Whether working on software as a medical device, or a health software application, appropriate risk management at all stages of the product lifecycle is essential to ensure patient safety, user safety, and regulatory compliance. The ISO 14971 and DCB0129 standards provide frameworks to identify, estimate, evaluate, monitor, and control the risk of software-based medical products. Therefore, a good understanding of how risks should be managed to follow these standards is extremely important for anyone involved in medical software development.

During this in-person course, you’ll gain an understanding of risk management principles, tools and techniques. You’ll learn how to apply the risk management process in practice and receive guidance and insight from quality and regulatory professionals.  The workshop will focus on software devices, however the techniques covered may be applied to hardware devices or components.

This one-day workshop is brought to you by the WEISS Quality Service in collaboration with Psephos Biomedica, a medical device regulatory, clinical, and quality consultancy with extensive experience bringing medical technologies to market.
