The study was conducted last night by HCD Research and the Muhlenberg College Institute of Public Opinion (MCIPO), as part of a series of studies which were conducted on April 27, and May 6, to obtain physicians' perceptions of the H1N1 virus. The studies are being conducted on a weekly basis to measure physicians' perceptions regarding their personal and professional concerns. To view detailed results go to: www.hcdi.net or www.mediacurves.com.

Results from the study on April 27, revealed that 21% of physicians reported that they were "Concerned" or "Extremely Concerned", compared to this week's study, in which 9% of physicians indicated that they were "Concerned" or "Extremely Concerned." Physicians also reported that there is less risk that the virus could result in a catastrophic pandemic.

There was a slight increase in the number of physicians who reported that they have not changed their behavior or life style, with 61% indicating they have not changed their behavior, compared to 56% in the May 6 study. When asked what top three sources they use to obtain information on H1N1 swine flu, government agency communications (79%) was rated number one, followed by the news media
