Bijan Elahi’s Medical Device Risk Management Interview



Bijan Elahi, PPI’s expert presenter of our “Medical Device Risk Management” 3-day training, recently gave in an interesting interview for Medical Devices Community. The interview covers the following topics:

  • The early days of risk management
  • Current challenges facing risk managers
  • Bijan’s journey in writing his book on medical device risk management.

An excerpt from the interview follows:

If you could teach your students one thing about risk management, what would that be?

“I would like them to understand the language of risk management. Risk management has its own language. It may sound like English, but it is not. Words such as: Harm, Hazardous Situation, and Hazard don’t carry the same meaning as ordinary spoken English. Awareness and mastery of these terms and using them with care will prevent and avoid confusion and lengthy debates.”
