Comments:   comments  Print Friendly Version  |   Share this item
NCMB outlined its expectations for licensees who may wish to consider or recommend new and innovative treatments for patients in a new position statement entitled, Licensee use of new or innovative treatment. Some key principles include:

* Avoiding overpromising or exaggerating benefits of the treatment;
* Balancing the need to honor patient autonomy against the need to protect patients from risks of novel treatments;
* Ensuring that treatment decisions are always made in the best interest of patients.

NCMB is grateful to all who provided feedback during the development of the new position statement.
