A Matter of Influence
Goldfinger, Stephen E.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1987 May 28; 316(22): 1408-1409.
A physician warns about the ethical implications of pharmaceutical industry involvement with continuing medical education programs. He cites examples of conferences arranged for physicians influential in their fields where attendees were educated and lavishly entertained at drug company expense. While acknowledging that pharmaceutical company support of physician education is unlikely to stop, Goldfinger suggests that the medical profession should develop guidelines for its members concerning participation in industry-sponsored programs.
