Pitts: Important Details on Government Detailing

June 13, 2012 – In a recent blog entry on Drugwonks.com, Center for Medicine in the Public Interest President and Co-founder Peter Pitts provides a link to his article on government detailing in a recent issue of the Drug Information Journal ().

In the article, Pitts states that this so-called “academic” detailing

is important to understand because “significant government funding has been provided to develop and roll out academic detailing programs.” This matters, he states, because the federal government “is spending tens of millions of tax dollars to tell American physicians how to practice medicine based on buy viagra pill comparative effectiveness studies that are commissioned without any public input or transparency.”
