Clin psych just dropped me a note requesting that I scan in the documents that I described yesterday. These were the industry-funded CME activities that poor Primary Psychiatry has to schlep around like the abused but well-paid mule that it is.
I tried scanning them right into this blog but Blogger gave me too much technical grief. So I have posted them all at Google Docs. Just click on the relevant links to go directly to the artwork.
1. Here's the DVD funded by i3CME and Bristol-Myers Squibb in which they paid three of the foremost experts in schizophrenia to say nothing about Abilify's propensity to cause akathisia/activation.
2. Here is Stephen Stahl's Cephalon-sponsored newsletter, "Wake up!", which awards 1.25 hours of CME credit to encourage you to detect more patients with "excessive sleepiness" and to prescribe Provigil.
3. Here is a larger version of the actual journal (also pictured above) with its Eli Lilly overwrap advertising a nonsense telesession about bipolar disorder.
4. Finally, here is the first page of the Michael Clark "Cymbalta Synergy" article including the erroneous financial disclosure.
Good old show and tell. I haven't had this much fun since kindergarten!
