Build confidence and critical skills to successfully negotiate the price of medicines in Ireland (Negotiation Skills Audit link below )
47% and 95% of new medicines in Ireland post Rapid Review and HTA require price negotiations to secure market access. You will learn from industry experts in price negotiations (Sandra Redmond and Claire Blaney) and an expert in negotiations and conflict resolution (Richard Savage) on how to successfully navigate this crucial phase of the Irish Reimbursement Process.
We are offering a unique opportunity to assess your negotiation skills by completing a 15 minute online questionnaire. Savage Macbeth’s audit survey will aggregate all participant’s data and produce an exclusive report on your competencies, attitude to and confidence in negotiations – this will provide valuable insight shared on the workshop into the skills required to help participants be better negotiators. The data will be 100% anonymous but those that share their contact details and attend will get a free copy of the report after the conference. Please complete the survey 48 hours prior to the event.
