[Ask the Expert] Safety and Performance

This session’s topic: Safety and Performance Measures and Acceptance Criteria

Do you have questions about how to identify meaningful safety and performance measures for the clinical evaluation? What are the best strategies for the verification of device safety and performance? Are you demonstrating that your safety and performance objectives are appropriate and clinically relevant​? Do you know how to specify acceptance criteria that are used to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk?

During this presentation, President Laurie Mitchell and Principal Medical Writer, Dr. Sarah Chavez, answer questions on how to identify meaningful safety and performance endpoints, ensure they are appropriate and clinically relevant, how to specify acceptance criteria ranges, and more.

Who should watch the recording?

Clearly Defining Measurable Safety and Performance Endpoints

The newest regulations for medical devices, Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 revision 4, set high standards for confirming safety and performance according to the manufacturer’s Instructions for Use. Previously, regulations under the old MDR and MEDDEV were not as demanding. Also, manufacturers are not accustomed to the current systematic process of CER evaluations.  

These relatively new requirements for clinical evaluation extend to manufacturers sending new products into the European market. Additionally, those that are already selling medical devices will have to follow these new requirements. Safety and performance are central components of the evidence-based evaluation process for obtaining and maintaining CE Marking for MDR 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 rev 4. Consequently, medical device manufacturers felt the pressure to comply by May 2021.

This session’s topic: Safety and Performance Measures and Acceptance Criteria

Do you have questions about how to identify meaningful safety and performance measures for the clinical evaluation? What are the best strategies for the verification of device safety and performance?

During this 45-minute Q&A session, our President Laurie Mitchell answers questions on how to identify meaningful safety and performance endpoints. In addition she discusses how to demonstrate that S&P endpoints are appropriate and clinically relevant​, as well as how to specify acceptance criteria to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk.

[Ask the Expert] Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria

This session’s topic: Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

Are you looking for strategies for the verification of device safety and performance in the clinical evaluation? Are you struggling to define device safety and performance objectives? During this 45-minute Q&A session, our President Laurie Mitchell answers questions regarding how to identify meaningful safety and performance endpoints. In addition, she discusses how to demonstrate safety and performance objectives are appropriate and clinically relevant as well as what acceptance criteria is and how to define it.

Who should watch this webinar?

Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and regulatory writers who are tasked with the development, writing, review or approval of Clinical Evaluation Reports for EU MDR submission, or anyone interested in learning more about MDR requirements for CERs. If you attended our hour-long webinar on August 25, but we did not answer your questions we encourage you to attend to get your questions answered on this topic.

Clearly Defining Measurable Safety and Performance Endpoints

All medical devices selling in Europe must have a Clinical Evaluation Report (CER). Specific and measurable safety and performance endpoints are paramount for an acceptable CER. However, many small medical device manufacturers are struggling to adequately define and subsequently document measurable safety and performance endpoints, especially in the literature review, to support an evidence-based evaluation

The newest regulations for medical devices, Medical Device Regulation (MDR) 2017/745 and MEDDEV 2.7/1 revision 4, set high standards for confirming safety and performance according to the manufacturer’s Instructions for Use. Previously, regulations under the old MDR and MEDDEV were not as demanding. Also, manufacturers are not accustomed to the current systematic process of CER evaluations.

[FREE WEBINAR] Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

Click here to watch the recording of this webinar.

This webinar is presented from the point of view of seasoned MDR-compliant CER medical writers. Criterion Edge discusses strategies for the verification of device safety and performance in the clinical evaluation. Next, we teach you how to identify meaningful safety and performance measures for the clinical evaluation and define parameters to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk.

Key Takeaways:

Based on the state-of-the-art

  • Identify meaningful safety and performance endpoints (measures/objectives) 
  • Demonstrate that safety and performance objectives are appropriate and clinically relevant 
  • Specify acceptance criteria that are used to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk 

Who Should Watch:

  • Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and regulatory writers who develop, write, review or approve Clinical Evaluation Reports for EU MDR submission. Additionally, anyone interested in learning more about MDR requirements for CERs is encouraged to watch as well. Finally, we encourage viewers from the IVD industry as well, as the content is relevant to IVDR requirements, which align closely with MDR.

Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

Clinical Evaluation: Measurable Objectives and Acceptance Criteria to Verify Device Safety and Performance

In this presentation we discuss strategies for the verification of device safety and performance in the clinical evaluation. Our seasoned CER medical writers are rooted in MDR-compliant practices. Likewise, this presentation will help you identify meaningful safety and performance measures for the clinical evaluation. In addition, we will define parameters to determine the acceptability of benefit-risk. Afterwards, we will have about 10-15 minutes to answer any questions you may have on this topic.

Who should watch the recording?

Those Regulatory, Quality and Clinical leaders and teams who develop, write, review or approve CERs for EU MDR submission. Anyone interested in learning more about MDR requirements for CERs is encouraged to come too. We encourage attendees from the IVD industry to attend as well, as the content is also relevant to IVDR requirements, which align closely with MDR.
