Barnett International Announces New SOP Development and Optimization Courses
Needham, MA, February 21, 2012 — Barnett International announced today the launch of an ongoing series of web-based courses focused on SOP development, optimization and standardization. The goal of the series is to help attendees create user-friendly SOPs that continuously support standards for quality and validity of data, as required by the regulations, while also providing value to their users.
Key topic areas include:
• Procedural Document System: Organized Development
• SOP on SOPs and Procedural Document Templates
• Five Key Strategic Steps for Developing Global SOPs
• Preparing for SOP Inspection: An Auditor’s Perspective
• Implementation of Procedural Documents
Taught by Barnett’s lead SOP development subject matter experts, the courses cover a range of learning objectives including how different types of procedural documents can be used to improve quality, compliance and efficiency, how to perform a cross-functional process inventory, how to identify key points about the SOP on SOPs and how this document affects other procedural documents. Also included is a methodology for developing effective global SOPs, as well as the FDA’s new expectations for SOPs from Sponsors/CROS and Clinical Investigators (with an update on IRB requirements).
“We are very excited about this new series, and in particular, the emphasis on recent case studies concerning issues in SOP documentation and implementation practices. Through the interactive features built into the courses, participants will have the opportunity to discuss lessons learned common pitfalls to avoid,” said Naila Ganatra, Barnett’s General Manager.
Barnett’s new courses are available as web-based training courses which can also be brought to your site, providing a high degree of flexibility for learners.
