FPM On Demand – Annual Symposium 2021 – Available until 9 March

Wednesday 9 March 2022

Trials and Tribulations

Shaping a Bright New Future for Pharmaceutical Medicine

FPM Annual Symposium 2021 is available on demand!

This landmark two-day virtual conference from November 2021 is now available on demand for a limited time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put us all on an extraordinary learning curve. Following a period of adaptation, agility and growth, pharmaceutical medicine is in the public spotlight now more than ever before. Terms like ‘R rates’, ‘epidemiology’ and ‘clinical trials’, have entered the public lexicon. The UK Chief Medical and Scientific Officers are now bona fide celebrities. The way we have communicated has had to develop to respond to immediate public concerns and we have learnt the utmost importance of considered, open and honest dialogue.

AI and digital health technologies are augmenting and driving pharmaceutical innovations and the ways in which we conduct clinical trials. We have discovered the power and challenges of international and cross-sector scientific collaboration, and the benefits of fast and flexible regulatory strategies to bring medicines at pace and scale to patients.

The themes of this on-demand event are:

  • AI and digital health,
  • clinical trials adaptations and innovations,
  • health policy,
  • and communication with patients and the public.

What will you get for your fee?

  • Several hours of CPD-eligible content
  • Access to all the plenaries including those from Dr Stephen Lockhart and Dr Özlem Türeci, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, and Dr June Raine
  • Access to all six breakout sessions from the event

This on-demand event will be available to buy until 9 March 2022, after which the sessions will be available only to paying delegates and people who purchase this package.
