SMi Group is proud to present the Pre-Filled Syringes and Injectable Drug Devices Workshop Day...

Combination Product Development – a roadmap for success

As more and more drug products are being developed as combination products, device development plays a critical role. To successfully develop a combination product, it requires collaboration and consideration from multiple angels.

In this workshop we will dive into each of these factors from primary container and device selection to how to manufacturing considerations and ways to platform and streamline development activities without running into regulatory risks. Some of the areas we will explore include
- Drug product and primary container interaction and impact on device selection and development
- How to select the right device and utilizing design control and strategic approaches to minimize development risks and timeline.
- Design verification, biocompatibility, extractable and leachables
- Packaging and manufacturing consideration.
- Stability and controls strategy
 

 

Drug Delivery Device Testing Solutions

 In the drug delivery device, testing world, the regulatory requirements add complexity to the simplest of test. What occurs when the testing moves from the simple to multifaceted is an exponential amount of effort to meet industry demands. Finding the best partner starts with a full understanding of your internal and external requirements. Uncovering the unknowns is an arduous task but a crucial one to your success.

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.
