PIPA Forums

PIPA Forum Programme

The PIPA forum programme is designed to offer members the opportunity to meet to discuss, and share best practice around, topics of particular relevance to the fields of Pharmacovigilance and Medical Information, and associated functions.

PIPA forums are designed to be interactive and allow members to develop their knowledge and experience through sharing ideas with others working in corresponding roles in similar organisations, rather than being a formal training course.

We currently have one active forum: Code Compliance. However, if there is another forum you would like PIPA to offer, please contact anne.turnbull@pipaonline.org.

CompliMed PIPA Code Forums

Throughout the course of each year, PIPA holds a series of four Code forums to provide an opportunity for company representatives to meet on a regular basis to discuss issues related to the Code and other legislation regulating promotional/non-promotional activities. This is a joint venture between PIPA and CompliMed.

The Code Form group is chaired by Ros Henley (Managing Consultant, CompliMed) and meets quarterly to discuss Code compliance matters relevant to delegates' roles and responsibilities.  As an ex-member of the PMCPA Panel, Ros brings a wealth of experience and insight to this forum.

Typical agenda items will include:

  • Review of recent case rulings by the PMCPA and MHRA
  • Sharing of best practice and experience
  • Discussion/impact assessment of legislation which could have bearing on Code-related activities
  • Presentations by third party subject matter experts invited to attend
  • Compilation of questions to be posed to the PMCPA where relevant

CompliMed are responsible for the logistical management of the Code Forums, and meetings will take place at their Kings Langley offices. The dates for the 2019 Code Forums will be released shortly, along with the online booking form.
