At the next meeting of the Medical Society of New Jersey, to be held at Asbury Park, on the fourth Tuesday in June, 1896, an important proposition, as indicated in our caption, will be discussed. It foreshadows the adoption of an entente cordiale fostering a spirit of harmony among professional men. The points involved as regards the physician are the avoidance of discrimination in favor of one pharmacist to the detriment of others, except for dishonesty or ignorance, the refusal of gratuities, the monopoly of secret formulas, and encroachments upon the superior technical skill of the trained pharmacist.
On the part of the pharmacist, his duties forbid the recommendation of drugs for specific purposes, as by advertisement or otherwise, the diagnosis of disease without proper medical training, and the distribution of printed matter to physicians setting forth therapeutic indications for the use of drugs or medicinal preparations.
