For a pharmaceutical operation to run smoothly, people need to understand what they need to do to the smallest detail. That’s why we have the standard operation procedures (SOPs) in place. However, not everybody knows how to write SOPs that are clear, simple, and to the point. We have all encountered SOPs that are too long, unclear, and confusing. In such cases, many employees work according to their experience bases, best practices. However, when every person works differently, it is a recipe for disaster and will eventually lead to deviations and broken processes. Therefore, pharmaceutical quality professionals must master mastery, writing SOPs, and instructions that are clear and easy to follow.
This workshop covers the essential elements for writing SOPs for manufacturing, testing, control, and distribution of medicinal products. You will learn best practice frameworks for determining when you need an SOP or a Work Instruction and understand the difference between the two. Also, you will comprehend what is the imperative, mandatory tense, and how to use it. Additionally, you will learn how to manage your controlled document system.
By the end of this hands-on workshop, you will be able to write clear and effective SOPs that will take the operation at your workplace to a new level.
