Finance trumps patients at every level – UK healthcare needs an inquiry

While this Guardian article isn't specific to psychiatry or psychiatric drugs, it does speak to an overall system failure:

 

Finance trumps patients at every level – UK healthcare needs an inquiry

 

Some key findings:

 

 

Not only do healthcare professionals misunderstand medical literature, there's also a problem with falsified information:

 

 

A quote from Dr. Gøtzsche, a long-time critic of psychiatric drugs:

 

  • According to Peter Gøtzsche, co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration, , side effects from prescription medications are the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

 

It was nice to read an article written by a doctor, Dr Aseem Malhotra,  a consultant cardiologist and member of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, who is calling out his profession and asking for an inquiry. 

 

Don't know if much will happen because of it, but it does validate what we all know to be true.

In an international survey of respondents from higher education institutions, 14% admitted to knowing of a colleague who fabricated, falsified or modified data and 34% of scientists report questionable research practices that included selective reporting of clinical outcomes in published research and concealing conflicts of interest.

This is a shameful disgrace.
