FB on PSP Enrolment Forms
How come patient support program enrolment forms do not require the indication / low-level fair balance? They usually link the drug to the therapeutic use in a "diagnosis" section.

Enrolling a patient in a support program means that the decision to prescribe the product has already been made (i.e. patient is on the drug). Additionally, given the type of information on the form (e.g., including dosing or monitoring info), the form is not considered promotional but rather administrative in nature. Given these two reasons, indication/FB is typically not required. However, should promotional messaging be added (in the context of an HCP completed PSP enrolment form), indication and fair balance would indeed be required. For a patient completed enrolment form, no promotional messages would be acceptable and therefore the form would be administrative.
