Everything is always in process. Flapping like a butterfly, the Network is watching and working on the Compassion Project. The First sharing economy was knowledge. A non-profit blog enabling the exploration and efficient sharing of information, thoughts, and opinion, regarding autism, cosmology, philosophy, politics, psychology, science, sociology, theology, and truth. "It is time to tell all."
The way doctors are educated about medicines creates huge problems
in the Canadian healthcare system and is literally killing people. Right now doctors
are “educated” about drugs by salespeople for big pharma. They tell them what
is safe and best. The foxes educate the roosters. Thus opioids have been dispensed like aspirins
for things they should neverhave been
used for, becoming the go-to rather than the last resort. Doctors are becoming pharmaceutical salesmen
with perks as commissions.
This could be solved by banning all contact between pharma
and physicians. All educational materials and scientific data should go
directly to the medical societies or Health Canada for analysis and comparison.
This way the most effective most efficient, least costly choice can be
recommended. At the very least a top-ten lists can be produced for a range of conditions.
This would take out any corrupting influence
of sales and provide a reliable database for immediate access. Ignorance is
deadly in medicine.
Eliminating this link would greatly reduce, perhaps eliminate,
the over prescription of drugs like opioids and the resulting predictable addiction
and deaths. It would also keep medicine costs more competitive and affordable.
