BLOGSCAN - More on the JAMA Commentaries on Physicians' Relationships with Industry
We recently blogged about Dr Marcia Angell's commentary about how the increasing influence of those with vested interests in selling products or services has "broken" the clinical research system. In the same issue of JAMA were two other commentaries. For further discussion of Dr Arnold Relman's call to end industry influence on continuing medical education, see this post by Dr Daniel Carlat in the Carlat Psychiatry Blog. For further discussion of all three JAMA commentaries, see this post by Merrill Goozner on the GoozNews blog.
