1. Although the interactions between doctors and pharmaceutical representatives have more influence than any other promotional media on prescribing practices (6), it is largely unmonitored.
2. In (country 1), one example of an ongoing monitoring network of the information provided by pharmaceutical representatives to doctors has been functioning for 15 years.
3. Recently, the public have started questioning the relationship between doctors and pharmaceutical companies. [Until recently used here would say that now they do not question this]
