: This study complies with the Declaration of Helsinki. Ethics approval was deemed unnecessary in accordance with Dutch regulations. The relevant Dutch law (Medical Research Involving Human Subjects Act (in Dutch: Wet medisch-wetenschappelijk onderzoek met mensen (WMO)) requires only certain research to be reviewed. Research is subject to the WMO if it concerns 1) medical scientific research, and 2) participants are subject to procedures or are required to follow rules of behaviour (Article 1.1b. Available from: ExternalRef removed (in Dutch)). This is explained by the Central Committee on Research Involving Human Subjects (the Committee created in Dutch law to administer the operation of this law)—the “CCMO”—on its website: ExternalRef removed (in English). Expert interviews and analyses of public information (as those undertaken in this study) are not within the meaning of medical scientific research, nor do they place the participants under a particular process or behaviour change. Therefore, the research undertaken here is not required to be reviewed under Dutch law. Respondents provided informed consent before participation, and their anonymity was ensured. The personal data collected through the study was and is subject to the personal data management requirements of the University.
