Organizations Eligible to Receive Grants and Process Overview
Pfizer is committed to supporting healthcare quality improvement initiatives, continuing professional development and other independent education activities, including CME/CE, that are most likely to improve patient health, and believe that the likelihood of improving patient health increases when education is integrated with quality. We believe commercial support should be aligned with the literature on effective continuing education for health professionals, and the highest level of standards endorsed by the medical community such as those found in the 2006 ACCME criteria.
Patients are best served when commercial support is provided to those organizations that are engaged in patient care or represent those who deliver patient care. These organizations are in the best position to achieve the highest recognized standards of quality in the medical profession today.
We continue to support proposals that include services from other stakeholder groups as we believe many of these organizations provide a valuable and often essential supportive role that is valued by the medical profession.
Types of organizations eligible to apply for grants include hospitals, academic medical centers, schools of nursing or pharmacy, professional societies and associations, and other institutions specializing in specific healthcare-related disciplines (e.g., public health, quality improvement).
