Makara Health Launches Ethics and Compliance Training with Dr Nick Broughton
UK-based international healthcare communications and education agency Makara Health has today announced the launch of pharmaceutical ‘Ethics & Code Compliance’ Training as a division of their Learning and Development portfolio. Makara has formed a new alliance with well-respected Ethics and Compliance Trainer Dr Nick Broughton adding another arm to the agency’s unique training services.
Louise Sharp, Makara Health Founder and Managing Director, said: “At Makara Health, our learning and development programmes have a reputation for being thought provoking and a bit different. We focus on tapping into something deeper than just upskilling so that our learning can truly effect change – either to a situation or personal ability. Our new Ethics & Code Compliance division with Dr Nick Broughton fits entirely with this ethos.”
Dr Nick Broughton, Consultant in Pharmaceutical Ethics and Compliance, said: “I’m excited to be working with Makara Health to build and expand on the work I’ve done to date providing training and advice to multiple companies in the UK and internationally. I know from client feedback that what I offer is different and engaging, which is why I chose to work with Makara as it aligns to their way of thinking. Attendees to my courses often find themselves bemused by actually enjoying compliance training. I work hard to make my sessions fun and interactive rather than a case of learning the ABPI Code by rote. For me, good ethical compliance is about understanding the rules in the context of human behaviour to make sound decisions that are in the interests of patients and the business.”
From May, Makara Health and Dr Nick Broughton are offering a range of open courses throughout the year focusing on compliance with the ABPI and EFPIA Codes of Practice and aimed at a range of audiences from senior managers, to signatories, to those involved with producing promotional and other materials. A free taster session ‘Compliance culture and managing conflict’ is available to book now for those interested in experiencing a new approach to code compliance training. There is also a specific course for pharmaceutical physicians including a look at clinical research and drug safety and a course looking at the complex area of digital and social media in relation to code compliance.
Nick is also available to build bespoke in-house courses on ethical compliance based on specific company needs and these can be tailored to fit the requirements of specific job roles.
