Using Learning Management Systems (LMS) to Develop Pharma Training: Rewards & Challenges

Recorded Session
90 Minutes


    Learning Management Systems (LMS) are important tools for assuring and demonstrating that pharma companies maintain their staff training, and their efforts are up-to-date.  These systems often boast great functionality but also have limitations that must be overcome for companies to use them effectively.  A specific area that is not well understood is the development of training curricula in LMS systems, which presents its own unique challenges and takes far more time to implement than is commonly thought.  In addition, many of us have training as an ancillary responsibility and do not have the luxury of time to create and maintain a complex array of curricula.

    If you and your colleagues want to maximize the benefits of a LMS and avoid the headaches, then join us for this 90-minute interactive session.

Learning Objectives

    • Articulate what constitutes a Pharma curriculum
    • Distinguish a true Pharma curriculum from common misconceptions regarding Pharma curricula
    • Work effectively with peers and management to set up curricula for their organizations
    • Obtain details of employees’ job functions that are necessary for setting up curricula
    • Create curricula that are intuitive for employees
    • Demonstrate training compliance to auditors through the effective use of curricula

Why Should You Attend?

    Compliance considerations, your quality culture, and work culture are all important points of focus. Additionally, where does employee “onboarding” end and real “job training” start? Your onboarding effort is critical in so many other ways too, as it represents your only opportunity at a first impression, and allows you to shape early motivation for your new employees. Although many hiring managers and other supervisory personnel struggle with onboarding, there are simple steps you can take to ensure a successful and compliant program.

    This course will address the issues that accompany onboarding new or transferred employees and enable you to navigate them successfully.
