Evidence-Based Medicine

Has the leapfrog group had an impact on the health care market?

Medical Ethics - Advertising

The Company We Keep: Why Physicians Should Refuse to See Pharmaceutical Representatives "Whether physicians ought to interact with pharmaceutical sales representatives (reps) is a question worthy of careful ethical analysis. ? Empirical data suggest that interactions with pharmaceutical reps increase the chances that the physician will act contrary to duties owed to the patient. Ideally, a physician might both interact with reps and also do the research necessary to counteract the commercial bias in their messages. But a physician who actually did that research would, in turn, be devoting a good deal of time that might better be spent in other activities."
