Joint workshop on tools and systems used for prescription control & the ethical and legal aspects of adaptive decision making (D2.07 & D3.09)
On the 17th of January 2017, as part of its Annual Meeting, the ADAPT SMART consortium hosted a multi-stakeholder workshop on ‘Tools and systems used for prescription control and the ethical and legal aspects of adaptive decision making’. The topic of this workshop related to two different deliverables: D2.07 (focused on prescription control) and D3.09 (focused on ethical and legal aspects of adaptive decision making)
The objectives of the workshop were:
- To share an understanding of the in-depth analysis of the identified tools/systems to guide appropriate use, experience to date, and their feasibility and impact.
- To share an understanding of the ethical and legal aspects of prescription control under MAPPs between all major stakeholders, with a special focus on patients and health care professionals.
- To jointly explore potential recommendations to address the legal concerns, ethical concerns, how the current tools/systems can be sympathetic to and supportive of the MAPPs pathway, and any impact those solutions may have.
More than 30 representatives including; European regulators, Health Technology Assessment (HTA) bodies, the pharmaceutical industry, patient organizations, health care professionals and academics attended the workshop.
