This six-hour Short Course, the second conducted by the Alliance, is open to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of state regulation compliance. It will focus on how your company can remain compliant with a wide variety of ever-changing state regulations. Code of Conduct mandates, licensing and registration initiatives, transparency, drug disposal programs, and more will be covered in this learning- intensive program. As states increase their regulatory attention effecting the pharma industry and their implementation of requirements impacting our compliance role, it is critical that we educate ourselves on these evolving requirements.

Whether new to your compliance role or a veteran in this important functional area, you will benefit from the information in this one-day session. Compliance, HR, Legal, Operations, Brand Teams and Regulatory Affairs personnel will all find useful and important information on the latest state regulations with opportunities to discuss their impact with colleagues and our Sharing Alliance™ Subject Matter Experts.

Upcoming Short Courses

The Why - What has led us to where we are today? Why do states see the regulatory need? What may the future hold around state compliance?

The OIG, PhRMA and AdvaMed Codes - A discussion of these guidance documents and how some states have transitioned from “guidance” to regulatory mandate.

State-by-State Requirements - This section will cover the substance of our state regulatory mandates, to include: Compliance and Code of Conduct Requirements; Sales Representative licensing; registration and lobbyist requirements by state; state and county drug disposal programs; and, how federal transparency reporting provides a public view of your compliance to state spend limits and gift bans. This section will also note the nuances of the various state laws such as the variations on defining a Health Care Professional.

Impact on Compliance - So, what does it all mean? How should your policies and procedures accommodate state specific mandates in a harmonized approach that helps ensure compliance and risk avoidance? How do you preserve relationships with HCPs while complying with state requirements, managing disputes and the perception of data made public? How can transparency and sampling data be used to monitor your compliance program?

Open Forum - In group discussion, we will open the floor to your questions and concerns, providing you with the added opportunity to learn from the experiences of your peers.
