85 - Could you please confirm for me whether or not a Dear Doctor letter outlining a Nursing Assessment program needs PAAB approval. The program is being run by a 3rd-party. The letter does not contain any information about product and it outlines the parameters of the program itself (i.e. # of patients needed to be recruited, length of day, etc.) The Dear Doctor letter is being left with the doctor and it is being delivered and signed by the representative.

  • This question is too vague for us to answer. We would need more details than this to give proper advice on its status regarding adverting law and the PAAB code. You can always call the PAAB for free verbal advice; the PAAB charges a fee for written opinions including e-mail.
