Individuals who work for medical technology, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical companies are likely to have interactions with Health Care Professionals. It is important that these interactions are ethically sound and don't stray from their primary purpose- sharing information in order to improve patient care. This led to the development of the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals and the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. This course will provide an overview of both codes, so that individuals who work in these industries will be aware how to properly carry out their role.
Course includes a video and audio component with stand-alone exam.
