Funded initiatives

We will share details on all GSK funded independent medical education grants in Canada as part of our ongoing commitment to transparency.

In 2016, a total of $373,000 was provided as part of the Spring and Fall funding rounds. This funding was used to support five independent medical education programs. These programs included:

  • The Canadian Public Health Association, Symposium on Examining Vaccination Against Serogroup B Meningococcal Disease (MenB), given at the Canadian Immunization Conference
  • Laval University Chair in Knowledge Transfer, Education and Prevention in Respiratory and Cardiovascular Health, Training on the Therapeutic Education of Patients with COPD
  • Queen's University, Preventing Meningococcal Disease – A Primer for Primary Care Physicians
  • Queen's University, Childhood Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) Vaccination in Canada: Debunking the Myths and Misconceptions through Counselling on Vaccine Efficacy and Safety
  • RESPIPLUS, Optimizing Your Practice with COPD Patients

Summaries of the independent medical education initiatives we fund in Canada each year will be posted upon completion of the selected activity.
