31 - Where can I find good samples of detail aid online?

  • Advertising of prescription drugs beyond name price and quantity to the general public is prohibited by law in Canada. Therefore, it would be difficult to find such material on an open web-site. Individual companies have password protected sites for promotion to health professionals. You would need a health professional to help you gain access or company permission on an exceptional basis. Also, the Ontario Medical Asssociation is launching their OMD web portal and pharma companies can put promotional detail aids on that site with access being restricted to registered physician members. You can see promotional material on U.S. based pharmaceutical company sites. We cannot speak to the quality of that material because they would not have been reviewed by the PAAB.
