overview

The clinical trial logistics world is accelerating rapidly with trials now occurring in more than 13 strategic and emerging markets with eyes on the improvement of global health and patient care. The demand for clinical trial supply and logistics has gone global with increased outsourcing, with a predicted forecast of $14.3bn by 2017. The market demand has impacted supply chain management and our aim at the SMi Group is to provide a conference that will enable key opinion leaders to discuss, assess and analyse supply chain security, temperature monitoring and reflect on the globalisation of clinical trial logistics.

 

• BUILD AND ENHANCE your understanding of integrating temperature tracking at the site, analysing how data is coming into the system, reviewing temperature monitoring of shipments, electronic labels available to use and assess how to cut costs in clinical trial supply logistics with our INTERACTIVE ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS
• GAIN insights from our KOLs on how to maintain an efficient supply chain and hear CASE STUDIES from leading pharmaceutical companies and CROs on planning and forecasting for clinical trials – working together to build a robust partnership
• DEVELOP an understanding of the regulatory, GCP & GMP requirements to control the qualification and validation of products through their life cycle
• ASSESS the globalisation of clinical trial logistics to optimise costs and develop a robust supply chain with an interactive round table discussion
• BUILD and enhance partnerships in supporting clinical trials to meet stimulated demand

    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.
