The leaked document, prepared by a working group of the Department of Health’s Rebalancing Medicines Legislation and Pharmacy Regulation Programme Board, suggested that current legislation could be changed to allow a registered pharmacy professional, which could include a technician, to take responsibility for the sale and supply of pharmacy and prescription-only medicines.

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has said it believes a pharmacist should always be present in a pharmacy, apart from occasional short periods of time.

Responding to a leaked document produced for the Department of Health (DH) on the issue of whether pharmacy technicians should be allowed to supervise pharmacies, the RPS has issued an eight-point position statement on the role of registered technicians supervising the sale and supply of medicines.

Training and Development is a highly developed and evolved, broad body of knowledge. Many employees place themselves at a disadvantage vis-à-vis their colleagues in the absence of the right professional training and development. If employees have to consistently close gaps in their learning, they need to keep upgrading their knowledge and skills. They should also use training and development to understand how to meet the regulatory requirements the organization is required to comply with.

Difficulties of training and development in the life sciences

This said; the need for technical training in the area of life sciences has not got the attention that many other areas have. Technical training and development skills in the field of life sciences is extremely important in helping professionals in that important area get proper guidance of the regulations in the areas of life sciences and benefit from them.

Technical training in the life sciences applications, however, has its challenges.  Mention needs to be made of two of them: A) The field of life sciences consists of activities such as formulating Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), work instructions, and having to carry out tests and clinical trials, all of which are pretty complex. B) Regulations are often considered complex to grasp and implement.

Charles will essentially seek to ignite the training and learning needs of talented and technically competent training professionals who may need more focused instruction and direction in the area of technical training in the Life Sciences. He will examine the guidance that all training professionals need at all skill levels to truly build and sustain a training organization in today’s difficult corporate environment, and show how to effectively identify gaps in workforce training and compliance documentation and build effective and inexpensive training materials with the tools that are available.

A very important takeaway of this seminar is the learning of how to integrate Training & Development with compliance, so that the participants can leverage the benefits of compliance to improve the performance of the workforce and the overall performance of technical operations.

Personnel in the life sciences industries that are associated with training, such as Directors of Training, Training Supervisors, Training Coordinators, Training Developers, Instructional Designers and Instructors will benefit from this seminar. The following is the agenda of this seminar:

  • Introduction to Training and Development in the Life Sciences and the Relationship between Training and Regulatory Compliance
