Health Care Professionals
The Right Medical Professionals Working with the Right Companies for the Right Reasons
Many medical experts interact with biopharmaceutical companies in an advisory capacity from time to time. Without these crucial collaborations—in clinical trial settings, advisory boards, and educational speaking and publishing–companies would be unable to bring to market medicines for better public health. Many regulatory bodies exist to enforce ethical interactions among pharmaceutical executives and medical experts. In addition to the guidelines laid out by regulatory agencies, many institutions are placing restrictions on medical provider collaborations with outside entities. The foundation of these guidelines is a fundamental precept that pharmaceutical executives should only engage those medical experts whose skills and experiences are relevant to the development need at hand.
