Doc-toring medicine? Ft. Dr Peter Gotzsche, Director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre

The doctor-patient relationship is often revered as an exemplar of trust and openness. But with the medical profession's intrinsic relationship with the pharmaceutical industry, many doctors are knowingly or unknowingly being converted into industry sales representatives. How have these links lead to the pathologising and overmedication of patients, and are our trusted healers doing more harm than healing? Oksana is joined by Dr Peter Gotzsche, the Director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, to examine these issues.
