Abstract

Introduction: The H1N1 influenza pandemic of 2009-2010 has important health, social and media repercussions. Objective: to identify the opinions of the general population, risk groups and medical personnel on the 2009-2010 influenza epidemic. Design: Exploratory study, qualitative methodology. Methods: 10 focus groups in 3 Spanish regions with 51 participants. Content analysis. Main results: The attitudes and opinions of the general population and risk groups gradually change from a state of initial concern, caused by the social alert promoted by the media to a reduced perceived risk. The lack of trust in the information sources and the need for a greater involvement of the authorities also appear. Conclusion: The authorities must rely on advanced information systems, train personnel of health services and organize their work on coordination and involvement of all sectors.
