Who Should Attend?
This course is intended for professionals in the Medical Products industry and those in Contract Research Organizations who operate in Stability, Quality Control, Analytical Chemistry and Quality Assurance departments.

It will be especially beneficial for Technicians, Scientists, Associates, Specialists, Supervisors/Managers and Associate Directors, as well as other stakeholder roles associated with the Stability function.

Course Description
There is a universe of individuals, departments, and contract organizations outside the direct control of the Stabilitarian which interact with the stability process in ways that can boost or hinder the success of the program. Some of these are obvious while others go virtually unrecognized, yet members of both can impact us severely and deserve our attention.

This 90-minute accredited ON DEMAND training course will demonstrate how the Stabilitarian can optimize relationships and interactions with these “stars” in the Stability Universe to bring about the best possible outcomes for both sides of the partnership.
