What is Known:
• The previous studies focusing on parents’ perspectives were carried out in a hospital setting or focused on a specific disorder.
• Parents consider reassurance and advice from their general practitioner to be very important; the treatment is considered less important.
What is New:
• Parents considered for both general practitioners’ and community pharmacists’ verbal information, answers to their questions, and reassurance as more important than receiving pharmacological treatment, while general practitioners and community pharmacists consider prescribing/proposing medication and providing written information as less important.
• The expectations of the different groups (parents in relation to not only the healthcare providers but also the general practitioners and community pharmacists compared to each other) know a great resemblance.
