The Code in a Day: a guided tour of the ABPI Code of Practice

Tuesday 5 October 2021

Join us on a guided tour of the ABPI Code of Practice

This introductory level workshop will take you on a scenic journey through the entire ABPI Code in a single day. Your tour leader, Code expert trainer Sharon McCullough, is on hand throughout to show you the sights and help you navigate the terrain.

This virtual tour will be held on Zoom, with regular breaks throughout the day, a 1 hour lunch stop, and opportunities to explore individually and in small groups.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone needing an introduction to the Code
  • Physicians new to medical affairs
  • Company staff working with the Code
  • Anyone who wants a basic Code refresher


If you attend this course you can use it as CPD for your appraisal. To do so you’ll need to provide:

  • evidence (certificate of attendance), and
  • reflection, specifically a couple of paragraphs on what you learnt, what effect it will have on your current practice and how it relates to Good Medical Practice.

Upload these into your portfolio and self-allocate your CPD points at 0.25 credits per 15 mins.
