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. We'll use case examples, discussions and quizzes to help you understand the practical implementation of the Code.

We are still working full-time and are now delivering all our courses online during COVID-19.

A 3 hour self-guided eLearning course giving a great introduction to the governance, principles and key clauses in the ABPI Code of Practice.  It’s ideal if you’re new to the industry/Code and want a clear and concise introduction. £275 + VAT

In-depth ABPI Code of Practice training

ABPI Code case updates every 2 months

The PMCPA continually receive alleged breaches of the Code.

The webinars run every two months.  Access to these sessions is through an annual subscription.

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.
