably not English.

    I'm quoting an awful lot of this, perhaps too much, I just think it's a useful paper highlighting what patients and patient organisations say and have experienced.
