Top Five Myths of Deviation and CAPA Systems

NSF Health Sciences

'How to Simplify for Improve your Deviation and CAPA Systems' is one of NSF's most popular in-house courses. The company provides simple tools and techniques that dramatically improve efficiency, while also dispelling some myths. Here is a sample of some of the common myths.

Myth 1 - every deviation has a 'root cause'

One of the biggest failings in most deviation investigations is the tendancy to look for just one 'root cause'. A single event that led to the deviation, 'human error', or 'procedural non-compliance' are some of the most common.
