Ethics and Guidelines Training

Guidelines in Action - 2020

Virtual Event - via Zoom
Thursday 15 October 2020, 9:30 AM - 4:00 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

Exact programme and timings will be confirmed nearer the time but essentially we are converting the highly successful one-day event into a virtual format. Use of Zoom technology will allow us to run small breakout workshops so that delegates can experience the same learning benefits without having to travel!

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.
