Abstract

Our aim, in this communication, is to determine of a typology of attitudes regarding disease symptoms from the data obtained in the European Social Survey (round 2). Based on the results, we try to measure, in each of the profiles identified, different provisions on medication use. The analysis shows the existence of an appropriation of the logical expertise of therapy management. However, this tendency assumes different proportions according to the disease conception profile.
