Joyce Williams, MBA, RAC Del Stagg, PhD Brian Donato, JD
Laura Guy, MS, RAC Regulatory Liaisons, Principal Regulatory and Quality Consultant
Program Summary This program will cover managing crises related to:
1. When the government alleges there has been misconduct in the approval process
2. When a company confronts catastrophic failure in late-stage clinical trials
Problems that arise in the late stages of the product approval process can be very difficult for a company to recover from. This presentation will discuss ways to effectively deal with the government and other involved audiences, as well as how to handle the impact of this type of crisis on the company’s reputation, its management and on individual employees. The process of preparing for and managing crises is described, followed by interactive discussions of some case examples.
