Making our future a bit more GxP proof

Making our future a bit more GxP proof

Roeland Meijers - Han university of applied sciences

During the first semester of 2016-2017, 24 students of the HAN university of applied sciences (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) were given the opportunity to follow a GxP course on a professional level, provided by the highly experienced professionals of Rescop. The students did this as part of the minor ‘Slim Plannen en Organiseren in de Zorg’, a Dutch study-program focussed on innovating and improving healthcare processes. During four intensive classes the students learned how traceability and accountability form the core of GxP-compliance. Starting from the need for good practices in the healthcare, both Mrs. Loes Kalkman and Mr. Bert Geilgens took the students on the journey of the lifecycle of a medical drug, through GLP, GCP, GMP and GDP, to the need for GAMP and finishing with Good Documentation Practices. Furthermore, every class was highlighted by a guest lecturer, kicking the topic at hand. Next to the quality guidelines and regulatory affairs concerning GxP, the students learned a lot from the hands-on experience and stories of both senior consultants and of the guest lecturers. Providing the students not only with a sound theoretical basis, but also with sufficient context to properly understand what compliance is all about. When passing the final exam at the end of January 2017, the students will not only finish their minor, but will also be provided with a certificate by the Rescop Academy. With this course Rescop invests in the future of Dutch students that have an interest in healthcare and management, contributing and growing professional know how and experience. These students will have a competitive advantage for their professional future.
