This DIT MOOC, in association with GetReskilled, is a free, three-week introduction to Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, a highly regulated environment due to the need to ensure patient safety. This MOOC also acts as a ‘taster’ for DIT’s BSc in the Manufacture of Medicinal Products (DT291), and Continuing Professional Development courses e(Bio)PharmaChem, and e-Validation, and will be facilitated by Dr. Anne Green (DIT) and Dr. Joe Brady (GetReskilled).Topics to be explored during this MOOC include: How are our medicines made? (Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Technologies) How safe are our medicines? (Pharmaceutical Quality and Regulation), and What do Pharmaceutical Manufactures and NASA have in common? (Quality Risk Management ), along with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP’s) and how this philosophy emerged to ensure not just Product Quality but also Patient Safety and the Data Integrity that underpins it. All content will be presented in a practical and easy to understand format, with videos and detailed supporting materials, practical examples, live streamed sessions, and online collaborations via discussion forums, Facebook and Twitter. A certificate of attendance will be presented to all those who participate fully in the MOOC and who pass the weekly wrap-up quizzes.
