Effective January 2018, most regions around the globe will be adopting new regulations that limit direct commercial funding to physicians for travel to any medical conferences. The Medical Device Industry has formed regulatory agencies, Ethical MedTech in Europe and APACMED in Asia to implement these regulations. Other regions, including Latin America are adopting similar regulations. The reduction of direct commercial support will have a huge impact on medical meetings and their international attendance. It is anticipated that the Pharmaceutical Industry will likely follow suit by 2019, if not before.
- Understand the details of these new regulations and what’s driving the Medical Device Industry to put them in place.
- Learn how to adhere to both international and ACCME regulations for commercial support that apply to CME Providers.
- Identify and discuss potential solutions to preserve international physician attendance at your medical meeting.
