Clinical Evaluation for Medical Devices
This one day course is designed to support manufacturers by confirming the information necessary to demonstrate clinical safety and performance of their product in accordance with the requirements of the European Medical Devices Directive.
On completion of training, manufacturers will be able to determine if a clinical trial is required, prepare a clinical evaluation report including literature review and determine requirements for post-market clinical follow-up and post-market surveillance to support continuing compliance.
Who should attend?
- Medical device R&D engineers and scientists
- Clinical and regulatory affairs professionals.
What will I learn?
On completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Determine whether or not a clinical investigation is required for their device
- Prepare a clinical evaluation in accordance with MED DEV 2.7.1 and GHTF Guidance Documents
- Implement risk evaluation pre/post review
- Establish design and intended use equivalence with competitor and pre existing designs
- Identify data available from the clinical literature
- Supply and prepare documentation relating to clinical investigations that meets Notified Body requirements (if clinical investigation was deemed necessary and completed)
