Relief for Doctors as the NMC holds off new ethics guidelines on conferences and prescriptions

25 Aug 2023 • The National Medical Commission (NMC) had recently issued guidelines regarding the professional conduct of doctors, including prescribing generic medicines, avoiding endorsements of products, and not organizing medical conferences sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. These guidelines were met with debates and discussions. However, following a representation from the Indian Medical Association (IMA), the government has decided to suspend the implementation of these guidelines. The guidelines have been put on hold with immediate effect, and the professional rules and regulations for doctors will now be guided by a set of guidelines from 2002, which these new rules had superseded. This essentially means that the recent changes in ethics and regulations for doctors are reversed to those established about 21 years ago. Source: The Wire | Read full story
