According to the article:

3 Ways To Overcome Resistance To Online Learning – eLearning Industry



“Despite the widespread adoption of technological advances, people still resist online learning. Although we may be quick to point the finger at older generations that did not grow up digitally, the resistance can come from any age group for any number of reasons.

Rather than discuss those reasons, I want to consider how we can overcome the resistance. Three ways I have found effective in practice are: highlighting the benefits, demonstrating the possibilities, and offering training.”

FDA Announces NIPP For Sterile Injectable Drugs



“This New Inspection Protocol Project (NIPP) uses standardized electronic inspection protocols to collect data in a structured manner for more consistent oversight of facilities and faster and more efficient analysis of our findings. The protocols also include additional questions related to quality culture observed in facilities. The new tool is being applied to our inspectional work related to sterile injectable drugs, which have been the subject of sterility problems and shortages in the past. The primary focus of this new tool is to ensure a more streamlined and consistent coverage and reporting of our inspectional activities.”

“These aseptic processing drug inspection protocols for sterile drugs are the first of what we plan to be a series of valuable new inspection protocols covering all dosage forms. As we integrate learnings from these pilots in our field activities, our goal is to have them ready for full implementation within the next two years. These modern tools are a key part of our efforts to protect the health and safety of U.S. patients.”

GMP Trainer Awareness, Certification, and Master Trainer Courses

GMP Trainer Awareness, Certification, and Master Trainer Courses

This online self-study course leads participants through many different ways to teach cGMPs and QSRs. Learn what a class instructor thinks while delivering a training session to students, so you can repeat that training approach in your own organization.

How This Course Is Implemented

This course is implemented in three phases: Awareness, Certification, and Master Trainer.

  1. GMP Trainer Awareness – Students view presentations covering the course objectives below.
  2. GMP Trainer Certification – Students view the “Awareness” presentations. Students then prepare elements of a training session demonstrating the application of the content taught in the awareness course, or in some cases, capture and submit video segments of an actual or practice training session. All information submitted will be reviewed and critiqued by a team of Master Trainers. This course is taken simultaneously with the Awareness course.
  3. GMP Master Trainer – Learn GMP content to assure you know the basic GMP rules. This phase of the program is under development.

This is NOT a public seminar workshop. Our public seminar was so popular; we turned it into an online self-study course that fits into your busy schedule.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Apply a Participant Centered Approach to training
  • Write course objectives
  • Development a course assessment
  • Describe the difference between ice breakers and activities

Cut Training Costs With Online Learning – eLearning Industry

However …   Just like classroom training, online learning requires engagement at every level of the process. From upper management down to the learners themselves—there has to be some kind of engagement strategy in place. Without this high level of engagement, your training programme is doomed to failure. This means that your training’s return on investment is reliant on the amount of effort you put into effectively engaging your staff with their own self-development.”

Free GMP tip on root cause analysis (RCA)

The FDA says, “Human error is not a root cause.” If your first reflex is blaming human error, it’s time to re-think the situation in order to identify the real root cause of the human error.

There are several categories of human errors: slips, lapses, and induced errors. These can account for a large percentage of errors. In order to understand these human errors in more detail, they can be investigated through the use of investigative tools such as a Walk Through Analysis or Control Barrier Analysis.

Once the underlying contributing factors and real root cause(s) are understood, then they can be controlled (in many cases).
