|China strengthens management of hospitals and treatments|
Chinese health authorities on Wednesday called for enhanced management of hospitals and treatment during a teleconference.
During the teleconference, the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC) prohibited medical institutions from outsourcing departments and publishing fake medical advertisements.
The NHFPC also called on medical agencies to strengthen management of the clinical use of medical techniques.
The use of techniques that are not allowed in clinical practice under Chinese regulations, including an immunotherapy treatment using cells generated by a patient's own immune system, should be limited to research, the NHFPC said.
Health authorities have been urged to enhance supervision and crack down on illegal medical practices in hospitals within their jurisdictions.
