At Covidien, we’re passionate about supporting doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to be as effective as they can be. Thus, Covidien is committed to supporting the training and education of healthcare professionals under the guidance of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and the Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) Code of Ethics. Through ongoing collaboration with these medical professionals and healthcare organisations, we identify educational needs and translate them into high-quality and fair-balanced product and non-product related educational programmes, activities and resources.
The Cure&Care initiative is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant from Covidien, AG. An educational grant is defined as a financial mechanism to support the advancement of medical education for healthcare professionals, patients or the public in areas important to Covidien. This educational grant is provided with the understanding that control over the selection of content, faculty, educational methods, materials and format are held solely by the third-party organiser of the educational event, activity or resources, in this case AXON Communications.
Covidien Respiratory & Monitoring Solutions (R&MS) is committed to meeting a need for high-quality, unbiased, non-promotional educational content in the fields of neonatal intensive care and perioperative medicine. By facilitating peer-to-peer education and encouraging best-practice sharing through the Cure&Care initiative, the hope is that Covidien R&MS will help to drive forward advancements in patient care that will improve patient safety and enhance healthcare delivery in this setting.
