SAE Media Group’s 7th Annual Conference
Pre-Filled Syringes West Coast
June 12 - 13, 2023 | San Diego, CA, USA
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SAE Media Group’s 7th Annual Pre-Filled Syringes West Coast Conference will be back for 2023 in San Diego to bring together the device developers, innovative biotech and big pharma. This year’s conference will explore the exciting advances in the combination product drug delivery space and a future outlook exploring how pharma, device developers and regulators can work together to encourage innovation.


With the injectable drug delivery industry rapidly advancing year-to-year, administration using pre-filled syringes, auto-injectors, and pen-injectors are increasingly common. Innovations in device technology, such as connected devices are leading the way in device design in addition to injectable delivery devices for novel and large volume drugs. With the need for self-administration growing, there is an enhanced demand for on-body injectors and digitalised health as well as patient centricity. We are beginning to see environmental sustainability being incorporated into aspects of device lifecycle from design to manufacturing and the use of the device. This year’s conference looks to address these hot topics through case studies and industry insights.


As part of SAE’s leading injectable drug delivery conferences this is a must attend event; not only will the conference bring you key insights to enhance your drug device portfolio, but it will also give you the opportunity to network with key industry players. We hope to welcome you in June 2023!

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
