Data Integrity is currently a hot topic worldwide. The issuance of warning letters by the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) has increased significantly and the trend continues. Inspectors expect to see strong policies for handling data, both for written documents and digital systems.
As a pharmaceutical employee, you must understand the principles of data integrity and know how best to record data. ALCOA is recognized by national authorities as a tool to clarify expectations in good documentation practice, also known as GDocP.
This course allows new employees to quickly learn how to complete documentation and make corrections using the ALCOA tool in a fun and interactive way.
