Meadows RJ.
Drug information: the pharmaceutical manufacturer's viewpoint and involvement.
Drug Inf J 1977 Oct-Dec; 11:(4):221-4


Abstract:

To determine the needs of large drug information centres for industry-generated information sources 18 pharmacists were interviewed. A question-and-answer brochure providing a wide variety of information on individual drugs was considered to be the single most useful and important source of drug information. The pharmacists were convinced that the drug industry was genuinely attempting to provide them with the most up-to-date and scientifically objective information available.

There is no sin in being wrong. The sin is in our unwillingness to examine our own beliefs, and in believing that our authorities cannot be wrong. Far from creating cynics, such a story is likely to foster a healthy and creative skepticism, which is something quite different from cynicism.”
- Neil Postman in The End of Education
