MEDTECH & EDUCATIONAL GRANT
The 11th EAPC Congress has been submitted to the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice.
What is the MedTech Europe Code?
Important updates about the Code of Ethics
A code for more transparency, effective 1st January 2018
The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice regulates all aspects of the industry’s relationships with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs).
One important change introduced by the Code as of 1 January 2018 is discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs. As of that date, independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by means of Educational Grants. Such Educational Grants can be provided to HCOs and PCOs.
What does this mean for the support of EAPC 2020?
EAPC and the Congress Organizer will take on the responsibility for indirect sponsorship for EAPC 2020.
Educational Participation Grants are appreciated and important to the success of EAPC 2020.
Recipients (HCPs) will need to fulfil the criteria specified by EAPC in order to be eligible to apply for an educational participation grant. Accepted grant recipients will be contacted by the Congress Secretariat.
Confirmed support for medical education
Through this Code, members of MedTech Europe promote legitimate and ethical business practices, encouraging responsible and ethical interactions with HCPs and HCOs in the benefit of the patient.
Don’t wait any longer to start supporting medical education at EAPC 2020!
