The goal of manufacturing medications and pharmaceutical devices is for patients to use them and experience the therapeutic effect that they have. This purpose will be defeated in the absence of a distribution system that works. This course teaches about maintaining the supply chain integrity and ensuring that the products manufactured are transported from the point of production through warehouses and medical facilities to the patients in optimal quality. This is done by taking into account the appropriate transport and storage conditions.
In this course, we provide a synthesis of the topic through an interactive online experience. This material was built by a team of Regulatory Affairs Experts with a Qualification from Northeastern University, Boston, piloted by a Senior Member able to articulate theory with practice.
