We polled n=114 Canadian General Practitioners (GPs) and n=205 Pharmacists (Pharms) on their willingness to see sales representatives, the effect detailing has on their behaviour, and what companies can do to improve the overall experience.

88% of GPs and 86% of Pharms agree that sales reps add value to their practice and aid in better treating their patients. In addition, sales reps also positively impact their willingness to use a product, knowledge of a product and knowledge of additional support offered by the manufacturer.
