FPM On Demand

Whether you missed one of our events first time around, or you want to relive a particular talk, FPM On Demand is an opportunity to catch-up on some of our past events.

Many of our FPM On Demand events are eligible for CPD. To use the learnings for your appraisal you’ll need to provide:

  • evidence (URL and/or proof of payment for paid content), 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.

FPM Annual Symposium 2023 On Demand

The 2023 FPM Annual Symposium – Navigating the future-scape of pharmaceutical medicine – addressed some of the biggest challenges and the most exciting opportunities facing global healthcare. As countries and healthcare systems around the world have been doing their best to recover from COVID-19, the lessons the pandemic taught are being infused into a new pioneering and collaborative spirit.

FPM Conversation

Plotting your pathway to excellence

This special online event supported pharmaceutical physicians in navigating their careers.

It was aimed at pharmaceutical physicians who are in the early-to-mid stage of their career and is especially useful for people who are considering:

  • subspecialisation,
  • advancing into a managerial position,
  • transitioning from a role inside ‘big pharma’ to working in a biotech, regulator or as an independent consultant, or
  • working (and living!) outside the UK.

The panel discussed how careers in the specialty may develop in the future and how you can ‘future-proof’ yourself and make the most of opportunities to come.

Exploring new frontiers in cellular therapies for cancer

This event brought together experts and innovators from industry and the NHS to discuss the latest scientific advances and challenges in the field of cell therapies for solid tumours and haematological malignancies.

CAR T-cell therapies have already become a reality for patients with haematological malignancies and have radically changed treatment paradigms and outlooks for these patients. More sophisticated and complex cellular therapies are in clinical development and hold promise for patients with a broader range of malignancies. This event will focus on how cellular products can be developed and delivered to patients in clinical trials and in routine practice within the NHS.

FPM Education Day 2022

FPM Education Day 2022 was all about Real World Evidence and its use in pharmaceutical medicine.

FPM Education Day is our annual event for pharmaceutical physicians and others working in the field of pharmaceutical medicine. Education Day gives in-depth, up to date insight on a developing topic, networking opportunities and professional development for aspiring and leading members of the pharmaceutical industry.

EDI in Focus: Yale School of Public Health

FPM hosted a webinar with Mayur M Desai (PhD, MPH) and Sten H Vermund (MD, PhD) from the Yale School of Public Health to talk about their experience in setting up and establishing EDI initiatives within their school, how these initiatives will help them to meet their ultimate goals (equity in health and education) and to give us some of their key insights and learnings from this journey. A recording of the webinar can be viewed for free below.

Black History Month series

The Black Heroes of Mathematics

Dr Nira Chamberlain looks at the Black Heroes of Mathematics.

The 2017 film, “Hidden Figures”, is based on the true story of a group of black female mathematicians that served as the brains behind calculating the momentous launch of the NASA astronaut John Glenn into orbit. However, these mathematicians of colour are not the only ‘Hidden Figures’.

Nira discusses other inspirational men and women who overcame obstacles to prove that ‘mathematics is truly for everybody!’

In his talk Nira begins with a discussion of probability and risk, give his tips on the different types of “probability” and how to explain risk to people without a scientific background. Valuable advice for anyone working in clinical trials!

From Yale to COVID-19 (a personal reflection)

Dr John Ndikum was joined by our Chief Executive Dr Marcia Philbin to talk about race, social justice and health care.

John talked about his journey into medicine, how his experiences as a black doctor have shaped him, and his reflections on working in the front line of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This talk touched on issues of race, ethics and values, in medicine generally and in light of COVID-19.

John finished by reading a beautiful poem that he composed especially for FPM, titled “Humanity in Calamity”.

FPM Public Health Emergencies webinar series

In mid-2020, FPM hosted a webinar series on: Good Pharmaceutical Medicine Practice: Preparedness Planning for Public Health Emergencies.

In the context of the central role played by medicines development during this COVID-19 pandemic, FPM’s Ethics & Practice Committee (EPC) developed a series of discussion webinars that focus on specific themes and challenges related to the science and ethics of pharmaceutical medicine during public health emergencies (PHEs). In these eight webinars, we engaged key global experts who have been involved in the COVID-19 pandemic response, coming from a variety of professions and sectors as well as from different geographical regions.

Lunch and Learn for PMST Educational Supervisors
