General information

Designing market research to support communication strategies: how to maximise success and avoid key compliance pitfalls

**New Webinar Shared Experience – Participate From Your Desk**
This is the first in a new series of Webinar Shared Experience events which will complement our existing face-to-face meetings programme.  
This webinar will give you an appreciation of the range of methods, tools and techniques that come under the umbrella of ‘market research’. We will explain what defines market research and differentiates it from other marketing activities, with a particular focus on the importance of complying with the ABPI Code of Practice and other essential guidance and legislation, when conducting market research with healthcare professionals and patients. We’ll take a look at some of the challenges, and we’ll explore when it may be most appropriate to use market research to address important questions for pharma clients, with some specific examples that are particularly relevant to healthcare communications.
