Session Description
Pharmaceutical originated medical education grants are awarded to support high quality, independent education programs – at a local, regional or international level – with the aim of improving patient health outcomes.However,not only do standards and delivery methods of CPD differ across countries, successful grant activities are also expected to be compliant with certain guidelines and regulations that are usually US centric.

We will describe our experience and outcomes in implementing an independent, US-grant-sponsored IPE CPD activity in a country wherein such an approach had not been previously done. Participants of this session will be asked to provide suggestions on how to create collaborative partnerships with non US based organisations to successfully advance the possibility of grant support and outcomes achievement.

This session aims to facilitate discussions on the challenges, weigh up the value and identify the solutions to implementing a truly independent CPD in regions outside the US while considering the real challenges faced by providers with regard to the learner's expectations, logistics and costs.
