Course overview

Clinical evidence is key to bringing a device to market and is a very important aspect of post-market evidence gathering to meet the legislation. The collection of clinical data to demonstrate safety and performance is pivotal to CE marking a medical device and the collection of post-market data is key to the continued safety and performance considerations once the device is on the market.

This course has been designed specifically for those who are involved in gathering clinical evidence required for medical devices. It will cover the full range of activities that should be applied during the collection of clinical evidence for both pre- and post- market studies and will also provide delegates with information on the European regulations for gathering clinical evidence and conducting medical device studies and help them to run studies in Europe and other countries. Delegates will benefit from advice and tips from industry experts on the practicalities of conducting studies within Europe as well as the types of clinical data to collect in order to be compliant with the new MDR.
