Across all sectors of the economy – Risk Management continues to assume increasing importance. However, much remains to be done to understand the concepts of quantifying, analyzing, and addressing risk. This is seen because the same kinds of risks (due to adverse events) surface repeatedly. Numerous cases bear this out – from recurrent risks of cancers to administering wrong medications, implants, surgery, and labeling errors.  

Several attempts have been made via embedding risk management (or taking a risk-based approach) in various standards such as ISO 13485 for medical devices, guidelines for adopting a risk-based approach by the FDA, and the European Medicines Agency (via ICH 10). None of these discuss, acknowledge, or refer to the cognitive human limitations of risk management. ISO 14971 touches on human behavior but only in the context of the user’s interaction with a medical device.  

In this webinar, attendees will discover the latent human cognitive mistakes that impact how to meet or miss the requirements and guidelines particularly applicable to the life sciences industry. Many who have attended this online seminar commented it was an eye-opener for them – in more than one way.  

A live Q&A with the speakers will follow the presentation. 

This event is brought to you by the RAPS Utah Chapter to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. RAC holders may claim 1.0 RAC recertification credit
