The Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance (SSCP) is a document that is with a unique structure and format: it is intended to include detailed information on a medical device for both healthcare providers and patients and will be available for the public.
Many manufacturers already know how to write an SSCP.
We also have read MDCG 2019-9, but how can we go from good to excellence? And how can we improve a document which will be public soon?

To be able to work on your SSCP you need strong technical skills. You also have to be able to translate the technical documentation into lay language: Are we complying with a regulatory requirement or are we really communicating with the public?
Consistency with the Technical Documentation, different expectations from the manufacturer and the Notified Body and strict timelines are additional hurdles.

This workshop will navigate you through the needed skills to achieve excellence and positively impact the final document.

  • Introduction to Article 32 of EU MDR 2017/745 (Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance)
  • Structure and Content: The MDCG (Medical Devices Coordination Group) Guidance 2019/9
  • How to optimize input documents for more efficient SSCP writing
  • Best practice tips to summarize safety and performance data
  • How to improve the patients’ section of the SSCP

The workshop is addressed to Clinical Affairs, Quality Assurance, Product Managers and Medical Writers.

Attendees’ experience
This workshop is intended for personnel with little experience in regulatory writing, including the Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance, under the Medical Devices Regulation 2017/745 (EU MDR) and with little experience in the preparation of lay summaries.

The workshop will be a mixture of presentations, team discussion, brainstorming and practical examples.
