CAPA and Root Cause Investigation Training for Medical Devices

Every RA/QA manager has struggled with repeat CAPAs. A problem you thought had been solved pops up again months later, but why? Persistent problems are not only annoying, they can also endanger patient safety, cost money, and steer internal focus away from other issues.

We’ve helped many companies assess the health of their Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) systems and find that it often comes down to the basics: determining the need for CAPA and defining the problem. This course provides a deep dive into the process, beginning with a solid problem definition statement, which is determined with data that can be used to verify the effectiveness of the implemented solution. Using workshops, case studies, and simulations, in this course you’ll work through the entire root cause analysis process, from creating a data-based problem statement, applying Root Cause (RC) tools, and conducting data analysis for verifying the cause to selecting the best solution and determining its effectiveness.

What You Will Learn

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify why CAPA is required and who requires it
  • Develop a risk-based approach to the CAPA process to determine the depth of investigation, CAPA cycle time, and any immediate corrections your organization needs to take
  • Describe the benefits of creating a problem-solving culture within the organization
  • Create an effective problem statement 
  • Document CAPA findings
  • Differentiate and document known problems versus identifying those problems that require further investigation and CAPA
  • Analyze the root cause: Fishbone, 5 Whys
  • Verify the root cause, including with logic, trials, and data
  • Select, implement, verify, and maintain solutions
  • Defend the investigation
  • Prepare for an FDA inspection of CAPA

Who Should Attend
