FDA issues two draft guidances on Social Media

FDA issues two draft guidances on Social Media | Piet Kommers | Scoop.it

Two NEW FDA DRAFT Guidances On the Use of Social Media and Online Promotions of Devices and Drugs

After five years in the making, the FDA is on a roll. Following the publication of the previous draft guidance on the use of social media for “post-marketing submissions for post marketing submissions of interactive promotional media“, the agency has published two new guidances of conduct of medical device and pharma companies in social media.

The first seems easier to understand and implement than the second.

Draft Guidance I: Correcting independent third-party misinformation about prescription drugs and medical devices

Imagine the following: You work as a sales representative in a medical device company. It has come to your attention that a blogger wrote a post that contains inaccurate information about your medical device. On the same day, you learn of a patient that has shared personal experiences with your device on a forum and misinformed other patients about the device’s use. You believe that the way that both these stories are represented may be harmful to the public health. You start typing away at your answer, informing the blogger and forum members of their mistakes. FDA guidance suggests that you should stop first and ask yourself: is it worth your while?

The FDA maintains that you have no obligation to correct any information published by a third party who is not under the firm’s control or influence. This is regardless of whether the firm owns or operates the platform on which the communication appears.

The FDA leaves this to the discretion of the pharma company or medical devices company. If the company chooses to engage in the correction of misinformation, it needs to adhere to certain approaches outlined in the guidance – for instance it cannot only correct negative misinformation written about the medical device while ignoring an overstatement of the benefits of the product.

Download complete draft FDA social media guidance on Correcting Independent Third-Party Misinformation about Prescription Drugs and Medical Devices.

Draft Guidance II: Internet/social media platforms with character space limitations

This FDA draft guidance is more comprehensive than the first and seems more complicated to execute. The guidance describes the FDA’s current thinking about how medical devices and drug manufacturers and marketers should present benefit and risk information of promotional materials in channels that have “character space limitations” (mainly Twitter, and “sponsored links” on search engines such as Google). The guidance does not include platforms such as Facebook and YouTube where there are no space limitations.

The main takeaway: Risk information must appear alongside risk information. Both must be presented in the same message. The FDA clearly states that having risk information on only a Twitter cover photo is insufficient and that main risk information should be included in the short message as well. If a medical company concludes that adequate benefit and risk information, as well as other required information, cannot all be communicated within the same character-space-limited communication, then the firm should reconsider using that platform for the intended promotional message. To many companies, this will be the case. To make matters more complicated, a link should be should be supplied that brings visitors to a page that is solely dedicated to risk information.

The guidance on how promotional materials should be prepared and presented goes on at length in its recommendation – using the example of a fictional drug they call NoFocus (And some people say that the FDA has no humor….).

The use of so many examples shows how complex this field is and the extent to which the FDA does not have a clear grasp of the way it should be managed.

UNESCO is currently investigating how access to text can be improved through the use of technology, specifically basic mobile phones. Today mobile phones are common in areas where books are scarce. The United Nations estimates that 6 billion people have access to a connected mobile device of some sort, while only 4.5 billion have access to a toilet.

Start children's learning early at home.  Give them fantastic learning tools.  Select geology and earth sciences, astronomy, educational science, physics, astronomy, mathematics play resources.

 

Children can learn to summarise arguments; abstract nouns; persuasive letter writing; role-play and movement; identifying grammar structures; Comprehension.  Hundreds of  teaching resources to inspire and motivate. Inquiry based learning lets your child take a lead role in his or her own education, increasing their desire to learn and retain information.

Project PLUS-MED: Building a Participatory PLatform for Planning the FUture of Smart Cities in the MEDiterranean | Piet Kommers | Scoop.it

RESEARCH PROPOSAL BY

Anastasia Stratigea, Associate Professor - NTUA, Dept. of Geography and Regional Planning, School of Rural and Surveying Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).

 

The goal of the PLUS-MED project is the development of a collaborative ICTs-enabled planning framework for guiding participatory policy making,
that aims at the sustainable future development of the urban context, i.e. setting policy priorities as to the socially and economically desirable ICTs applications that can better serve future urban development objectives and citizens’ needs.

 

The proposed framework will integrate a range of planning approaches as well as tools and enabling technologies that can support participatory-oriented city- and citizen-specific urban planning studies, capable of dealing with sustainability challenges that are faced by cities nowadays. Emphasis will be placed on the application of the above framework in specific case studies in cities around the Mediterranean. In these specific case studies, a digital platform will be developed, which, by integrating tools and enabling technologies as well as planning tools and approaches supporting participatory planning, will deal with the sustainable future development of the cities, in the light of the climate change impacts and the need for setting policy priorities serving mitigation and adaptation purposes. In this respect, participatory-oriented alternative ‘smart city futures’ (scenarios) will be structured and evaluated, and policies will be prioritized, coping with sustainable development aspects and climate change impacts in the specific city environment.

Interaction in Massive Courses, J.UCS Special Issue

Traditional lectures, especially when given to large audiences, are characterized by a prevalent passivity of students as well as reduced interactions between the lecturer and the audience. For some years, research has been devoted to exploring how new media can be harnessed to support and promote collaborative activities in large learning groups. … investigation of the capabilities of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) led to the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) capable of providing several ten thousands of learners with access to courses over the web. … The Special Issue aimed to gather research works in the field of massive courses with a special focus on enhancing interaction between lecturers-students or students-student in face-to-face situations or completely online by using different kind of technologies …

The introduction, from which the above words are a brief excerpt only, is followed by four papers (to one of which I contributed myself, I hasten to add; and while I am at it, I should also confess I was a member of the programme committee). They cover a variety of topics ranging from a conceptual framework for designing MOOCs, via awareness tools and a question-driven audience response system to an automated service for team formation for collaborative online learning. The collection is useful and interesting, it also belies that much that goes under the umbrella of MOOC research could just as easily have been labeled TEL research. But never mind, if this is the way to alert broader audiences to TEL research in general or technology-enhanced networked learning research more in particular, then so be it. @pbsloep
