Dinner Meeting Title: New Draft PMPRB Guidelines – Impact on Drug Pricing in Canada
Description: Recent updates to the Patented Medicines Regulations, and the issuance of new Draft PMPRB Guidelines represent the biggest change to the regulation of Canadian drug prices in thirty years. The Regulations mandate consideration of health economics as a factor in determining the allowable price for new medicines, and mandate interaction between CADTH and PMPRB. The Senior Strategic Advisor of Pricing and Market Access from PDCI Market Access will provide an update on how the changes will impact new drugs, and the implications for the regulatory approval process.
