Healthcare professional engagement in Australia
The new Medicines Australia Code of Conduct will increase transparency about the vital role of healthcare professionals in the development and use of new, innovative medicines. Healthcare professionals help to educate patients about medicines and their safe, ongoing use – a bond of trust that we, as a Medicines Australia member company, want to help make even stronger.
Novartis values the expert knowledge of patient behavior and of management of diseases that comes from interactions with the healthcare community, Novartis Pharmaceuticals will disclose details of these engagements on this site. Novartis will provide details of reportable payments or transfers of value to a healthcare professional.
Reportable payments or transfers of value are:
- Payments for the provision of services such as giving a lecture, chairing an educational meeting, providing advice as a member of an Advisory Board or as a Consultant
- Airfares, accommodation and/or conference registration fees to attend medical education as part of those services.
The reports are downloadable below, and these will be available for at least 3 years from the date of publication.
