Would somebody please help me with my English?

This literature review provides the evidence of the low quality of information in pharmaceutical promotion can have impacts on quality of doctors prescribing behaviour, patients’ health and quality use of medicines. I have identified four gaps that need to be addressed. Firstly, a need for a systematic review to summarize the available literatures on the quality of information in medical journal advertising. Secondly, demand for a current comparison study of advertising standard between countries which use different systems for regulating promotion. Thirdly, lack of information pertaining the standard of information provided by detailers to doctors in Australia. Finally, a gap of knowledge on the skills of physicians in critically analyzing pharmaceutical promotion.

Hi,

This literature review provides the evidence of the low quality of information in pharmaceutical promotion can have impacts on quality of doctors prescribing behaviour, patients’ health and quality use of medicines. I have identified four gaps that need to be addressed. Firstly, a need for a systematic review to summarize the available literatures on the quality of information in medical journal advertising. Secondly, demand for a current comparison study of advertising standard between countries which use different systems for regulating promotion. Thirdly, lack of information pertaining the standard of information provided by detailers to doctors in Australia. Finally, a gap of knowledge on the skills of physicians in critically analyzing pharmaceutical promotion.

I've suggested some changes.

Best wishes, Clive

This literature review provides evidence that the low quality of information in pharmaceutical promotion can have impacts on the quality of doctors' prescribing behaviour, patients’ health and quality use of medicines. I have identified four gaps that need to be addressed. Firstly, there is a need for a systematic review to summarize the available literature on the quality of information in medical journal advertising. Secondly, there is a demand for a current comparison study of advertising standard between countries which use different systems for regulating promotion. Thirdly, there is a lack of information pertaining to the standard of information provided by detailers to doctors in Australia. Finally, there is a gap <<< this is an awkward word here. Find another that expressesyour meaningmore clearly. eg 'a lsck'?of knowledge about the skills of physicians in critically analyzing pharmaceutical promotion.
Thanks Clive,
