Guidelines, Standards & By-laws

Canadian Medical Information Guidelines:

  • High quality, balanced, and up-to-date information about medicines is essential for their safe and effective use in treating patients. Pharmaceutical companies’ Medical Information departments are a leading source for such information and should be viewed as one of the most reliable sources for medical information on their products. The Medical information department is a customer-facing team that helps improve the safe and effective use of a company’s products by providing accurate, fair-balanced, and timely information to healthcare professionals and patients.

  • Appreciating the need for high standards in the provision of medical information in Canada, a working group within the PVN-MI Network – Canada has developed guidelines, with the intent that pharmaceutical companies across Canada adhere to the spirit of these guidelines as they pertain to the role of medical information.
