Preview of Root Cause Analysis
About this course
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) can be conducted to understand the underlying or original cause of an incident or problem. It is a core mechanism that HF professionals use to help uncover why issues occurred, and how design can potentially mitigate such occurrences.
This course covers the definition of RCA, why RCA is performed, and the steps required to conduct RCA. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: (1) explain the reasons why medical device manufacturers need to conduct RCA, (2) discuss how to conduct RCA, and (3) explain how to report root cause analysis results.
