Gain a comprehensive overview of the core components of risk management throughout the medical device lifecycle

Course Overview

Risk Management is an important but difficult concept for lots of industries, but is particularly important within the medical field and hence within medical devices. In such a hazard-rich industry, risk must be considered from the beginning to the very end of a product lifecycle. Implementing risk has never been more challenging, as recent regulatory changes have made it problematic to harmonize risk management processes in product lifecycles. Therefore, it is imperative to understand how to coordinate an effective risk management strategy.

This interactive course offers a comprehensive overview of the regulatory requirements for risk management and provides an insight into a variety of tools and techniques to implement them into your own systems. Attendees will be provided with an in-depth outlook on ISO 14971:2019 and its overlap with ISO 13485:2016 and the new MDR, alongside gaining an informed insight into the intricacies of risk management planning. Overall, attendees will expect to be taken through the risk management process from start to finish.

Attendees will be able to cement this knowledge through case studies and practical exercises, with additional time on the course provided to discuss the implications of Brexit.
