SMi's premier 11th Annual Parallel Trade for Pharma returns to London on 6-7 Feb 2017 after 10 successful years in the running!

According to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, parallel trade was estimated to amount to € 5,589 million (value at ex–factory prices) in 2014. The fragmentation of the EU pharmaceutical market has resulted in a lucrative year for parallel trade.  Factors such as foreign exchange fluctuations and  legal battles on trademarks and counterfeit medicines are continuously shifting the European market dynamics.

With Brexit and the new EU Falsified Medicine Directive, what does the future hold for parallel trade? This event will discuss short term versus long term concerns of pharma manufacturers, regulators, as well as parallel traders. They will engage in an interactive debate and discuss how to keep abreast of the current trends and how to overcome all challenges. Discussion topics include:

  • Parallel Trade 101 - Which factors determine the flow of pharmaceutical products in Europe?
  • The European Commission’s Falsified Medicines Directive – recent updates
  • Panel Debate – In the spotlight: Shortages
  • The Patient’s perspective
  • Parallel traders panel – challenges and opportunities
  • Beyond pharmaceutical products – parallel imports of medical devices
  • Panel Debate - In the spotlight: Technology & new trends
  • Regional and country focus - Scandinavia, Germany, the UK, Central and  Eastern Europe, Turkey and Eurasia

This is the only industry meeting with 80+ selected senior leaders in parallel trade to discuss upcoming trends and share best practices. Join us today to keep abreast and stay ahead of competition!
 

This conference will enable you to:
•Update on parallel trade regulations to ensure compliance
•Recap on regional markets' parallel trade activities and outlooks
•Reassess and benchmark your supply chain and distribution model against peers' for best practice
•Understand the rationale and strategy of parallel distributors through case studies and panel discussions

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.
