Ethics and Guidelines Training

Legal and Ethical Guidelines

Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London WC1H 9BD
Thursday 17 October 2019, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Coffee and Registration at 9.00am for a 9.30am start

A second chance too attend this essential training, previously run on the 24th April, to increase your practical understanding of both the BHBIA’s Legal and Ethical Guidelines for Healthcare Market Research and the ABPI/BHBIA Guidelines for Adverse Event Reporting, through a highly interactive, case-study based approach that follows the course of a market research study.. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, offering the opportunity to learn from others’ issues and experiences. The course is continually revised and updated to incorporate the latest issues and changes in guidance.

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.

If you would like to attend but can't make this date, we'll be running the course again on 17th October - look out for details nearer the time, meanwhile please save the date.
