  1. Personal use of drug samples by physicians and office staff.

    Article - En anglais

    Context. - Pharmaceutical samples are commonly used in ambulatory care settings.

    There is limited research on their use or impact on health care providers and patients.

    Objective

    - To determine the extent of personal use of drug samples over a 1-year period by physicians and medical office staff.

    Design, Subjects, and Setting

    - An anonymous cross-sectional survey of all physicians, resident physicians, nursing staff, and office staff in a family practice residency.

    Main Outcome Measure

    - Quantity of drug samples taken for personal or family use.

    Results

    - Of 55 surveys issued, 53 (96%) were returned.

    A total of 230 separate drug samples were reported taken in amounts ranging from 1 dose to greater than 1 month's supply.

    Two respondents reported no use of drug samples, while 4 respondents reported taking more than 10 different samples.

    Conclusion

    - Drug samples are commonly taken by physicians and office staff for personal and family use.

    The ethical implications of this practice warrant further discussion.
