About the Seminar

This seminar is intended to help you adequately implement good social media practices to avoid FDA enforcement actions for potential misbranding of your prescription drugs (humans and animals), biologics, and medical devices including other healthcare products (dietary supplements, cosmetics and OTCs).

On June 27, 2014, FDA issued an untitled letter to a pharmaceutical company concerning the firm’s sponsored link on the internet search engine.  FDA states:

The sponsored link provides evidence that the drug is intended for a new use for which it lacks approval, and for which its labeling does not provide adequate directions for use, which renders the drug misbranded within the meaning of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) or otherwise makes its distribution violative.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed the firm’s sponsored link on the Google as part of the FDA’s routine monitoring and surveillance program by the Office of Prescription Drug Promotion (OPDP). It is imperative that firms ensure their compliance to the applicable laws and regulations when they provide drug or device information to the public through social media.

In this presentation, the speaker will discuss what to consider and how to establish your good social media practices while ensuring your compliance to the laws and regulation to avoid potential FDA enforcement actions.

This 60 min seminar presentation will provide you a great opportunity to understand FDA’s perspective on social media practices covered in FDA’s recent guidances. You will learn about the various considerations that pharmaceutical and medical device firms need to consider when establishing procedures for social media practices.
