Inducement prohibition

April 15, 2014

On April 10, ACP’s council voted to amend the Code of Ethics and Standards to prohibit regulated members from offering, providing or being party to offering or providing an inducement in exchange for that patient obtaining a drug product or a professional service from the regulated member or the licensed pharmacy. The prohibition will come into effect on May 1, 2014.
