Marchand CR.
Physician attitudes toward sources of drug information.
Drug Inf J 1977 Oct-Dec; 11:(4):225-6


Physicians’ attitudes towards sales representatives and journal advertisements and the influence of these types of promotion are reviewed. The role of these two sources of information seems to be fading. We are in need to up-to-date well planned studies with proper statistical evaluation of old and new factors that may influence the prescriber.
