As far as many patient groups are concerned, the theme song for the pharmaceutical industry should be Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation.”
For all the criticism that drug makers have endured in recent years, a new survey finds that they are faring worse than ever. Just 38 percent of patient groups thought the pharmaceutical industry had an “excellent” or “good” reputation last year, down from almost 45 percent in 2015, according to PatientView, a research firm that canvassed more than 1,400 patient groups from 105 countries.
Not surprisingly, the pharmaceutical industry fares poorest when it comes to pricing.
Here’s another musical name you can give to Pharma:
yes, Pharmvet1, but the Joan Jett is catchier, to my ears, anyway. But keep em coming. We like soundtracks for our posts
And by extension, the name of Joan’s backup group, the Blackhearts refers to us evil greedy Pharma folks, who, like Fluke Man from the X Files swim out of our sewers to snatch your money.
