The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) sees ethical compliance as a key subject for the medical technology industry, particularly as a means to safeguard the important relationships that companies have with healthcare professionals with whom they work closely in developing and improving medical devices.
Important changes came into force from 1 January 2018 in part one of the latest edition of the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) Code of Ethical Business Practice (October 2016). This section of the code contains guidelines on medtech’s interaction with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and healthcare organisations (HCOs).
Changes to the code also touch on actions ABHI member companies (MCs) must take, phasing in over 2017/18, with regard to educational grants to healthcare organisations.
This course describes changes to part one of the code for 2018
All the main changes are from the MedTech Europe Code of ethical business practice derived text, which has been adopted by the ABHI. This code has replaced the Eucomed code.
