10-Week Risk Management/Risk-Based Quality Management for Clinical Trials Certification Program
Are you prepared for Quality Risk Management (QRM), Risk Management (RM), Risk-Based Quality Management (RBQM)? With ICH GCP E6 R2 now requiring risk-based approaches to managing quality in clinical trials, this 10-Week series takes you through, step-by-step, how to execute these requirements. We will focus on the critical elements for clinical trial sponsors and CROs included in the ICH GCP E6 R2 expectations, while highlighting key points from other regulatory bodies such as ISO 31000 Risk Management. Each step of risk identification, assessment, control, review, reporting, management, and communication are also reviewed.
