What is risk-based thinking?
For FDA-regulated industries, there is no clearly stated definition of what risk-based thinking is, let alone clear instructions on how to take the concept of risk and deploy it throughout your entire quality management system.
However, according to the FDA, risk management should be an integral and ongoing part of any quality management process, including:
- Offer a systematic approach to quality risk management
- Promote a risk-based approach to the monitoring of clinical investigations
- Provide a basis for assessing, analyzing, and evaluating risk
FDA-regulated industries face increased pressure to develop risk-based monitoring strategies and plans for every facet of their GxP process.
On Tuesday, April 28 at 1:30 PM EST/10:30 AM PST, experienced Technical Operations Manager, Ernest Blanchard, hosted a comprehensive webinar about the concept of risk management and risk-based thinking within management systems for GxP professionals. Specifically, how to take the concept of risk and deploy it throughout your entire quality management system.
