Open Pharma is an initiative calling for more transparency in our health care system. It is a national campaign for all industry payments directed towards individual prescribers to be made public. Open Pharma seeks to bolster trustworthy relationships and ensure better science through more accessible clinical trial data. We believe that both trust and data should help inform patient decisions when it comes to their own health.
Open Pharma is advocating for:
1) Governments to mandate the public disclosure of all payments and transfers of value (i.e. gifts, meals) from the pharmaceutical industry to individual prescribers
2) The public release of clinical information concerning the safety and efficacy of drugs and medical devices by Health Canada
3) Industry funded research to be open access for re-analysis in academic journals and other platforms
