Medical device clinical evaluation

  • 2° EDITION: 15 April 2024
  • Online
  • Italian

Training overview

With the applicability of Regulation (EU) 2017/745, there is a need to review the approach to the preparation of the clinical evaluation, which until now has been carried out mainly based on the guidance provided by the MEDDEV guidelines. The need to submit new documents (such as the Clinical Evaluation Plan and PMCF Plan) and the need to interface with PMS activities certainly make this task more complex than in the past. Although the topic is covered extensively in the new Regulations, to the requirements of which are added the indications of the various documents issued by the MDCG, there is a lack of a unified document that, by summarizing the requirements of the regulations, provides valuable guidance for the preparation of clinical evaluation. The training course “Medical device clinical evaluation” aims to offer a unified view of the various relevant documents, and also to propose a possible practical approach to the preparation of the clinical evaluation.
