Astellas is committed to providing ongoing high-quality medical education opportunities that help ensure appropriate clinical use of our products, fulfill educational needs/gaps and, ultimately, improve patient care.
Our culture is rooted in openness and integrity, and we continuously work to be a trusted leader in the ever-changing healthcare environment. In step with the evolving global landscape, Astellas does not provide direct funding to individual HCPs to attend local, regional, or international congresses or medical education meetings.
We recognize the importance of healthcare professionals accessing timely educational information to improve care for patients, and we remain committed to providing ongoing high- quality medical education opportunities that help ensure the appropriate clinical use of our existing medications and new medical innovations, fulfil educational needs/gaps and, ultimately, improve patient care.
Astellas shares new scientific data and disease information in a variety of formats that support the critical role of healthcare professionals in improving patient care, including:
- Grants for Education, also known as Independent Medical Education (IME)
- Symposia, webinars, e-learnings and web-based education (disease, treatment or product focused); examples include satellite symposia during a congress, speaker programs and product theatres
- Congress summaries
- Sponsorship of educational conferences
- Grants to healthcare organizations (HCOs) to support healthcare professional congress attendance and, in some cases, specialist training events.
