LIVE Online Course - 2 sessions

Gain a deeper understanding of clinical evaluations and investigations to navigate the MDR to ensure compliance

Course Overview

To improve patient safety the EU Medical Device Regulation puts a greater emphasis on sufficient clinical evidence to provide safety, especially for Class III products. As a result, manufacturers need a more robust clinical plan to meet the new requirements, without an effective clinical strategy more costly clinical investigations are needed.

But what are the clinical requirements and how do I meet them?
How can I leverage my current data, literature searches and equivalence to meet the clinical data needs?
What is required to perform a trial?

This interactive course will examine the requirements and design protocols of clinical investigations for new devices with case study examples. You will learn also about post-market clinical follow-up studies for existing products and will look at the impact of the new EU MDR.
