Attend this conference and learn how to benefit from off-label profit without putting your business at risk

In todayÂ’s world of off-label drug and device usage, companies walk a fine line between following the governmental regulatory guidelines and meeting business objectives. Interpreting the rules is often a confusing and daunting task, especially when it comes to issues such as pediatric dosages of medicines and prescribed drugs for oncology patients.

Pharmaceutical Education Associates has gathered together individuals from major pharmaceutical companies, regulatory bodies such as the FDA and the DOJ, healthcare education organizations, healthcare litigation experts, and even experts from overseas on European guidelines for off-label usage for this conference. They will clarify every aspect and detail of off-label usage. You will walk away with a thorough understanding of how to follow the guidelines and maximize the legal avenues of expression concerning off-label usage communication.

DonÂ’t miss the pre-conference workshop where the experts will clearly define how to develop, implement and maintain an effective off-label usage program for your organization. The session will be interactive, starting with a panel discussion, followed by small group work, and ending with a question and answer period.
Pharmaceutical and medical device executives should know more than just the current practices of their competitors; you also need to know how to improve upon these practices. This conference clarifies the risks that impede healthy practice, knowledgeable planning, and profits from off-label usage.
