Series Description:

A 2011 IOM report (“Medical Devices and the Public’s Health: The FDA 510(k) Clearance Process at 35 Years”) recommended that the FDA strengthen post-market surveillance activities in order to better protect patients and to better utilize post-market data.  Therefore, the FDA has placed creating a more comprehensive medical device post-market surveillance strategy as one of their top strategic priorities of 2013. 

In an effort to strengthen the industry’s post-market activities, Sharon Kapsch, Chief of the MDR Policy Branch within FDA CDRH’s Office of Surveillance and Biometrics, has helped design this series to provide an intermediate level of understanding to achieve a robust post-market surveillance strategy.  There will be 6 modules covering the following topics in detail:

  1. Post-Market Surveillance: An Introduction
  2. Complaint Handling
  3. MDR
  4. Vigilance
  5. Corrections & Removals (US) or Recalls (abroad)
  6. Overview: Operationalizing Post-Market Surveillance in a global company and Panel discussion

This series is a continuation of our MDR webinar series (also designed by Sharon Kapsch).  We highly recommend (but not required) that you watch the MDR series prior to attending the Post-Market Surveillance series in order to achieve maximum value.
