PharmedOut website goes live

I’ve just been looking at the new PharmedOut website.

They say: “PharmedOut is an independent project run by physicians for physicians and other prescribers. Our goal is to disseminate information about how pharmaceutical companies influence what we prescribe, to increase access to unbiased information about drugs, and to encourage physicians to choose pharma-free CME.

PharmedOut is funded through the Attorney General Consumer and Prescriber Education grant program, created as part of a 2004 settlement between Warner-Lambert, a division of Pfizer, Inc., and the Attorneys General of 50 States and the District of Columbia, to settle allegations that Warner-Lambert conducted an unlawful marketing campaign for the drug Neurontin® (gabapentin) that violated state consumer protection laws.”

I say: it looks like a very good website – check out the RX files and the Resources pages, especially the Conflict-of-interest Database.

One to bookmark and keep an eye on.
