About the Seminar

This seminar is intended to help you adequately implement good social medical practices to avoid FDA enforcement actions for potential misbranding of your drug or device products.

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 say or not to say including how to implement your good social medical practices while ensuring your compliance by avoiding potential FDA enforcement actions.

The speaker will present how to implement good social media practices in a CAC-SI manner. *: CAC-SI refers to current, accurate and complete/comprehensive in a systematic, integrated manner.

Through this 60-min presentation, you will have opportunities to bring great value and benefits to your firm’s implementation of good social media practices in an efficient and effective manner.
