ABPI Code of Practice

The ABPI Code of Practice is a critical document to understand if you work in or support the pharmaceutical industry.

The 29 clauses are packed with details and facts, but our courses make the Code come alive. We'll use case examples, discussions and quizzes to help you understand the practical implementation of the Code.

In-house Code of Practice training

We train a wide range of people every year, typically pharmaceutical companies, MedComms and PR agencies.  We can come to your offices and provide basic, advanced or refresher training.

These courses don’t have a set agenda.  Just tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll create a great, interactive programme for you.

We like to be super-flexible.  So we can do an hour, a half-day, a day or more. Or we can repeat sessions on different days to help with office cover. We love working with smaller teams, but are equally happy to run company-wide sessions.

Sessions can also cover the EFPIA Code of Practice and key differences between the key European Promotional Codes.


Open courses

We also run regular one and two-day Practical ABPI Code of Practice training sessions in London, which cover all aspects of the Code.


And finally if you want an update

We can either run in-house update sessions covering changes to the Code and Code cases from the last year.  Or subscribe to our popular Code up to date webinars which summarise all the ABPI Code cases published by the PMCPA.


See me in action

I recorded three 15 minute sessions for MedComms Network in March 2017, two of which gave tips for medical writers about the Code of Practice.  I had to stay behind the podium to stay on camera (not my usual style), but they give a great idea of my presenting ability.
