On April 20, the Engelberg Center convened an expert workshop to discuss prescribing information for health care professionals.
This workshop brought together a diverse set of stakeholders who discussed the following issues:
- How the prescribing information (PI) is currently accessed and utilized;
- If the current PI format is meeting the needs of prescribers and other health care professionals and if all PIs should be standardized in this format;
- How PIs could be encouraged as the primary resource for prescription drug information; and
- The content that is most useful for prescribers and other health care providers in the Patient Counseling Information (PCI) section of the PI.

I think it's unusual for the chief of staff to go on a trip, particularly on a trip this long. The chief of staff is usually more of a chief operating officer in the White House itself, and normally when your principal—whether it's the president himself or the head of Cabinet agency—goes abroad, you have his deputy and those folks staying behind to help manage operations in his absence.
