Always plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark. Richard C. Cushing

OVERVIEW:
Efficient capacity planning and resource allocation is becoming a hot topic for biopharmaceutical companies and Clinical Research Organizations (CRO) due to increasing pressure to reduce cost of drug development. It is critical for many clinical organizations to find a better approach to increase effectiveness in resource capacity planning in clinical process, especially for multiple clinical trials. ORBee Consulting developed a powerful tool which allows users to optimize resource capacity planning, allocate resources (both manpower and budget) optimally between planned and ongoing clinical trials. Our technique saves money (up to 30%) by uncovering better resource allocation solutions.
During the workshop multiple questions will be addressed:
  • How to find optimal resource supply and demand balance
  • How to identify resource bottleneck
  • How to reallocate resources due to prioritization or cancellation of clinical trials
  • How to allocate resources between ongoing and planned trialsHow to make effective outsourcing decisions
  • How to find best possible alignment between corporate goals and available resources;
By attending the workshop, participants will learn how to apply powerful optimization technology for resource allocation and capacity planning for clinical trials portfolio.The workshop agenda will include both methodology and interactive case study.

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.
