Toronto Star opinion piece,May/16:"Let the sun shine on doctors' ties to pharma"


Recommended Posts

Written by two doctors, this Toronto Star opinion piece has some pointed words regarding the shady ways of Big Pharma companies who dupe doctors into prescribing their products without giving clear information about known risks.


Here's an excerpt:


The OxyContin story is a particularly egregious example of what can happen at the pharma-physician interface. Companies don’t always use false information to “educate” doctors about their drugs, but they tend to selectively present information favouring their products. Doctors are free to do their own research, but the reality of medical practice is that few have the time.

Me too! I'm a huge fan. I check his twitter now and then, just to see what he's posting about. I'm so glad to know there are docs like this one out there, practising and teaching.
