Alerted by Kevin, MD (who runs the best clipping service for medbloggers), I read this little article: Drug Sales Visits Affect Doctors Little- U.S. Study
Now I’m even more confused. I thought I was just a brainless dolt / whore, ready to prescribe the latest and greatest super-expensive drug if I got a pen or a lunch out of it (though I am a bad doc, I don’t do that).
I’m heartened that others see drug reps as the biased sources of misinformation they are! Hooray!
Perhaps I don’t need to start my own chapter of No Free Lunch.org, a physician organization dedicated to weaning docs off the drug-rep crack. Well, I’ll keep it in mind.
