About the project
This project stems from the Evidence, Influence and Policy Collaborative, led by Prof Lisa Bero, which seeks to translate rigorous and unbiased evidence into clinical practice and health policy. One facet of this collaborative is the study of bias in healthcare: we sought to understand the extent of pharmaceutical industry marketing in the form of sponsored events for health professionals as a means to begin tracing the influence of marketing on clinical care.

About the data
The dataset contains 301 publicly available company transparency reports covering the period from October 2011 to September 2015. The PDF reports were downloaded from the website of Medicines Australia and converted in Excel files. The reports contain information on the location, the type of event and all “transfers of value” to professionals who attended the events, including hospitality and travel for individual attendees, as well as event costs such as room rentals and speaker honoraria.
