CME-accredited Webinar: Interchangeable Biosimilars - European Medical Journal

CME-accredited Webinar: Interchangeable Biosimilars


Interchangeable Biosimilars

Join our panel of experts in the field of biologics for this CME-accredited webinar where they provide up-to-date knowledge of the current regulatory environment on the interchangeability of biosimilars, with reflections on the clinical attributes, and a critical evaluation of the current use of biosimilars.

This educational activity is free of charge.

Learning Objectives:

The aim of this activity is for learners to better understand the recent position of biosimilar interchangeability from the perspectives of the European and USA regulatory environments and to provide learners with a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory perspectives, enabling learners to navigate and contribute to clinical practices and decision-making in this evolving field.

Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:

  • Define and explain biosimilar concepts including, but not limited to: interchangeability, extrapolation, and switching.
  • Explain the current regulatory environment (EMA/HMA/FDA) of biosimilar use and position statements on interchangeability.
  • Evaluate and implement practical approaches for the use of biosimilars in the context of interchangeability with reference products.
    • Considering clinical efficacy, safety, health economics, real-world evidence.
  • Demonstrate the ability to educate patients including anticipating and addressing potential patient perceptions and concerns.
