Drug Information and the Pharmaceutical Industry
The Drug Information Center at the College of Pharmacy works closely with various pharmaceutical manufacturers in providing training programs for sales and marketing forces. The Center offers week-long training sessions during which pharmaceutical industry professionals get "hands-on" experience in the use of IV drug delivery systems along with didactic sessions explaining various aspects of hospital-based pharmacy practice.
The Center also works with the pharmaceutical industry in their efforts to provide continuing education materials to practicing healthcare professionals by preparing unbiased clinical reviews for Internet or print publication.
Drug Information and E-commerce
In addition to providing traditional drug information services, the Center has developed relationships with the E-commerce industry. The Center has been involved with the development of new information technologies designed to improve pharmaceutical care to patients and provides support to Internet-based consumer information services.
