Doctors Fighting for Gifts from Pharma Companies

In many countries, prescription drug advertising is banned, but pharma companies can still give little gifts to doctors. Now a Spanish blog covers, as reported by Advertising in Health, a lot of gadgets and gifts which sometimes are quite weird or have no functionality.

And if you think doctors are fed up with these, just take a look at the two videos below. The first one becomes interesting at 0:35.

    The second video looks just any other trade show or expo for any discipline. One gathers office supplies so as to have them when needed, and to bring back for colleagues who could not get away to said expo. The first one is partly the swag-gathering, and partly possibly a way of having canes to provide to patients who need them but who could not otherwise afford them (same thing goes on with manufacturers’ samples of drugs).
