Pharmaceutical Representative;Jun2011, Vol. 41 Issue 6, p5
The author reflects on the freedom of speech of pharmaceutical representatives in the U.S. He is critical on the Vermont law that limits the right of pharmacies to sell the doctor's prescribing data to pharmaceutical companies for marketing functions. He believes that the industry should need to go to a more advanced stage and stresses that medical representatives should concentrate on what matters and values the most.
