Astellas Discontinues Individual HCP Funding
November 19, 2020: At Astellas, 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 will no longer provide funding directly to individual healthcare professionals (HCPs) to attend congresses and conferences, including virtual attendance. This decision is part of our efforts to continue to build our reputation as an ethical company working transparently with our external stakeholders. Astellas remains committed to supporting and providing industry-leading medical education.
Astellas remains committed to providing ongoing high-quality medical education opportunities that fulfill educational needs/gaps and, ultimately, improve patient care. We recognize the importance of HCPs accessing timely educational information to improve care for patients. Astellas will continue to share new scientific data and disease information in a variety of formats that ensure HCPs will continue to have access to the latest available data to understand the clinical use of our existing medications and new medical innovations.
Our goal is to deliver a globally consistent approach to medical education, which addresses changes in the external and regulatory environment, facilitates transparent engagement, and supports the evolving educational needs of HCPs so they can continue to provide the best care and most appropriate treatment to their patients.
