As a member of Medicines Australia, Astellas Pharma Australia supports the quality and safe use of medicines and to conduct ourselves ethically. Reportable payments or transfers of value are:
- Payments made to Australian healthcare professionals for the provision of services such as giving a lecture, chairing an educational meeting, providing advice as a member of an Advisory Board or as a Consultant
- Airfares, accommodation and/or conference registration fees to attend medical education as part of those services
- Sponsorship of a third party organisation to conduct educational activities for Australian healthcare professionals who are engaged in patient care; and
- To health consumer organisations to services to Australian patients.
Astellas Pharma Australia has prepared reports for publication in accordance with the Medicines Australia Code of Conduct, Edition 19 and Australia’s Privacy legislation. The reports identify healthcare professionals by name where their consent has been provided. Where consent has not been provided the information is reported in aggregate.
Reporting these payments are mandatory – details will be reported because healthcare professionals should reasonably expect that all reportable payments or transfers of value will be disclosed for each healthcare professional, by name.
To comply with our privacy obligations, the reports may be amended from time to time. Any use or disclosure of the data by a third party is the responsibility of that third party, who must comply with the Australian Privacy Act 1988.
