The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) is hosting a free webinar titled “Biosimilars: Real World Considerations for Pharmacists” on Thursday, November 7, 2019, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Eastern time.

This Science & Innovation Theater Webinar is sponsored, developed and presented by Amgen. Continuing education credit is not available.

Speaker Leah Christl, PhD, Executive Director of Global Regulatory and R&D Policy for Amgen, will provide an overview of key pharmacist-specific considerations for biosimilars, including details of the approval process, considerations for appropriate use, and practices that mitigate inadvertent substitution and encourage accurate adverse event reporting. The development and approval process for biosimilars will be described in detail, including the concept of the totality of evidence and the individual data components. The presentation will also highlight the state of interchangeability in the United States, including a summary of its statutory definition, applicability to medical practice, implications for pharmacy substitution, and role in the uptake of biosimilars.
