Pfizer creates Web site on medication safety

Pharma Compliance Alert, September 17, 2008

Pfizer launched a new Web site Monday to provide patients and healthcare professionals with information regarding potential health risk and health benefit information for prescription products.

The site includes plain English explanations, graphics, and video clips.  

It also:
  • Links to information about how to report a drug side effect to the FDA
  • Details how pharmaceutical companies, physicians, and regulators monitor drug safety from the drug’s creation until well after it is on the market
  • Suggests questions patients should ask their physicians and the information they should share with physicians

The Web site is the latest step from Pfizer to counter industry critics. Earlier this year, the company changed the way it funds continuing medical education and endorsed the new PhRMA Code.
