From Innovative Medicines Canada:
“Innovative Medicines Canada (IMC) is pleased to introduce a dynamic new Ethics and Integrity Education online tool to help its stakeholders understand the Code of Ethical Practices that guides the innovative pharmaceutical industry.
With short videos, interactive features, and Q&A segments, we hope this new tool will allow you to discover IMC’s Code of Ethical Practices and its importance in your day-to-day interactions. The tool also sheds light on commonly held misconceptions about practices of the innovative pharmaceutical industry. For example, did you know:
- The giving of gifts is strictly prohibited
- Adherence to the Code is a requirement of membership in the association
- Breaches of the code can result in fines up to $100,000 and potential expulsion from the association
To access the tool, please visit the Ethics & Integrity: How We Live our Code website.”
