The training

Following procedures is often unnecessarily time-consuming and ambiguities cause costly mistakes. In practice, SOPs and protocols are insufficiently organised, overwhelming for the reader and contain unclear or irrelevant information. To prevent these mistakes and to reduce the bridge between theory and practice, PCS has designed a training course that will teach you the basic principles of Good Writing Practices. Some of the topics covered in this training are; the basic structures of the document system, the stakeholders in writing correct procedures, writing techniques, and tools for analysing, organising and presenting information. This training goes beyond just learning the theory. In the afternoon, you will work on your own procedures and apply what you have learned directly in your own practice.

Target group:

This training is intended for employees in the pharmaceutical industry involved in writing or reviewing procedures. In particular, QA Officers, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), department heads, managers and documentalists frequently attend this training.
