Recognizing Consumer Issues in DTC Pharmaceutical Advertising

Authors


Abstract

As one of the most controversial modern business practices in history, direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription medications is a critical topic for consumer advocates, but the current body of literature falls short of providing practical guidance for the eminent policy change. The current article reviews the existing perspectives on direct-to-consumer advertising and offers directions for answering important questions that focus on the consumer’s interests.
