This course has been designed specifically for those involved in conducting medical device clinical investigations and post market clinical follow-up studies. The collection of clinical data to demonstrate safety and performance of a device is pivotal to CE marking a medical device. The collection of post market data is a key aspect of continued safety and performance considerations once the device is on the market.
This course will cover the full range of clinical research activities that should be applied during the collection of data for both pre and post market studies. It will provide delegates with information on the European regulations for conducting medical device studies and help them to run studies in Europe and other countries. Delegates should benefit from the advice and tips on the practicalities of conducting studies within Europe.
FURTHER BENEFITS IN ATTENDING:
Participants should expect two extremely informative days with ample time for discussion, questions and case studies. Delegates will:
- Understand the role of clinical research in device development within the medical device industry
- Discover clinical trials methodology in the preparation and conduct of clinical trials of medical devices
- Take away practical knowledge on how to plan, organise and conduct clinical trials of medical devices successfully
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course will be of value to those who are involved in conducting medical device studies (clinical evaluations, clinical investigations and post market clinical follow up studies) and particularly where data may be used to support the CE marking process. Personnel involved in setting up, managing and monitoring studies will benefit from this seminar. Those involved in research and development, marketing and regulatory would enhance their understanding of device studies by attending this course. It will be of interest to professionals at all levels either new to device studies or those wishing to update and enhance their current knowledge and skills. It will be particularly useful to those moving from pharma studies to device studies.
A Certificate of Attendance for Professional Development will be given to each participant who completes the course
