Free to Choose Medicine

Bartley Madden discusses Free to Choose Medicine, a policy reform he formulated that would put control over medical decisions in the hands of patients and their physicians rather than the government. It would allow patients, under the advice of their doctors, to make informed decisions about the use of drugs that are in the late stages of clinical testing, but not yet approved by the FDA. Madden argues that Free to Choose Medicine will lead to more consumer choice and innovation and ultimately have a positive impact on the drug market.
