SAE Media Group's 3rd Annual Conference
Wearable Injectors and Connected Devices
10th-11th October, 2022 | London, UK

SAE Media Group’s 3rd annual Wearable Injectors and Connected Devices Conference will explore on-body device design and development whilst also engaging in the latest advances in connectivity and digital health applications for wearable devices with industry perspectives from big pharma representatives. The conference will consider key developments in the wearable injectors field, including the enhanced demand for on-body injectors and digitalised health as the need for at home self-administration and routes for delivery of time-dependent, high volume and viscous drugs grow.

The conference will also cover key regulatory updates such as guidance on MDR requirements from regulatory and notified bodies, and the importance of considering user-experience and developing patient-centric devices. The two-day conference will bring you high-quality insights and industry connections on the latest advances in wearable injectors and connectivity, and a platform for exchanging ideas.

 

 

 

  • Engage with key regulatory updates surrounding digital health and medical devices
  • Discover advances in device design and development for large volume delivery via on-body injectors
  • Explore the key drivers of the industry, including the growing development of highly viscous drugs accelerating the development of on-body injectors

    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, SAE Media 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.
