In the past few years the scope of Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs) has evolved and broadened, affecting a greater variety of company activities, including both “promotional” and “non-promotional” areas, such as R&D and medical affairs activities. This increase in scope raises significant questions for companies, including understanding the impact on the broader organization. The CIAs that will be discussed may be US based, but the issues they cover are global. Whether you are US or globally focused, from regulatory affairs, medical, clinical, compliance or legal, this session is relevant to you and will help you understand the key CIA trends, their impact, and considerations in how to proactively address them.

Learning Objective(s):
