Education and training for hospital technical services

 

Technical services departments are expected to develop in-house training schemes for all grades of staff that fully cover all activities undertaken. All training must be fully documented and evidence of effectiveness of training must be supported by competency assessment. Observation of individual practice as a part of self-inspection schemes and operator valid-ation data are important components of the assessment process. Training programmes should be reviewed regularly and updated in line with service and individual needs. Systems should be in place to identify staff who fail validation tests or are associated with poor QA monitoring data and repeated errors. Such individuals may need additional training and reassessment.

 

A number of formal education and training courses specialising in the pharmaceutical technical services are available in the UK. These include various short courses in specialised areas and postgraduate programmes lead-ing to diploma or masters qualification, such as the Pharmaceutical Technology and Quality Assurance programme offered by Leeds University. The Technical Specialist Education and Training website is an excellent source of information for all types of courses (www.tset.org.uk).
