SMi Group’s Parallel Trade conference returns to London for its 12th year on 6th-7th Feb 2018
 

Over the years, the European Single market has allowed for pharmaceuticals to be imported and exported freely between member states without the permission of the manufacturers. However, with the arrival of Brexit and guidelines to immanently enforce the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) by 2019, the market for pharmaceutical parallel trade is changing.


Join us as we discuss the latest changes to regulation, their implementation and major court cases in intellectual property influencing distribution practices. We will also be exploring the safety of patients in relation to the surge in pharmaceutical E-commerce and ways in which currency fluctuations are likely to disrupt the flow of drugs to certain countries in the EU and beyond.
 

This event will discuss short term versus long term concerns of pharmaceutical manufacturers, regulators, parallel traders and patient associations. Some of the topics we will be looking at include:

• Strategies in place to protect the public from illegal counterfeit drugs online
• Current anti- trust investigations and the impact this could have on pharmaceutical parallel trade
• Forecast of currency fluctuations across the Single market and the affect this might have on drug shortages, drug prices and patient accessibility
• Case studies from parallel traders in Germany, UK and Sweden
• Debate on the effect of parallel trading on investment into research and development investment from originator companies

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
