When a problem with a medical device arises, the appropriate response is to dig deep to find and fix the root cause. After all, the goal is to prevent the error from repeating. Not only that—you must abide by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s quality management system requirements to collect both pre- and post- manufacturing data from customers, quality review panels, R&D, ISO standards, and more.
That’s a tall compliance task—one that many don’t get right: For the past 15 years, the number one reason for FDA 483 Observations and Warning Letters is failure to implement a Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) process.
Don’t be an FDA statistic. Learn how to avoid getting stuck addressing the same quality issues over and over again—or retraining employees multiple times on the same improvements. Join expert speaker Ajit Basrur for an in-depth guide to using root cause analysis and CAPA controls to address medical device defects. Understand how to identify weaknesses in your system, develop a data-driven approach to problem-solving, take remedial actions to strengthen your processes, and put permanent solutions in place.
Getting root cause analysis right is imperative. Otherwise, all your efforts to correct errors and prevent new defects from arising will be futile. After attending this audio event, you will understand how to implement CAPA correctly by taking three key actions: Address problems as they arise, make appropriate system changes based on sound root cause analysis, and proactively evaluate quality data to stop issues from arising in the first place. You’ll be better equipped to follow the FDA’s CAPA guidelines to build a compliant, robust quality control system to the benefit of employees, customers, and stakeholders.
Here is a taste of what you will uncover:
