Click here to view on demand.

The critically important interchange between physician and patient yields the decisions that determine pharmaceutical marketing success or failure. Adding to the complexity of this care-focused dynamic are significant influences on patient diagnosis and ultimately the choice of treatment. The physician is influenced to a great extent by external forces including health plan policies, professional guidelines, clinical information, and internally by experience, education, culture, and personal values.

This program will explore the means to maximize marketing outcomes, despite the significant forces that impact the critical decisions made, during the physician-patient interchange.
