Industry sponsorship of healthcare professionals’ attendance at third-party organised congresses has evolved from a direct to an indirect and anonymous approach with the new Code of Ethical Business Practice (http://www.medtecheurope.org) which introduces significant changes.
Under the MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice , Member Companies are not permitted to pay registration fees, travel or hospitality expenses directly to individual Healthcare Professionals for their participation in educational conferences organized by third-parties as of 1st January, 2018.
Member Companies can provide funds through third-parties such as Scientific Societies, PCOs (Professional Congress Organizers) or HCOs (Healthcare Organizations), that identify and select the HCPs who will benefit from the Educational Grant.
As PCO and HCO (CME Provider), Forma Communications supports the Sponsors in the management of Educational Grants for Healthcare Professionals participation at EURO-EUS 2023.
