Preparing a Paediatric Investigation Plan

Join industry professionals at SMi's CPD accredited Masterclass; Preparing a Paediatric Investigation Plan. For further information and the opportunity to register your place, please visit the website.

PRLog - March 28, 2011 - The European Commission proposed the implementation of Paediatric Investigation Plans (PIPs) to help ensure that treatments for children are included in the mainstream drug development process in Europe, rather than as an elective extra. SMi Group provides a CPD accredited Masterclass which aims to address the problems encountered during the creation of a PIP, as well as examining ways to overcome common challenges faced.

This event covers an extensive range of topics and provides a comprehensive survey and in-depth analysis of the difficulties surrounding PIP formation e.g. how PIPs are changing the paediatric trial landscape, how to learn from past successes and failures of PIPs, and ethical challenges faced during the creation of a Paediatric Investigation Plan.

Developing a successful PIP is all the more important since it is now mandatory for pharmaceutical firms to lodge a Paediatric Investigation Plan to the Paediatric Committee (PDCO), meaning that failed submissions wastes time, money (which denies a return of investment), and prevents beneficial treatments from reaching ill children who need it the most.  

The course is headed by Jane Lamprill, an expert with 17 years of experience in the field of paediatrics; she has managed both pharmaceutical and academic paediatric clinical trials. Furthermore, she is also a specialist medical writer and a published children's author. Her expertise in writing age-appropriate information for children and their parents has assisted many companies over the years and is sensitive to the needs of families while testing medicines for children. In addition to a global outlook, her information sheets have been translated into many languages for paediatric clinical trials around the world.
