Rea­gan-Udall Foun­da­tion lays out meth­ods for FDA to com­bat mis­in­for­ma­tion

The Rea­gan-Udall Foun­da­tion on Thurs­day pub­lished a wide-rang­ing re­port on how the FDA can com­bat mis­in­for­ma­tion, mark­ing some progress on one of FDA Com­mis­sion­er Robert Califf’s key goals for the agency.

The 34-page re­port con­clud­ed that the agency should take a more proac­tive ap­proach to its com­mu­ni­ca­tion, or “pre­bunk” mis­in­for­ma­tion. It al­so rec­om­mends that the agency lever­age com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels, mes­sen­gers and me­dia to reach a broad­er au­di­ence, and eval­u­ate the tone that the agency us­es in its com­mu­ni­ca­tions.
