One would suggest that the biggest challenge to all modern day QPs is to keep up to date with the constant evolving regulatory landscape whilst keeping afloat with day to day business.
In 2013 I attended the 13th Joint QP symposium organised by The Royal Pharmaceutical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Biology. It was particularly reassuring to hear colleagues and QPs from various industries and backgrounds sharing similar challenges that I faced in my area of interest. Beyond sharing challenges, they also shared their approaches in dealing with these challenges. The panel question session provided opportunity for the attendees to interact with the speakers via posting questions. There were many learning points that I noted from the panel question session.
