Speaker:  Aaron Clarke

Pharmaceutical Quality Management Systems are continuously refined to ensure that patient risk remains as low as possible. In his role at Q&C, Aaron Clarke is responsible for identifying industry trends and applying his extensive pharmaceutical quality leadership experience to establish and maintain practical, risk-based quality systems effectively and efficiently. This year, 2020, has provided a massive challenge with COVID-19 considerations and limitations.  On-site, quality consulting guidance and support has simply not been possible for most organizations. Mr. Clarke has used his knowledge of electronic systems, data integrity, validation, quality structures, evolving regulations, and training delivery to develop and implement effective solutions. These include remote and virtual audits as an alternative to on-site verification. This approach is quickly gaining momentum with Health Canada and other regulatory bodies worldwide.
