With ever increasing responsibilities and regulations to get to grips with, the role of the Medical Information function grows increasingly complex.

This course has been designed to meet the needs of people working within Medical Information, either as relatively new starters or as departmental administrators, and those working in related functions who would benefit from foundational knowledge of Medical Information practices, e.g. Pharmacovigilance, Quality, Regulatory Affairs, Sales and Marketing, Legal and Commercial. It provides the ideal opportunity to consolidate existing knowledge and get a complete overview of Medical Information.

 Structured sessions will put the role into context, looking at:

  • Background to Medical Information and Terminology
  • Overview of the ABPI Code of Practice and Copyright in practice
  • Audit or Inspection
  • Handling simple enquiries including use of the SmPC
  • Identifying Adverse Events and Product Complaints in Telephone
  • Conversations, Emails & Website Correspondence
  • Adding value to your department and organisation

Interactive exercises on the ABPI code of practice, handling enquiries and adding value will give you an opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice.  Throughout the day there will be plenty of opportunities to discuss issues of concern and to share best practice.

 Target audience:

New starters in Medical Information including departmental administrators.

Those working in related functions who would benefit from foundational knowledge of Medical Information practices.


Time: 1 day face to face course


Level of difficulty: Basic / introductory
