567 - We would like to know if we can make a claim about the % of patients who would recommend a specific treatment to other patients. The % is published in a retrospective study done on patients who were taking this specific therapy. It is a patient reported outcome that is not in the Product Monograph. Please advise if there is any way to put such a claim through.

References used to support treatment recommendations in drug advertising should be based on Canadian Consensus Guidelines, as treatment recommendations should be consistent with current Canadian medical opinion and practice. A retrospective study reporting patient opinion would not meet these rigors. (PAAB code section 3.2)
