About TEC

Want to get in touch? See our Contact Us page for more information.

The main goal of the Therapeutics Education Collaboration (TEC) is to provide physicians, pharmacists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, naturopathic physicians, other health professionals, and the public with current, evidence-based, practical and relevant information on rational drug therapy. The overall philosophy of the TEC is to encourage clinicians to engage in shared informed decision-making, critical thinking, and exercise some degree of healthy skepticism when it comes to the use of new and old medications.

We try to keep the information useful, practical and relevant for physicians and pharmacists so that they can incorporate this information into their day-to-day practice. Humour (because evidence can be really dull) plays an important role in all our presentations. We are strong advocates of shared-informed decision-making and our sessions try to provide information in a way that you can use it with your patients. Maybe the best way to describe us is as the “Mythbusters” of drug therapy. Click HERE for some interesting myths/questions we have evaluated over the years.

The BS Medicine podcast receives no external funding and Mike and James rely on donations and subscriptions to cover the cost of producing the podcast.

We have had extensive experience, both locally and internationally, talking to health professionals and consumers about the rational use of medication. We have presented hundreds of seminars on drug therapy. In addition, we have written numerous articles in the medical literature on the area of rational drug therapy and have been editors for two internationally recognised textbooks on appropriate/rational drug therapy.
