June 16 – 18, “Cutting the Cord: Curtailing Commercial Influence on Healthcare” Virtual Conference
PharmedOut’s 2021 conference, Cutting the Cord: Curtailing Commercial Influence on Healthcare, will discuss how commercial influence on meetings, publications, and education affects what health care providers (including prescribers, pharmacists, psychologists and social workers) believe about both drugs and diseases. This year, we will focus on effective strategies for mitigating the damaging effect of industry influence on medical education and public health.
This virtual three day event will also bring together nationally and internationally recognized experts in medicine, nursing, law, psychology, and sociology in a unique interdisciplinary conference aimed at fostering collaboration across professions to focus on creating solutions to combat industry influence.
The conference will be organized around five major topics:
- Rational Prescribing and Deprescribing
- Medical Journals and Publication Ethics
- Pharma-Free Medical Information
- Legal and Legislative Action
Speakers include Jerry Avorn, MD; Ginny Barbour, DPhil; Lisa Bero, PhD; Peter Doshi, PhD; Quinn Grundy, RN, PhD; Aaron Kesselheim, MD, JD, MPH; Joel Lexchin, MD; and many more.
In support of improving patient care, MedStar Health is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and the American Academy of PAs (AAPA) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
