PUBLICATION EXCLUSIVE: Are physicians limited by government guidelines?

PUBLICATION EXCLUSIVE: Are physicians limited by government guidelines?
April 22, 2017

Welcome to another edition of CEDARS/ASPENS Debates. CEDARS/ASPENS is a joint society of cornea, cataract and refractive surgery specialists, here to discuss some of the latest hot topics in ophthalmology.

Pharmaceutical guidelines and FDA requirements continue to become more restrictive in the educational setting. Physicians and industry are significantly limited in what they can say in these settings. While the goal may be to maintain transparency and lack of bias, the consequence may be limitation of physician education. Have the restrictions gone too far? This month, Douglas Katsev, MD, and Alice T. Epitropoulos, MD, FACS, will discuss this controversial topic. We hope you enjoy the discussion.
