Do you have an opinion on inducements?

The college has long made its concerns known about incentives being offered for professional pharmacy services. In the past year, however, we have observed changes in the forms of incentives, the quantities, and the frequency of programs and the targeting of vulnerable populations that have heightened our concern.

Therefore, ACP council is taking steps to better understand the issues and its options for dealing with these programs. In May, council received a privileged report on inducements and loyalty programs. The report investigates policies and legal precedent in other jurisdictions. This month, ACP will be surveying registrants and stakeholders and holding public focus groups.
