DUBLIN, Mar. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4m4gr3/medical_device) has announced the addition of the "Medical Device Clinical Studies - Understand How to Conduct Pre and Post Market Medical Device Clinical Studies (Course, London)" conference to their offering.
The Medical Device Clinical Studies Course will take place on the 1st & 2nd April 2014 at the Rembrandt Hotel, London
BENEFITS OF ATTENDING THIS TWO DAY PRACTICAL COURSE:
- Understand the effect of regulatory requirements on medical device clinical studies
- Clarify what is involved in a Clinical Evaluation (Literature Review)
- Discover how to design pre market and postmarket clinical follow up studies
- Know what documentation is needed and what should go in a study master file

- Discuss how to prepare a paper or presentation for publication and marketing
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

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
