POST 00982E : TECHNET MEETING 30 September 2006 _____________________________________ To continue discussions of topics on the TechNet meeting agenda, we call today for contributions on topics of the second session on "Equipment management". The two topics on the agenda are : 1. Equipment inventories and needs assessment. 2. Product Performance, Quality and Safety. To help focus the discussion, objectives and outcome of the session are reproduced here. Objective 1 : Review of equipment inventory experience in relation to equipment needs forecasting. Outcomes : Are equipment inventories being routinely updated? Are they being used to forecast equipment needs? Should equipment inventory software facilitate forecasting and planning for new vaccine introduction? Objective 2 : Review of status of the new Product Quality and Safety (PQS) system in relation to the arrival of new products for monitoring vaccine storage. Outcomes : Where is the PQS––how can the process be accelerated? What can be done to meet needs in the interim? How will these new products benefit field implementation? It is hoped that those who will not be able to attend the meeting will contribute to this discussion to assert their ideas. ______________________________________________________________________________ All members of the TechNet21 e-Forum are invited to send comments on any posting or to use the forum to raise a new discussion or request technical information in relation to immunization services.
