Ethicality in Direct to Consumer Advertising of Prescription Medicines: Consumers’ Autonomy and Safe Decision Making

Self-regulation of DTCA assumes consumers can make autonomous decisions. Two population-based studies examined responding to DTCA based on attitudes, knowledge and health behaviors. Attitudes and unhealthy behaviors predicted responding to DTCA, so raised concerns regarding regulations on DTCA. Further research exploring factors that contribute to consumers’ safe decision-making is described.
