NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

Docs could probably sleep through this and still earn $200

There’s nothing terribly new or surprising about the kind of email invitation to doctors that we came across today.

We simply present it as an opportunity for the general public to get a glimpse of how some of their doctors may be “educated” about new drugs.

  • Register for a 90-minute webinar about a sleep drug
  • Earn $200 (Canadian)

There was no fine print about whether you had to actually stay awake during the webinar.

On the same day on which we posted about “too few or too weak” medical school conflict of interest policies, does this style of “continuing education” give you any confidence?
