Writing SOPs and Procedural Documents: Strategies for Creating Readable Documents

Please check back later for this seminar's current schedule, or review our other live seminars for similar courses.

Course Description

One is hard-pressed to find anyone in the drugs/biologics/medical device industry who is not aware of SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures). Unfortunately, quality and usability vary widely. Many SOPs fall short of fulfilling their role as compliance and training tools. Many in the industry view SOPs as a necessary evil; but it does not have to be so.

The goal of this web seminar 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.

Learning Objectives

  • Review approaches to translating the process into readable and usable text
  • Discuss the “good, bad, and ugly” words and expressions to use
  • Identify ways to avoid or reduce risk of regulatory compliance through better writing

Who Should Attend

  • SOP Authors/Reviewers
  • Quality Assurance Auditors
  • Clinical Monitors
  • Site Managers
  • Line Function Heads
  • Project Managers
