RxFiles

RxFiles is an academic detailing program providing objective, comparative drug information to clinicians.  The program began in 1997 as a service for Saskatoon family physicians.
 
In 2000, the program was expanded to provide service to physicians throughout Saskatchewan.  Efforts to keep our drug selection tools up to date resulted in the publication of the RxFiles Drug Comparison Charts book, beginning in 2001.  The book has become a practical tool for evidence based and clinically relevant drug use information throughout Canada.
