More challenges to consider

Vol. 7, No. 8 / August 2008

I agree with Dr. Nasrallah’s observation that “As psychiatry’s promise grows, however, so do its frustrations.” In addition to Dr. Nasrallah’s list of 17 challenges to psychiatry, I propose adding the proliferation of industry-sponsored continuing medical education, unpublished unfavorable industry-sponsored research, and potential conflicts of interest when physicians are compensated by industry for conducting educational symposia.
