Drug Information Update - FDA holds social media guidance webinar

FDA Division of Drug Information: Know the Moment It Happens

The Division of Drug Information (DDI) is CDER's focal point for public inquiries. We serve the public by providing information on human drug products and drug product regulation by FDA.


Technology is continually changing, but FDA’s commitment to public health does not. In today’s world, a tremendous amount of information exchange occurs on the web and through social media.  In 2014, FDA’s Office of Prescription Drug Promotion (OPDP) released three highly-anticipated draft guidances detailing FDA’s current views and recommendations on specific social media topics.

To further our communications with stakeholders, media and the public in this area, FDA will host a webinar and Q&A session on July 10, 2014, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. (EST).

The purpose of this webinar is to provide an introduction and overview of FDA’s three recently issued social media draft guidances: Fulfilling Regulatory Requirements for Postmarketing Submissions of Interactive Promotional Media for Prescription Human and Animal Drugs and Biologics, Internet/Social Media Platforms with Character Space Limitations— Presenting Risk and Benefit Information for Prescription Drugs and Medical Devices and Internet/Social Media Platforms: Correcting Independent Third-Party Misinformation About Prescription Drugs and Medical Devices.

Subject-matter experts will also be available to answer questions regarding the draft guidances and provide further explanation of key concepts; questions/comments can be submitted live via a Q/A chat window.
