Industry has a long tradition of working with healthcare professionals. The Medical Technology Industry Code of Practice is self regulated by industry, and provides guidance on the medical technology industry's relationships with healthcare professionals and consumers. Under the Code there are specific obligations that need to be noted to ensure that member companies maintain compliance.
It is a requirement of the Code that all member company staff engaged in direct interactions with healthcare professionals, and those involved in promotional activities or purchasing decisions complete MTAA approved Code training.
There are two training options available to medical technology companies that meet this requirement.
Member and non-member companies may choose to complete MTAA’s self-paced online training, module 2.1 Introduction to the Code of Practice. This training is updated with the release of each new edition. The fee to complete this online module is free for members and $99 for non-members (including GST). Standard credit card fees apply.
MTAA offers face to face training on the Code of Practice. This training will be modified to accommodate the company’s requirements. If you are interested, please contact MTAA on firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 9900 0626.
