Fundamentals of Effective Risk Management for Biopharmaceutical Manufacture

NIBRT is delighted to partner with the Quality Risk Management Institute to launch the “Fundamentals of Effective Risk Management for Biopharmaceutical Manufacture” on the award winning NIBRT Online Academy.

Throughout the course of 6 modules you will have the opportunity to discover the core principles and key approaches necessary for the effective Quality Risk Management (QRM) across the biopharmaceutical product life cycle. The critical behaviours which can best protect patients are a key focus of the course as well as the critical role of leadership in establishing a proactive culture of risk prevention. 

Preventing and reducing risk is everyone’s job in a regulated GMP environment and risk management cannot be the domain of a small number of QRM subject matter experts. This fundamentals course offers the opportunity to level set the practice of risk management right across your organisation and recalibrate the prevalent risk culture to focus on prevent and reduce rather than detect and correct.

Module 1: Patient Focused Risk Management

Module 2: Fundamentals of Risk Management

Module 3: Regulatory Requirements for Quality Risk Management in the Biopharmaceutical Industry

Module 4: Implementing Effective Risk Control Strategies
