||Course "Medical Device Risk Management A to Z - Best Practices for Effectiveness and Efficiency" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
FDA views risk management as an essential process both during inspections and in the review of pre-market submissions. Effective risk management has become critical to medical device manufacturers and this interactive two day seminar is aimed at providing medical device professionals with the tools necessary for effective risk management implementation in device manufacturing and marketing.
It will address both the fundamentals of risk management as well as current best practices for ISO 14971 compliance. The course will look in detail at risk management requirements in the US, the EU, and other parts of the world. Taught using an interactive workshop format, attendees will practice all the risk management activities required by ISO 14971. Exercises are aimed at demonstrating efficient and effective use of risk management, including best practices in applying the ISO standard. Emphasis is placed on practical solutions to practical problems. Seminar instructor Harvey Rudolph, Ph.D., one of the authors of ISO 14971 and a 25 year veteran of FDA, will also provide insight on the guidance contained in new ISO TR 24971 (Guidance on the application of ISO 14971) and how to integrate risk management into your quality management system.

Manufacturers that market devices in the European Union have found additional requirements for their risk management activities as detailed in EN/ISO 14971:2012.

Chicago, IL, Local Attractions
Tampa, FL, Local Attractions
One of the more breathtaking scenes on the lake is this tall ship approaching the docks at Navy Pier. The 148-foot four-masted schooner (and its new sister ship, the Windy II ) sets sail for 90-minute cruises two to five times a day, both day and evening. (Because the boats are sometimes booked by groups, the schedule changes each week; call first to confirm sailing times). The boats are at the whims of the wind, so every cruise charts a different course. Passengers are welcome to help raise and trim the sails and occasionally take turns at the ship's helm (with the captain standing close by). The boats are not accessible for people with disabilities.
Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum
The building may be historic (it was the first planetarium in the Western Hemisphere), but some of the attractions here will captivate the most jaded video-game addict.
Your first stop should be the modern Sky Pavilion, where the don't-miss experience is the StarRider Theater. Settle down under the massive dome, and you'll take a half-hour interactive virtual-reality trip through the Milky Way and into deep space, featuring a computer-generated 3-D-graphics projection system and controls in the armrest of each seat. Six high-resolution video projectors form a seamless image above your head -- you'll feel as if you're literally floating in space. If you're looking for more entertainment, the Sky Theater shows movies with an astronomical bent; recent shows have included Secrets of Saturn and Mars Now!
Arlington International Racecourse
With its gleaming-white, palatial, six-story grandstand and lush gardens, this racecourse is one of the most beautiful showcases for thoroughbred horse racing in the world. Its storied history stretches back to 1927, and such equine stars as Citation, Secretariat, and Cigar have graced the track. The annual Arlington Million (the sport's first million-dollar race, held in mid-Aug) attracts top jockeys, trainers, and horses and is part of the World Series Racing Championship, which includes the Breeders Cup races. Arlington's race days are thrilling to behold, with all of racing's time-honored pageantry on display -- from the bugler in traditional dress to the parade of jockeys.
Art Institute of Chicago
You can't -- and shouldn't -- miss the Art Institute. (You really have no excuse, since it's conveniently located right on Michigan Ave. in the heart of downtown.) No matter what medium or century interests you, the Art Institute has something in its collection to fit the bill. Japanese ukiyo-e prints, ancient Egyptian bronzes, Greek vases, 19th-century British photography, masterpieces by most of the greatest names in 20th-century sculpture, and modern American textiles are just some of the works on display, but for a general overview of the museum's collection, take the free "Highlights of the Art Institute" tour Saturday and Sunday.
Auditorium Building and Theatre
A truly grand theater with historic-landmark status, the Auditorium gives visitors a taste of late-19th-century Chicago opulence. Because it's still a working theater -- not a museum -- it's not always open to the public during the day; to make sure you'll get in, schedule a guided tour, which are offered on Mondays at 10am and noon.
Designed and built in 1889 by Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler, the 4,000-seat Auditorium was a wonder of the world: the heaviest (110,000 tons) and most massive modern edifice on earth, the most fireproof building ever constructed, and the tallest building in Chicago. It was also the first large-scale building to be lit by electricity, and its theater was the first in the country to install air-conditioning. Originally the home of the Chicago Opera Company, Sullivan and Adler's masterpiece is defined by powerful arches lit by thousands of bulbs and features Sullivan's trademark ornamentation -- in this case, elaborate golden stenciling and gold plaster medallions. It's equally renowned for otherworldly acoustics and unobstructed sightlines.
Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI)
More than 450 activities await you at this non-profit facility dedicated to promoting a better understanding of science and technology. The Saunders Planetarium shows you the stars. Step inside the Gulf Coast Hurricane exhibit for a blast of tropical nightmare. At the IMAX Dome Theatre, the world is bigger than life, filled with odd sights and sounds on a huge screen. Souvenirs ranging from totes and T-shirts to puzzles and posters are available at the Science Store. For refreshment, the MOSI Café offers pizzas, salads and sandwiches. In late February, the BARF (Bay Area Renaissance Festival) takes place here.
Salvador Dali Museum
Housing the largest collection of Salvador Dali works in the world, the museum offers a regularly changing exhibit of the legendary surrealist artist's melting-watch canvases and a wide variety of his sculpture and fiber objects that are, at the very least, intriguing. One memorable creation toasts the cocktail party; it is a vest covered with full glasses of creme de menthe. Daily tours seek to explain this complex man and his equally complex art. In the museum store you can select a memento of your surreal experience. Do check the website or call for timings.
Tampa Museum of Art
Established in 1979, this museum houses more than 4,500 objects in its permanent collection and exhibits the largest collection of Greek and Roman antiquities in the Southeast. The Center Gallery displays themed exhibitions from the permanent collection. For a look at 19th and 20th century sculpture set against the backdrop of the Hillsborough River, visit the Terrace Gallery. Stroll through the Outdoor Courtyard featuring contemporary sculptures, fountains and bronze work. For gifts, books, children's items or home accessories, stop by the museum store.
Craftsman House is a gallery that showcases contemporary art works. The lush green lawns and beautiful garden welcome visitors in to this creative space. Owned and managed by Stephanie Schorr, it is a gallery-cum-working studio. Here, you will see umpteen art works displayed; jewelry, glass designs and much more work of local and national artists make for its splendid collection. It also has an on-site café serving delicious short eats and variety of beverages including beer and wines. Apart from the art works, Craftsman House also has a pottery studio that features colorful mugs, pots, vases and other wares that will adorn your living room. The innovative designs and art pieces are truly worth a look; so go ahead and visit the Craftsman House soon.
