Medical research and development are often closely linked to pharmaceutical companies and their funding. This webinar will explore the ethical and professional implications of this for Australian medical practitioners

Relevance to General Practice

  • Describe what constitutes evidence in the context of clinical innovation and pharmaceutical companies
