Quality Risk Management – Workshop

Risk Management is a regulatory requirement of the pharmaceutical world. Risk Management should be the approach of choice for the entire life cycle of a medicinal product. Risk management requires the careful involvement of different professional roles to build an interdisciplinary team that guarantees the success of the approach itself. In the team, some of the essential roles should be: Quality Assurance and Process Owner(s), with different, still equally important, roles and responsibilities. 

Quality Assurance professionals and GCP Managers are key actors involved in the different phases of the planning and conduction of Clinical Studies; where Risk Management finds its full application.

The course aims to provide the basic concepts and elements of risk management in the GxP field and in particular in Clinical Research.

These basic concepts will be followed by a detailed description of the different phases of the risk management cycle, including the Risk Mitigation process, identifying the roles involved and the related responsibilities.

The lecturing section will be followed by examples of practical applications with references to real-life cases drawn from the trainers’ experiences.

Tools and related documents (e.g. Risk Register) will be described and discussed.

Course Language
The course will be in Italian.
