Officious, left wing ideologue hypocrite Robert Steinbrook, MD of left wing, Hate America, Dartmouth University, goes apoplectic over sponsored continuing medical education. Meanwhile, he has no trouble taking money from the left wing Macy Foundation to further their left wing agenda. They fund only politically correct grants, under their Harvard indoctrinated graduate infiltrated administration. So Steinbrook' s credibility is nil by his bias. This article has the credibility of a Ford salesman criticizing Toyota cars. The criticism is pretextual and self-interested.
He shows no harm to patients nor to doctors. Yet, the remedies gets threatening. Educational grants by drug companies will be violating Federal anti-kickback statutes, and the False Claims Act. They risk fraud and abuse. How can these be avoided? Funnel pooled grants through agencies such as presumably his own, eliminating the competition to medical school CME activities from far more competent commercial providers.
Meanwhile, JAMA, that left wing propaganda organ, is filled with drug company advertising. No mention of that anywhere. JAMA also provides its own CME, and is a competitor to those it attacks.
Here. I am still looking for the disclosure statement of the conflicts of interest of Dr. Steinbrook, the Macy Foundation, and of JAMA.
