Does my organization have the infrastructure to support REMS?  How do I engage key stakeholders and gain their support? How do I reconcile and synchronize companywide and regulatory FDA required reporting?  These are just a few of the big questions surrounding the successful implementation of a Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategies (REMS).

This webinar will present strategies for designing, implementing, and evaluating REMS.  Case examples will illustrate building consensus, establishing urgency, as well as identifying cross-functional partners and leadership. Throughout the webinar possible gaps and potential challenges during the implementation process will be discussed.
