Overview of Webinar
Knowledge management is the process of capturing, distributing and effectively using knowledge. It has always been a key factor in the successful development and manufacture of pharmaceutical products. Understanding the chemical and physical processes underlying material interactions in dosage form formulation, production process and product storage throughout the shelf-life is fundamental in assuring quality, efficacy, and safety of a medicinal product.
Knowledge management has gained increasing importance in the pharmaceutical industry over the past 10-15 years. Its importance has been emphasised in the ICH Q10 guideline which considers knowledge management as a key enabler of the pharmaceutical quality system.
The two expert speakers (Dr Marco Adami and Dr Alessandro Regola) will share their practical experience of problems and opportunities in knowledge management encountered during their careers in the pharmaceutical industry.
By the end of this presentation, you will be able to:
1. Know the fundamentals of knowledge management.
2. Understand the meaning of the term “knowledge”.
3. Recognise why knowledge management is so important to the pharmaceutical industry.
4. Appreciate the role of knowledge management in promoting innovation.
