Prescrire is a non-profit, continuing education organisation, committed to better patient care. Since 1981, Prescrire has provided healthcare professionals—and via them, patients—with the clear, comprehensive and reliable information they need about drugs and therapeutic and diagnostic strategies. Prescrire publishes a monthly journal in French and an international edition in English 11 times a year, plus a yearly supplement in French devoted to drug interactions. A non-profit organisation, Prescrire is wholly financed by its subscribers and accepts no advertising or other outside support.
