Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC adheres to strict policies governing independent medical education grants to ensure the independence of supported activities. Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC does not exercise any direct or indirect influence over any aspect associated with supported independent educational grants. Company policies are based on guidelines set by government agencies (e.g., FDA, OIG), accrediting organizations (e.g., ACCME, AAFP, ANCC, ACPE), industry (e.g., PhRMA), and medical associations (e.g., AMA).
IMPORTANT UPDATE: In order for Janssen to comply with Federal Open Payments Program, grantees may be required to provide information to the company related to payments or other transfers of value provided to teaching hospitals and U.S. licensed physicians. Information must be submitted as part of the grant reconciliation process within the company’s Grant Management System.
IMPORTANT PROCESS CHANGE: Requests for funding in support of CME/CE, Non-CE, and Patient Education activities SHOULD NOT include the names of potential chairpersons, faculty and/or speakers. We do, however, continue to require a description of the credentials and/or experience required for the chairpersons, faculty and/or speakers for each activity.
