  • the liability of Health Care Professionals (HCPs) “playing out of position” during COVID-19
  • the risks for non-Life Sciences manufacturers entering the Life Sciences space
  • the “search for a scape goat” – an easy hunting expedition?
  • a double track system in Italy and comparative perspectives
  • practical advice to companies to minimise risk
  • off-label use and relevant considerations
