Incorrect use of medicines occurs in all countries, causing harm to people and wasting resources.
Today, most prescribers get medicine information from pharmaceutical companies rather than independent sources such as clinical guidelines. This can often lead to overuse. Some countries allow direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription medicines, which may lead to patients pressuring doctors for unnecessary medicines.Red de Centros de Información de Medicamentos de Latinoamérica y el Caribe (RED CIMLAC)
