About this course

The purpose of residual risk analysis (RRA) is to confirm that a product’s risks have been reduced to a level that both the manufacturer and regulators consider acceptable. 

This course discusses the subjective nature of how people perceive risk, the definition of residual risk analysis, and the role RRA plays in medical device development. It also describes anchor points for RRA commentaries and general tips for writing compelling commentaries. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: (1) describe RRA, (2) express the crucial RRA serves in medical device development, (3) suggest anchor points for RRA commentaries, and (4) write compelling commentaries.
