HCEA To Host Webinar on New International Ethics Rules

Download

On Wednesday, December 13, 2017, the Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association (HCEA) will present a webinar entitled: “Preparing for the 2018 Ethical MeDTECH, APACMed and China Codes Impact on International Attendee Participation at US Meetings.”

As we have previously written about, beginning January 1, 2018, medical device companies in various regions of the world will no longer be able to directly sponsor participant’s travel to educational meetings. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and other organizations have applauded this effort, as it furthers the independence of education and helps to align international codes with current United States standards.

However, because of financial constraints in many markets around the world, healthcare providers depend on outside support to attend US-based meetings. Therefore, it is possible that your annual meeting may see some changes in 2018 and beyond. This webinar will review the codes and explore some of the concerns expressed by medical meeting planners.

The webinar will be moderated by Policy & Medicine’s editor, Thomas Sullivan, and includes panelists: Aline Lautenberg, General Counsel and Director of Legal and Compliance at Eucomed, EDMA, and MedTech Europe; Matthew E. Wetzel, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at AdvaMed; and Christine Wooster, Chief Revenue Officer at the Heart Rhythm Society.

Registration for the webinar is free for HCEA members and $50 for non-HCEA members. For additional information, contact Kristen Leikwold at kleikwold@hcea.org or call (703) 935-1961.
