Here's an interesting read from Forbes.com: How the drug industry abandoned science for salesmanship. (Warning: It contains a graphic from the ad for Lamisil that sends me screaming from the room every time it's aired.) It includes this line:
- Often they encourage unauthorized off-label uses or sponsor "continuing medical education" sessions to stoke more prescriptions and broaden a drug's patient base.
Would someone please talk to Forbes about what CME is—and isn't?
