The Relationship Between Doctors and Drug Companies
Last year the Toronto Star had an article titled “Drug companies wine and dine family physicians“, and it details how pharmaceutical companies were hosting fancy dinners for doctors labelled as educational events.
In another article on the CBC titled “Healthcare leaders want drug company payments to doctors made public“, people in the health industry are looking for more transparency which in turn means more trust.
Because of the nature of a for profit healthcare system, the United States has different problems than here in Canada. However, I”ve often wondered how much influence there actually is in Canada and how much more is being attempted.
From medication to eye care, this is also something that caught my attention. If you haven’t heard of a company called Luxottica, you might just want to investigate them a little more as it was an “eye opening” experience for me. The video I share this week will also give you an indication to what role they play in prescription eyewear.
