Since the new Medical Device Regulation has come into effect, both the Medical Device companies as well as the companies that support them (like CROs) are struggling with the necessities for Medical Device clinical investigations.
At the event, you will get a general introduction of the changed landscape and three further presentations that will discuss concrete examples and challenges within programming and statistics in the setting of clinical research for medical devices.
