Course Information

Risk Management can be a very complex process. ISO14971:2007 has been written to align it with the product development lifecycle and integrate into the manufacturers existing processes. This course will provide the delegate with the tools necessary to interpret ISO14971 and integrate risk management within their organization. It is a practical, workshop based course aimed towards accelerating the delegates' understanding through using focussed examples and stimulating the delegates' thought processes in relation to risk management within their organizations. The course takes you through the typical phases of risk management and provides the delegate with the necessary practicalities of implementing risk management within their organization. It starts off by explaining the risk management plan, the mechanisms used in order to research information associated with hazards, their probability and severity. The course guides the delegate through the methods of accepting risk and transferring awareness of risk controls into areas such as manufacturing, the supply chain, clinical follow-up and product management. The course provides the delegate with the mechanism for integrating risk management into daily organizational processes and gives guidance on how to keep risk management ""alive"" within their business. Medical Device manufacturers are expected to understand risk. This course will help you to understand the best way of integrating risk management into your organization and give you the tools and techniques necessary to ensure the risk management process effectively meets your requirements and the requirements of international regulators.
