Descriptive statistics were used to examine associations between patient characteristics and their practice, attitude, and knowledge for the PIL. A total of 914 participants were surveyed. Results revealed that for frequencies and percentages were 585 (64.0%), 114 (12.5%), and 215 (23.5%) reported reading the PIL with "yes", "no", or "sometimes" respectively. People in Jordan have a good practice, attitude, and knowledge for the PIL. Around 91.8% reported the PIL is useful and 63.6% reported that is clear but only 48.1% reported the PIL is sufficient.
