Provision of High-quality Information to Healthcare Professionals
Given that pharmaceuticals by nature have both benefits and risks that must be carefully balanced, it is important for pharmaceutical companies to generate high-quality information on their efficacy and safety, and to provide the information to the medical field in order to promote their proper use. In the early phase after the launch of a new drug, in particular, there is not a sufficient amount of information available to meet various needs in the medical practice, even though the efficacy and safety of the drug was confirmed in the development phase.
Through cooperation among relevant units, the Daiichi Sankyo Vietnam provided information relating to Pharmaceutical Products to healthcare professionals through medical journals, conference presentations, and proper use materials, the proper use of drugs is promoted with the aim of contributing to medical technology.
High-quality information is information created under compliance with laws and regulations which possesses medical and scientific value. Therefore, we check compliance with relevant laws, regulations and guidelines, as well as ethical and scientific aspects, when promoting pharmaceutical products.
