WARNING! APACMed evolves on 1st January 2018
As of January 2018, and in line with the APACMed Code of Ethical Conduct , educational grants are awarded to practitioners through a renewed sponsorship process.
As the association explains: “The revisions to the Code are an important step to align the APACMed Code with international best practices which preserve and enhance the independence of HCPs’ decision-making.”

What does the new APACMed regulation say?
APACMed’s initiative to improve transparency in relations between HCPs (Healthcare Professionals), HCOs (Health Care Organisations) and industries, is consistent with MedTech Europe’s newest Code of Ethics: regulations on both sides were designed to provide the highest ethical standards to collaborative interaction between industrial partners and HCPs, specifically as regards educational events. APACMed officially recognises Europa Group as a trusted third-party to rely on in the process of organising educational events.
APACMed Asia-Pacific officially recognises Europa Group as a compliant, trusted-third party to rely on in the process of organising educational events.

A revamped process for attendance
Up until now, companies would provide direct sponsorship to HCPs for their attendance at third-party organised educational events. Considerable efforts are being made to frame effectively and support interactions between Industry Partners and Healthcare Professionals (HCP).
Starting January 2018, companies will allocate educational allowances to HCOs/PCOs (Professional Conference Organisers as well as medical institutions) instead. The latter will then carry out a pre-selection process and attribute these allowances to HCPs accordingly.
Keeping your My PCR account up to date
The pre-selection process involves completing your My PCR profile. In order to maximise your chances of being supported to attend a PCR Course, you should consider updating your account information accurately and systematically.
