ABPI Code of Practice refresher

We offer a variety of live and recorded/eLearning ABPI Code of Practice training courses to make the Code come alive. This, of course, includes refresher sessions.

ABPI Code of Practice refresher sessions

We train on the Code at every level from an introduction to an expert final signatory level and so there are no surprises that we do refresher Code of Practice sessions as well.

We suggest an annual Code refresh.  Even though there might not be a new edition of the Code, there are plenty of alleged breaches of the Code every year which changes the interpretation of the Code.

We offer three types of refresher courses.

  • Open refresher session.
  • Bespoke sessions for teams, with a tailored bespoke agenda to meet your needs.
  • Monthly Code case updates.

Open refresher session

A 3-hour online refresher on zoom for people who are already experienced in the Code.  We’ll skip the basics (as you’ll know that already) and dive straight in to cover the latest Code news and key cases from the last 12 months.

We run this course every couple of months.  The live zoom sessions are running next on 23rd Jan 2024, 19th Mar 2024, 15th May 2024, 10th July 2024 and 5th Sept 2024 at 2pm – 5pm (UK time).  The sessions are not recorded.

The live session will focus on the big Code topics – principles, promotion v non-promotion, meetings and events, using clinical data and digital (websites and social media).  But we’ll also give you some pre-recorded videos giving a reminder on the importance of the Code just in case you need them.  There is a key points handout, course assessment and certificate.

The cost is £375 + VAT per person.  If you’re part of a team needing refresher training it is also available as part of our pick and mix discounted team training.  Get in touch for more details.

You can buy the refresher course through our eLearning website.


Bespoke team sessions

You can have your own team or company update session.  You decide the topics or pick the cases and we’ll give a tailored update.


Code case update sessions

If you’re wanting a continual update on the Code, explore our Code case update webinars.

Our Code case update membership gives monthly updates covering all the latest cases through a 60 minute webinar.  We’ll read the cases and pull out the key learning points for you, so that you’re completely up to date.

“Jayne was fantastic. The interactive session was really informative and engaging. Great way to refresh ABPI knowledge. Thanks!”

“A wonderful interactive course. Jayne did a fantastic job in the live session. Was full of enthusiasm and kept us engaged for the entire time. I will be using this platform again with my team and recommending to other agencies.”

“Fantastic course with a really intuitive format, exceptional content and great delivery.”

“I wanted to drop you a note to send a massive thank you for the training session yesterday.  It has been years since I’ve attended any training that I felt was interesting, relevant, appropriate, and helpful in a practical way, and yesterday was all of that and more.  I really appreciated the up-to-date cases and examples, and your clear and supportive responses to our specific questions.  I’ve also spoken to my team this morning and asked them to ensure they are on your next live session.”

“Very clear and engaging – the use of lots of case studies made it much more interesting than just listing all the rules!”
