  • claim drug company sales representatives are a useful source of information for ambien professionals
  • and are really positive about the role that these companies can play in the provision of medical education

  1. I fully understand the nature of the campaign and will follow it with interest. However, what do you mean in terms of interactions being “evidence based”? Criticism of the guidelines is easy, coming up with your answer(s) of what represents “evidence based” will be considerably more difficult, I expect.
