AbstractThis study aimed to explore the expectations on medications of Chinese fishermen, a group of culturally distinct people, when they consult their family doctors. A qualitative method of semistructured focus group interviews was used for data collection. Twenty-nine participants took part in eight focus group interviews. They were all from the southern district of Hong Kong Island where many of the residents have a fishing background. Their expectations of doctors' willingness to give them medicines might originate from their previous experiences with traditional therapies. Although some would prefer the medicines to be potent while others like them not to be too strong, they all wanted the medicines to lead them to fast recovery. It is therefore important for their western-trained family doctors to be culturally sensitive to their expectations and, hence, make more effort in explaining the use and misuse of medicines.
