  1. Physicians' behavior and their interactions with drug companies : a controlled study of physicians who requested additions to a hospital drug formulary.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective.-It is controversial whether physicians'interactions with drug companies affect their behavior.

    To test the null hypothesis, that such interactions are not associated with physician behavior, we studied one behavior: requesting that a drug be added to a hospital formulary.

    Design.-Nested case-control study

    Setting.-University hospital.

    Participants.-Full-time attending physicians.

    Case physicians were all 40 physicians who requested a formulary addition from January 1989 through October 1990.

    Control physicians were 80 randomly selected physicians who had not made requests.

    Main Exposure Measure.-Physician interactions with drug companies, as determined by survey of physicians (response rate, 88% [105/120]).
