I don't directly deal with PAAB but the agencies I deal with do. By taking this course, it helped me to understand the reasoning behind certain decisions they take. This course has also given me a greater appreciation for what the agencies do for us because it is not easy!!

This course was extremely valuable as there can be a lot of things to remember when it comes to PAAB guidelines beyond just submission guidelines that involve reviewing many external resources - i.e. Health Canada guidelines/schedule listings, etc - this PAAB course really distills the most important information into an all-in-one to make it all make sense!

I wanted to learn more about the PAAB code and how to apply it, so I found this course very helpful as there were many cases and examples that we went through. The course was very informative and has allowed me to view materials with a different lens.

I found this to be a very informative and useful course to understand the basics of the PAAB code and regulations with respect to drug advertising. I feel that I will be able to better work with the PAAB code in my role.
