...The California Society of Hospital Pharmacists was recently asked by its members to formulate a policy for an appropriate relationship between the Society and the healthcare industry, addressing these concerns. In formulating its policy, it became clear that the society depended on healthcare industry support, gathered through journal advertising, fees for booths at its various educational events, and grants for speakers....In the following discussion we evaluate the appropriateness of the Society's policy by exploring the consensus view of advertising and promotion, the role of advertising, how prices are set by the healthcare industry, and the ethical problems that occur at the intersection of advertising practices and healthcare practice and propose some solutions -- relevant to the Society's policy -- to the observed problems.
