The SMi Group are thrilled to present the 9th annual conference on Biosimilars & Biobetters, taking place on 26th & 27th September in Central London, UK. Following the success of our previous events in both London and Boston, Biosimilars and Biobetters UK 2018 will deliver a stellar speaker line-up and bring together a global audience of biosimilar experts to discuss the latest developments and future of the rapidly evolving and expanding biosimilars market.

After over a decade, the biosimilars industry is finally reaching a stage where key stakeholders understand and accept biosimilars. This is reflected in more tolerant legislation and an increased uptake of biosimilars across the globe.

We are now entering a very exciting time, for over the next few years several originator patents are expiring, and we will see a new wave of biosimilars enter the market. Will the originator dominate or will the biosimilar be a successful contender and spark a competitive environment? Have we done enough to convince the payer, prescriber and patient to switch?

Join us to hear experiences of key opinion leaders and evaluate market access, opportunities and commercialisation strategies with industry-thought experts.

*We are now accepting presentation abstracts for consideration*
To discuss speaking opportunities, please contact Emily Peacock, E: EPeacock@smi-online.co.uk, T: +44 207 827 6032

The 9th Annual Biosimilars and Biobetters Conference will cover the hottest topics in the biosimilars industry, from the next wave biosimilars entering the market, to experience from KOL’s with marketed biosimilars, to developing and commercialising biosimilars for vaccines, enzymes and different therapeutic areas.

Join us this September to hear from and network with our stellar speaker line-up that will bring you interesting presentations and topical case studies.

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
