ABPI Code of Practice training

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 facts, but our courses make the Code come alive using examples, discussions and quizzes to help you understand the practical implementation of the Code.

What type of ABPI Code of Practice training are you looking for?


Introduction

Our 3-hour self-guided eLearning course gives a great introduction to the governance, principles and key clauses in the ABPI Code of Practice.  Read more about this course on our ABPI Code of Practice eLearning course page or visit our dedicated eLearning website.


In-depth/advance

If you want to really understand the Code, the supporting advice documents and discuss and debate case examples, try our 2-day in-depth course.  Delegates are often aspiring final signatories or those who are going to be creating or reviewing materials.  At the moment we’ve switched this face to face course into a series of 5 x 2hr live online sessions.  Some Code knowledge is preferred in this course. £1,550 + VAT

Check the next course dates and book on our events page.


Team training

If you are a group looking for training, we run bespoke team sessions on the ABPI and EFPIA Codes of Practice.  These could be topic specific or annual refresher sessions – you choose.  Typical clients are pharmaceutical companies, agencies, MedComms and PR agencies. We are running these as live online sessions at the moment.  Contact us to discuss your needs and obtain a bespoke quote.


Monthly Code case updates

The PMCPA publish 120+ alleged Code breaches each year which set precedence for all future materials and activities.  It is critical that you read these cases and implement any learning points.  Our popular Code case update webinars summarise all the cases – saving you hours of reading – plus you can discuss Code issues to see how other companies are tackling certain situations.

The webinars run every month and include a 10-minute monthly highlights video.  Access to these sessions is through an annual subscription.


2021 ABPI Code of Practice implementation

We have various 2021 Code training courses and support options to help you implement the new Code.


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.  Watch them on the free training page.
