Just 55 percent of UK doctors and other health care professionals agreed to publicly disclose information about their financial ties with drug makers, according to a new analysis.
The showing is a disappointment for the UK pharmaceutical industry’s trade group, which has touted its relatively new database, called Disclosure UK, as a vehicle for greater transparency that can generate increased trust among doctors, patients, and policy makers.
As an ignorant colonial, this news puzzles me. If the government runs/ pays for the healthcare, how can they demur to participate in this exercise?
[In American – Since the government pays them, how can they refuse?]
