Misdiagnosis of conflict
Daniel Carlat has a near hysterical piece about that equates pharmaceutical and biotech funding of CME to money laundering. Which I guess makes all the academics, researchers and clinicians who particpate...criminals? Carlat needs to take a dose of the trazadone he defends in one of his newletters that are available for a hefty fee. Which leads me to another point: nothing is stopping self-righteous types like Carlat from going into business themselves to offer CME programs. Oh, and if I were Carlat, I would drop the characterization "Unbiased" from the description of his expensive newsletter. He is as biased as anyone. Anyone who calls his colleagues money launderers is biased.
