Training manager to discuss methods for ensuring a highly qualified workforce in the pharmaceutical industry

Kristina Spitler, Training Manager at Almac Clinical Services’ facility in North Carolina, is speaking at the upcoming FDA Regulatory and Compliance Symposium “Managing Risks – From Pipeline to Patient”. The Symposium takes place August 22nd through 24th at Harvard University.

Kristina will lead a seminar discussion on designing effective training to meet FDA requirements. The FDA issued over 40 warning letters last year for inadequate training. Kristina’s seminar, entitled

“Really Trained or Reportedly Trained?” will discuss what FDA warning letters say about the effectiveness of corporate training programs and how to develop training that delivers more than just “documented training”.

“At Almac, our core values are centered around people, and it follows that we place special importance on designing training programs which exceed regulatory requirements and are stimulating and relevant for our employees. I look forward to sharing our expertise and experience at the Symposium this Summer,”

said Kristina.

Kristina will also present a similar subject involving GMP training effectiveness at a FDA News audio-conference on June 26th.
