"Inside the world of academic detailing, we’re all convinced of the clinical power of information transmission when done well, and of the harm that can result if it’s done badly or not at all. But outside our mighty little community, many are skeptical about whether pushing out accurate evidence really has such enormous effects."

"If you’re just starting out, reach out to community partners and get a sense of what patients with substance use disorder are experiencing and the challenges they’re facing before you start detailing clinicians. You’ll better be able to represent what is happening in the community and the resources that exist when you’ve done your research first!" Read More

"I lead with energy and show my team how exciting this work can be. I think that's important because previously we didn’t have pharmacists embedded in primary care and patients didn’t have an option to book an appointment with a pharmacist for consultation. Our pharmacists are delivering a service that was not there before." Read More

"Be patient, be persistent (after all, you care and want them to be their best selves), and be persuasive with those that you’re detailing. You have a lot of natural talent, training, and experience to efficiently help people make informed decisions through detailing visits. Don’t limit it to therapeutic decision-making; extend it to the mental and emotional aspects of care, as well." Read More

"Many times, patients know someone working at the clinic in their town. It’s common for patients to travel long distances to get to a clinic where they don’t know anyone. It’s also common for patients to have to travel over 2 hours to access HIV care at a specialty clinic." Read More
