OTHER COURSE PARTICIPANTS SAY:

"The course is very relevant for daily tasks regarding assessing marketing compliance."

Flurije Memishi, Compliance Specialist, LEO Pharma 


"This course is very relevant for everyone who works in the pharma industry, even if you do not have tasks that directly relate to interaction with HCPs. It is always good to know how to behave, especially when it is so restrictive. Furthermore, the course has really good lecturers, and you feel very welcome – Atrium is a place I would very much like to take a course again."

DAY 1

Laws and rules governing the pharmaceutical industry’s interaction with healthcare professionals (HCPs)

Who makes and monitors the rules – EU, EFPIA, Danish national laws and the Danish self-regulatory body ENLI, the Danish Ethical Committee for the Pharma¬ceutical Industry? Who has to comply – the company, the employee, the healthcare professional? How are violations sanctioned?

National and regional rules on pharma interaction in Denmark

Which laws apply when healthcare professionals collaborate with companies with respect to research projects, presentations, training, advisory boards, consultancy, etc.? What are the rules in the different Danish regions when it comes to inviting healthcare professionals employed at hospitals to educational or informational events?

ENLI’s rules on the interaction between the industry and HCPs

Under which conditions are you allowed to pay healthcare professionals and what kind of services are they allowed to deliver to your company? Are you allowed to give healthcare professionals product samples, educational and professional materials, small gifts or food and drinks? Which rules apply when you sponsor, organize or exhibit at a conference, congress or other events for healthcare professionals? And what about virtual and face-to-face meetings and training situations?

Workshop: How to assess pharma interaction like an ENLI investigator

Hands-on learning from real cases. How to evaluate when an activity for healthcare professionals is sufficiently serious and when it is “too entertaining” to be considered professional. How to assess which conferences, exhibitions and other events you can sponsor or exhibit at and when you should refrain from doing so. How to distinguish between paid professional collaboration and illegal economic advantages.
