This article has a correction. Please see:

The eighth paragraph of this news article by Bob Roehr stated that “most doctors (83%) believed that industry support should be eliminated from CME [continuing medical education]” (BMJ 2011;342:d2948, doi:10.1136/bmj.d2948). This is wrong. In fact, the study from which he was citing found that only 17% of doctors believed this.
