UK HEALTHCARE REGULATORY COMPLIANCE: the implications for the Medical Society meeting
Tuesday, 27 March 2018, The Victory Services Club, London 11am – 2.30pm
Healthcare Regulatory compliance ostensibly is the main responsibility of the pharmaceutical and medical device industry, giving direction in a self-regulatory environment, which determines how they operate and engage with healthcare professionals, patient organisations and the general public.
However as organisers of “3rd party scientific meetings, which create an engagement platform for industry to come together with the various stakeholder groups, the impact of the decisions being taken by the commercial healthcare sector and their regulatory bodies are having a direct impact in the administration, event design and revenue streams of Society meetings.
Whilst medical societies could disregard the healthcare regulatory changes and elect not to accommodate them, in doing so it is likely to result in the commercial stakeholders withdrawing their support for the association activities. This is likely to have a significant impact on revenue and viability of Society’s activities, as well as being detrimental to the content and research being discussed.
There is still significant confusion and misunderstanding of what the various codes mean for Society meeting organisers and how they can take account of the codes that apply to create a meeting or congress which offers a compliant environment for industry stakeholders .
In this seminar we will plan to build understanding of:
• Who are the regulators?
• Are their differences impacting national and international meetings?
• The areas of meeting delivery most likely to be “hot spots”
• What’s new? – EFPIA Tov, Medtech Europe Direct HCP sponsorship and how do these apply in the UK
• Understanding the revised IPCAA Guidelines
• Congress vetting
• Your Questions answered
Facilitator: Caroline Mackenzie, Global Association Partners
