Ethics and Guidelines Training

Guidelines in Action - 2020

Virtual Event - more details will be available soon
Thursday 15 October 2020, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

A practical, exercise-based workshop helping you understand how the BHBIA Guidelines apply to your current projects and those you may need to run in the future

Coffee and Registration at 9.00am for a 9.30am start

Who is this workshop for? 

Anyone who wants to become more knowledgeable and confident about approaching compliance issues throughout the market research process 

  • Suitable for all healthcare market researchers, whether you work in a market research agency, pharma company or fieldwork organisation, and whether or not you have any specific compliance responsibilities; 
  • Previous attendees have also included people working in a pharma compliance or medical departments who are keen to deep dive specific legal and ethical issues that may arise in market research. 
The workshop will give you a chance to:
  • Go beyond the online training by looking at more complex scenarios and grey areas; 
  • Focus on pragmatic application of the BHBIA Legal and Ethical Guidelines and ABPI/BHBIA Guidelines for Adverse Event Reporting;
  • Take a break from your day job to engage with compliance, become more familiar with resources available to you and become more confident in what they mean for your organisation; 
  • Learn from our conveners and other delegates in candid discussions around issues they have faced in a range of different roles, either commissioning, designing or fielding market research; 
  • Get to grips with the impact of data protection legislation on the guidelines. 

We are very grateful to the organisations and individuals that give their time and expertise on a voluntary basis to run training courses on behalf of the BHBIA - in this case members of the BHBIA Ethics & Compliance Committee.
