SMi Group announces the return of its 4th annual Lyophilization USA Conference in New Jersey on the 15th- 16th November 2018.

16% of the top 100 pharmaceutical drugs and 35% of biologic drugs are lyophilized. With more than 30 percent of the FDA-approved parenterals lyophilized and soon more than half injectable drugs to require lyophilization there is ample room for standardization and expansion of the lyophilization process in pharmaceuticals.


However, lyophilization is one of the most time consuming and expensive unit operations. There are many issues within lyopilization which need addressing, and improved drying technologies are needed for current and future products.


Join us this November 2018, as we look toward the future of lyophilization. Network with industry experts, discuss regulatory challenges and unmet needs within lyophilization, gain insights into innovative technologies and strategies to overcome these challenges, discover new methods of scale-up and technology transfer, and explore alternative processes beyond conventional lyophilization.
 

Developing on last years’ success, this must-attend conference will bring together industry experts to discuss and analyze the latest advancements and challenges within lyophilization. Some notable areas of interest have been new technologies and developments within lyophilization, challenges and unmet needs in lyophilization, regulatory challenges and validation of lyophilized products, scale-up and transfer and alternatives beyond conventional lyophilization methods.

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
