SMi proudly presents the return of their 2nd annual Pre-Filled Syringes West Coast conference and exhibition to San Diego in June 2017. 

The prefilled syringes community is a dynamic and innovative one, and is of vital importance to modern medicine. The competitive nature of this industry has sparked great innovation as devices strive for higher quality, safety, and patient satisfaction. With many factors at play here to affect device success; regulatory compliance, manufacturing, safety assessment, formulation and incorporation of Human factors, navigating the pre-filled syringes industry presents complex challenges to success. 

Pre-filled syringes west coast will bring together industry leaders from pharmaceutical, biotech and solution providing companies, to address and overcome the challenges facing those working with pre-filled syringes. As the USA’s hub for pre-filled biotech companies, San Diego is the perfect platform for industry leaders to network and collaborate on the main issues facing this industry. 
 

This year’s event will provide attendees with the understanding and insight to bring success to their business and device strategy. The agenda will provide regulatory guidance, address common pitfalls to device development, and ways in which to overcome these. We will analyze and navigate the ecosystem of Human factors for pre-filled devices, and give in depth insights into the emerging trends for parenteral devices, including auto injectors, pens, pumps and smart devices.

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.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
