Teaching and Training of Personnel: Good Manufacturing Practices
Good manufacturing practices require that each person involved in the manufacture of blood and blood components has the education, training, and experience to perform their assigned functions. One aspect of that training and education requires an adequate familiarity with the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) that pertain to the assigned job duties. The blood banking industry is faced with not only the challenge of training to develop job-skill competencies, but also to satisfy the GMP performance demands. A comprehensive training strategy can not totally separate these two objectives, but instead should incorporate the relevant aspects of the GMP requirements into job-specific skill training.
