Interactions with Healthcare Professionals

Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals abides by the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals for its drug products.

The PhRMA Code is part of an ongoing effort to ensure that biopharmaceutical marketing practices and informational activities comply with the highest ethical and professional standards. Ethical relationships with healthcare professionals are critical to helping patients by developing and marketing new medicines. An important part of achieving this mission is ensuring that healthcare professionals have the latest, most accurate information available regarding prescription medicines, which play an ever-increasing role in patient health care.

The PhRMA Code focuses on interactions with health care professionals that relate to the marketing of our products and contains detailed provisions specific to the conduct and training of speakers. Under the Code, company decisions regarding the selection of healthcare professionals are based on defined criteria such as medical expertise, reputation, knowledge and experiences in a particular therapeutic area, and communication skills.

The company also adheres to the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) Code of Ethics on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals for its non-drug products.
