Ethical responsibility

Ethical responsibility

The ABPI Code of Practice for the Pharmaceutical Industry extends beyond the extensive laws and regulations which govern our industry to ensure that we work professionally, with integrity and respect for those we work with and for, and are transparent about that work and how we engage with others.

We wanted to understand how the Code is perceived and gather insight into potential areas for development, so in 2018 we commissioned an independent research organisation, Traverse, to carry out research into attitudes towards it.  Traverse surveyed the opinions of stakeholders from industry, royal colleges and healthcare organisations, healthcare professionals and patient organisations; a summary of that research is now available.
