Our program began in 1997 as a service to Saskatoon 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. Our book has become a practical tool for evidence-based and clinically relevant drug use information throughout Canada.

On our website, you will find our newsletter reviews, Q&As, Trial Summaries, and up-to-date RxFiles Comparison Charts and Geri-RxFiles Charts. The clinical relevance of these materials comes from their initial focus as academic detailing tools for the front-line practitioner wanting to provide the best possible drug therapy for their patients.
