Clinical Evaluation for Medical Devices

- based on MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4 and the requirements within the MDR

During this two-day course you will get a good insight into the key steps of performing a Clinical Evaluation and how to fulfill the requirements. The course is focused on practical aspects of Clinical Evaluations with group discussions, case studies and examples.

Course description:

This course provides practical guidance on how to perform a Clinical Evaluation, how to write both plan and report, and discussions on how to make it fit your device while meeting the requirements. We will go through the stages of the Clinical Evaluation process (scoping, identifying data, appraise data and analysis) including practical tips on how to do the systematic literature review.

During the course you will also go through how to grade and weigh the validity of clinical data. We will also highlight the major changes in relation to the new Medical Device Regulations (MDR). Post market clinical follow-up (PMCF) is discussed, with rationale for when it is not needed.
