Relationship Between Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (PSR) and Physician Evaluation


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

The conclusion of a paper on the relationship between pharmaceutical sales representatives (PSRs) and physicians states: 

"Physician–pharmaceutical industry and its sales representative’s interactions and acceptance of gifts from the company’s PSRs have been found to affect physicians’ prescribing behaviour and are likely to contribute to irrational prescribing of the company’s drug. Therefore, intervention in the form of policy implementation and education about the implications of these interactions is needed."
