5th Annual Promotional Review Committee Compliance & Best Practices


ExL Events is hosting the 5th Annual Promotional Review Committee Compliance & Best Practices conference on October 16–17, 2017 at the Wyndham Hamilton Park in Florham Park, NJ.

Promotional review professionals have been challenged by many new regulatory developments in the last four years, due to the rapid growth of social media as a marketing platform, the popularization of online regulatory submission, and the still-growing shockwaves from 1st Amendment court decisions about off-label communication.

Speakers will provide all-new insights in response to audience requests on topics including proper outreach to managed markets, adaptive website review techniques, and ensuring promotional compliance with FDAMA 114.

The afternoon will have several workshop offerings, including “Creating More Impactful Reports and Communications,” “Telemedicine – The Next Big Thing in CME and QIE,” and “Innovating in Traditional CME Offerings.” The day ends with a networking, wine and cheese reception.

On Wednesday, the day starts again with a panel on “Shared Risk, Reduced Costs and Improved Outcomes – What’s the Role of CME in Value-based Healthcare,” with panelists Molly Mooney with the Cleveland Clinic, Michael Reilly of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, and Karyn Ruiz-Cordell of RealCME. Several other panels and a networking lunch will preclude the final panel, “Grants Review – The Art of Crafting Quality Grant Applications.” The final panel will include thoughts from Ann Marie DeMatteo of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Samantha Koth of Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, Derek Warnick of Pfizer Inc., and Greselda Butler of Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development and Commercialization, Inc.
