Funding Independent Medical Education Grants

Funding Independent Medical Education Grants 1.8 is the eighth module of the 10-part Medical Affairs Product Launch Series. Based on primary research collected directly from executives leading top medical affairs teams, this module examines independent medical education grant activities, team budgets and staffing levels across product lifecycle stages. This module also contains profiles to provide a comprehensive depiction of all key indicators levels during the product lifecycle.  In developing this module, Cutting Edge Information’s analysts collected surveys from and consulted with a series of medical affairs leaders at several top pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies. 

Data reveal how teams adjust resource and activity levels throughout the product lifecycle to maximize the impact of IME programs. Additionally, this module profiles two company teams — one supporting a niche product and the other a common product — to provide a comprehensive depiction of all key indicator levels during the product lifecycle.

REPORT FEATURES:

Identify factors that influence independent medical education grant activity timelines: Generally, teams do not begin to focus on IME grants until late in the product lifecycle. However, not all teams adhere to this model. This module’s data break down activity start by product type – niche, common and blockbuster. Data show that product type can be a powerful predictor of team IME grant activity timelines.

REASONS TO BUY:

Benchmark independent medical education grant budget levels, staffing and funded events, by event type, throughout the product lifecycle: Independent medical education programs, including in-person and online events, are a key component to increasing treatment and disease awareness. Use this module’s resource benchmarks to successfully fund and implement an independent medical education grant launch strategy.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

Drug company employees involved in the following areas should consider purchasing this report:
– Medical affairs
– Medical education
– Scientific affairs
– Scientific programs
– CME grants funding

CHAPTER EXAMPLE:

Although the majority of surveyed teams begin IME grant activities during or after product launch year, some prefer to start earlier. Product type can play a major role in IME grant activity timelines. Figure 1.8.2 shows the cumulative percentage of surveyed teams that begin IME grant activities, by lifecycle stage and product type.
Surveyed teams supporting niche products begin activities earliest. Forty percent of surveyed niche product teams begin IME grant activities during Phase 3a, and by registration/launch, 60% begin activities. Since niche products are targeted to subsets of a specific therapeutic area with less well-known treatment options, teams may require earlier involvement in medical education funding to increase awareness of their products.
