16 September 2009

This period has been one of researching, writing, editing and receiving feed back from the Reference Groups. Let us update you in greater detail what has happened since the last update in the following:

Development of content

Most of the content for the 12 main topics has been finalized and shared with the Reference Groups. It has been a positive development process receiving feedback from the members of the Reference Groups on a one-on-one basis which has led to interesting discussions on: what to remember when doing an assessment; what are the steps to remember when dealing with customs; and how do you most effectively set up a procurement process?

The Reference Group members talked about their personal experience, shared lessons learned and provided input and suggestions on additional material to include in the LOG. The LOG team would like to thank all of the Reference Group members for their time and commitment to the project.

1 – MedLog training launch as it will be available for students to registered
