MDR Requirements for Clinical Trials

In this short and practical course, you will learn more about the multidisciplinary Medical Device Regulation (EU-MDR) guideline. With the MDR toolkit you gain step-by-step insight into medical device regulation during the 3 phases of a clinical trial. In a case-based and attractive way, you will learn about real-time planning and the obstacles and challenges you will encounter during this process. After completion you are able to prove you gained the knowledge to participate in Medical Device trials and to be working completely EU-MDR (2017/745) and ISO 14155:2020 compliant.

Course structure

This course is divided in three different learning units:

1. The background and history of medical device research. This learning unit explains the motives behind the development of the international laws and regulations regarding medical device research, using historical facts as a basis.

2. Three Phases of a Trial involving a medical device. This learning unit introduces the three phases of a research trial: the preparation phase, the execution phase and the close-out phase, and the aspects of the medical device regulation that are in play.

3. Course Exam and Evaluation. The final learning unit contains an extensive overview and summary of all the previous materials in the course. In addition, it provides you with practical information regarding the exam. Completion of the course exam is compulsory in order to receive the official certificate issued by Elevate & Artimed.
