Steve Morgan comments on the fact that spending on Canadian prescription drugs has surpassed $18-billion in 2004. Morgan states that with such a large investment, investment in pharmaceutical products should not be made on faith in promised outcomes.
Morgan adds that with more patients taking more drugs over longer periods, it is vital to the safety of Canadians and the sustainability of our health care system to disseminate unbiased information, monitor the use of prescription drugs and detect both expected and unexpected outcomes.
