WHAT IS THE MEDTECH EUROPE CODE?
Important updates about the Code of Ethics
A code for more transparency, effective 1st January 2018
The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice regulates all aspects of the industry's relationships with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) and Healthcare Organisations (HCOs). One important change introduced by the Code as of 1 January 2018 is discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs. As of that date, independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by means of Educational Grants. Such Educational Grants can be provided to HCOs and PCOs.
Kenes Group (the ICS permanent Congress Organiser) is officially recognised by MedTech Europe as a compliant, trusted PCO to rely on in the process of organising medical educational events.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE SUPPORT OF ICS 2022?
Educational Participation Grants
As a trusted partner, Kenes Group will take on the responsibility for indirect sponsorship for ICS 2022. The industry will entrust the Kenes Group and provide educational grants directly, and Kenes Group/ ICS will be responsible for participants (HCPs) pre-selection. Educational Participation Grants of any amount are appreciated and important to the success of ICS 2022. Recipients (HCPs) will need to fulfil the criteria specified by ICS in order to be eligible to apply for an educational participation grant. Accepted grant recipients will be contacted by Kenes.
Confirmed support for medical education
Through this Code, members of MedTech Europe promote legitimate and ethical business practices, encouraging responsible and ethical interactions with HCPs and HCOs in the benefit of the patient.
