Lots of buzz over gifts to doctors
and also over industry-funded CME
lately, but my understanding is that meals can be provided for the purposes of detailing doctors on products, e.g. if there is pertinent discussion of the drugs. My lunches are safe.
Various swag like pens, notepads, paperweights, etc are now verboten, and that's fine with me, I guess. Although there's lots of other industries that will continue to be able to advertise with pens, so there's all sides to this issue.
Will keep you posted on this important news ...
