Medical Device Risk Management; Beyond FMEA - New Tools to Assure Your Risk Management Program Meets New Standards *Presented by Ombu Enterprises and FDAnews* Nov. 5-6, 2013 — Chicago, IL; www.fdanews.com/MDRiskPR2

Falls Church, VA, October 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Is Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) the cornerstone of your risk management program? Consider this quote from the FDA’s QSR expert Kim Trautman:

“Are FMEA or FMECA… good tools? Yes. They are very good tools that can be utilized. Are they in and of themselves a risk management system? Absolutely not. I can’t tell you how many manufacturers I have seen that have tried to present their risk management system by simply presenting a FMEA — that is not a risk management system. Do not make the mistake of presenting FMEAs as your whole risk management system.”

Imagine, in two days you can learn about 5 new risk management tools and 4 emerging new standards to transform your risk management program.

FDAnews and Dan O’Leary, President of Ombu Enterprises, have developed a comprehensive workshop that is packed with immediate use tools and techniques to improve your current program. This course goes well beyond FMEA to show you how its limitations could be your downfall.

Plus, the program provides interactive sessions to put the tools to use in mock scenarios.

You’ll learn how ETA, FTA, HACCP, PHA and HAZOP could be the keys to avoiding your next device disaster.

And as a bonus; this tightly focused workshop, will explain 4 new standards that call out ISO 14971 and how they can be integrated into your program. The new standards include:

* IEC 60601-1, Medical electrical equipment — Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance
* IEC 62304, Medical device software — Software life-cycle processes
* FDA Draft Guidance — Applying Human Factors and Usability Engineering to Optimize Medical Device Design
* The basic concepts of the assurance case

Seating is at a premium for this event — Register today at www.fdanews.com/MDRiskPR2. Other areas the event will focus on include:

· How the FDA and international regulatory bodies measure the severity of a risk and what the different levels of seriousness are

· How to create and administer a risk management file — think of it as your risk management file cabinet

· Understand how to score risks and create a risk “scorecard” — how to use severity and probability

· Tips to assure that all your risk management reports contain the 9 checklist items all reports should have

· And much more

You’ll leave this workshop a much better risk management professional.
