BHBIA Guidelines in Action - 2022

Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London WC1H 9BD
Thursday 13 October 2022, 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.

Speaker details

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 highly experienced members of the BHBIA Ethics & Compliance Committee working in pharma, MR agency and fieldwork roles: Alison Carr - Hamell, Rebecca D'Ippolito - Sermo and Claudia Wing - Janssen. 

In 2020 our trainers won The Julie Stacey Award based on delegate feedback from this workshop and we're delighted to have secured the same team to run this year's event. You can also read a review of the 2021 workshop here - this was run by the same winning team. (Note that the 2021 event was a virtual half-day whereas we plan to return to the full-day face-to-face format in 2022).
