    Audits Inopinés: Etes vous prêts?
    - Comment les préparer avec vos fournisseurs
    - Les connaissez vous vraiment
    - Savez vous comment ils se préparent
    - Etes vous prêts
    Afin de prévenir de possibles pratiques frauduleuses dans la fabrication de dispositifs médicaux, la Commission Européenne a publié la Recommandation 2013/473 / EU sur les audits et évaluations réalisés par les organismes notifiés, dans le cadre de la mise en oeuvre des Mesures d'action immédiate post- PIP.
    Un des changement important introduit par cette recommandation concerne les audits inopinés des sous-traitants déterminants et fournisseurs essentiels de matières premières. Les auditeurs des organismes notifiés peuvent auditer leur site de fabrication au même titre que le fabricant du dispositif médical.
    Le chiffre de 5000 audits inopinés est avancé par les organismes notifiés pour cette année, en plus des audits de surveillance et de certification classiques. Ils sont en premier lieu prévus sur les sites des fabricants de dispositifs médicaux, et peuvent désormais être étendus aux sous-traitants et fournisseurs.
    C'est le moment d'évaluer le système qualité et la chaine d'approvisionnement des fournisseurs de vos matières premières critiques. Nous vous invitons à vous joindre à notre wébinaire "Audits Inopinés: Etes vous prêts?" dans lequel nous parlerons des implications de cette Recommandation sur les relations avec les fournisseurs et comment s'y préparer:
    Les sujets abordés:
    - qu'est ce qu'un audit inopinés et quel est son périmètre d'évaluation
    - que recherchent les organismes notifiés pendant un audit inopiné
    - quelle est la définition d'un fournisseur essentiel
    - les questions à poser aux fournisseurs de matières premières critiques pour se préparer

  • Houston, we’ve had a problem here...

    These words were calmly stated by Commander Jim Lovell on 14 April 1970, and immortalised 25 years later in the movie Apollo 13. Lovell’s phrase has become a byword for focus. For this seminar we will draw on an analysis of the letters from Monitor addressed to Chairs. These are not letters that are welcomed. Rather, they are ones that the recipient would prefer were lost in the post.

    They are sent because problems have occurred in the Foundation Trust. To paraphrase, Houston, you’ve got a problem. Having analysed these letters, we see four problem areas that Commander Lovell would wish to discuss with Chairs:

    • Level of understanding among board members about their business
    • Quality of information and intelligence available for decision making
    • Effectiveness of non-executive director challenge
    • Ability to hold executive directors to account for implementation of board decisions

    This Webinar will go into each of these inter-linked areas, to see what the problem is, its impact, and what can be done about it. We’ll use a range of models that bring theory to the practice, and will draw on experience from across the NHS.

    John Deffenbaugh, a director of Frontline and an NHS non-executive director, will host this Webinar.

  • Cell therapy is the fastest growing segment of regenerative medicine. Cell therapy is comprised of immune cell therapy and stem cell therapy, with stem cell therapy making up the largest part of this market; it is estimated that the global stem cell therapy market will reach $40 billion by 2020 and $180 billion by 2030.

    Many factors determine the rate at which the stem cell therapy market advances. It is driven by the success of stem cell treatments in curing life-threatening diseases such as cancer, heart diseases and neuromuscular diseases in the world’s aging populations. In contrast, the stem cell market growth rate is hindered by manufacturing and regulatory concerns. For example, if only 20% of the 318 global late-stage clinical trials are approved for release on the market, there will not be enough stem cell therapy manufacturing facilities to produce the 64 resulting products. This is due, in part, to funding concerns, the high cost of build-out, as well as cGMP compliance, standardization of production processes, and ever changing industry regulations.

  • Vitamin D has traditionally been closely linked to bone health. It prevents rickets in children, as well as lowers the risk of fracture and osteoporosis in adults and the elderly. The links between vitamin D and bone health will be highlighted as part of the upcoming World Osteoporosis Day on 20th October 2015.

    Articles discussing the diverse positive effects of vitamin D have recently been hitting the headlines, with 3,500 studies published every year and ongoing research into its emerging health benefits. Despite this, 88% of the global population have low vitamin D intake due to poor nutrition and sun exposure. There is still a lack of knowledge among consumers about the long-term effects of vitamin D deficiency.

    Join our webinar on vitamin D and its health benefits, which will be presented by the acclaimed scientist in biochemistry and molecular biology, Dr. Bruce Ames. He will be accompanied by DSM’s Prof. Manfred Eggersdorfer and Jacob Bauly. They will present the latest findings on vitamin D and the emerging benefits across different life stages and conditions. Dr. Ames will also discuss his groundbreaking triage theory, which demonstrates that when micronutrients are scarce, the body uses them to compensate the episodic shortages at the expense of long-term survival, which leads to potential DNA damage and negative effects on human health.

  • Recordkeeping for purposes of regulatory compliance in the modern radiation oncology environment is largely a paper driven process. Many software and hardware solutions are available from vendors to solve individual issues relating to the collection and processing of QA data, but few, if any, can collect, process and present the results of this data in a cohesive way.

    This presentation will show how electronic recordkeeping is readily and routinely used in the setting of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Service lines, but strangely absent in the Oncology service line. We will attempt to cover current offerings from oncology software vendors that aim to reduce the amount of paperwork and streamline the acquisition and processing of quality assurance data. In addition, we will provide an overview of the solution we are in the process of implementing at our facility.

    Goals and Objectives
    At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to:

    -Identify the use of electronic recordkeeping in other areas of the hospital setting where radiation and radioactive materials are being utilized.

    - Assess the need for some form of comprehensive recordkeeping in Radiation Oncology.

    - Assess currently available offerings from vendors.

    - Discuss what our facility is implementing to fill this need

    Target Audience
    Medical Physicists, Oncology IT professionals, Oncology Administrators

  • Every year, retail companies are seeing more of their revenue shift to the ecommerce part of their business during the holiday season. For 2015, revenue from ecommerce sites during the holidays is forecasted to yield over $82 Billion, an increase of 14% over 2014. With this amount of retail revenue moving to ecommerce sites, companies cannot afford to have any downtime that might deter customers from accessing their site and or having a smooth customer experience. Of all the ways an ecommerce site might be affected to upset a business during a busy revenue-generating holiday season, cyber breaches are usually not thought as one of them until it’s too late.

    Security breaches are an increasingly damaging threat within the retail and ecommerce industry and can disrupt the availability and revenue of ecommerce and retail businesses. In some cases, several of the highest–profile breaches have occurred to household names, and have resulted in millions of records being released–at the cost of tens of millions of dollars–and in at least one case, costing executives their jobs. It is of course important that all retail organizations learn lessons from these breaches so as to not duplicate errors from the past.

    In preparation for one of the biggest revenue seasons of the year for ecommerce and Retail, Tricia Pattee, Security Product Manager from HOSTING and Paul Fletcher, Security Evangelist from Alert Logic will provide insight into the latest cyber security trends related to ecommerce and retail as well as the following:
    · Examine the attack vectors and the profile of the threat actors of cyber attacks
    · Provide an understanding of the weaknesses and vulnerabilities that are affecting retail and ecommerce companies
    · Discuss defenses against the retail and ecommerce-related breaches to help detect and prevent copycat attackers
