This training course will provide an overview of the QRM process with an emphasis on the principles in ICH Q9 (R1) and ICH Q10. A portion of the training course will be focused on how QRM can be integrated into the Pharmaceutical Quality System and the use of QRM principles throughout the product lifecycle. The concept of the Quality Risk Management Master Plan will also be introduced, as a mechanism to build a new risk program, align with evolving expectations, and strategize.

This training course will further build on the conceptual lessons by teaching practical skills, covering a broad look at QRM tools, templates, facilitation tips, and managing teams and bias. Lastly, this training course will close out with evaluating the power of decision making in using a risk register and a best practice approach for building a QRM program at your company.

  1. Identify and explain all facets of the ICH Q9(R1) Quality Risk Management life cycle
