PDA’s 4th Metrics Conference

Measuring the State of Quality Metrics

July August 2017

I had the pleasure of networking and discussing quality metrics and quality culture with industry and U.S. FDA leadership at the 2017 PDA Quality Metrics and Quality Culture Conference Feb. 21–22 in Bethesda, Md. This year’s conference (PDA’s fourth on the topic of metrics) included some of the most candid and honest dialog that I’ve seen between industry and FDA, and I’ve attended all of the quality metrics meetings so far. I thought I would share some of my learnings from this two- day event.
