There's a thin line between legitimate continuing medical education (CME) and illegal off-label promotion of a drug or device. Even with proper credentials, sales and marketing staff can place their companies on the wrong side of the law.

In a new BioWorld Today and Medical Device Daily audio conference, attorney Elizabeth Gobeil and former federal prosecutor Holly Pierson will detail the rules of CME and promotion. They'll examine what constitutes legitimate education, and identify the red flags that investigators are looking for. They'll also describe recent enforcement activities with an eye toward governmental priorities for the future.

"CME and Off-Label Promotion: Find and Fix Noncompliance Before the Feds Do" is just $325 per listening site. Scheduled for June 30th, from 1-2:30 p.m., it includes presentation handouts and a Q&A session with the speakers. A conference CD (MP3 format) is also available. Please call 800-688-2421 or 404-262-5474 and mention conference code T09566.
