One of the new requirements of the MDR is to provide a Summary of Safety and Clinical Performance (SSCP), a document that is completely new to the medical device industry and that is unique in its 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.

To be able to work on your SSCP you need strong technical skills, but you also have to be able to translate the technical documentation into a language that is clear to a lay audience without any medical background. In addition, consistency with the Technical Documentation, different expectations from the manufacturer and the Notified Body and strict timelines are additional hurdles.

This course will give you profound insights into the regulatory requirements for the SSCP, best practice advice on how to prepare the SSCP, as well as insights in common pitfalls and tips on how to prevent them.

  • 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
  • Input documents and review cycles
  • How to summarize safety and performance data from different source documents
  • How to write for a lay audience

Medical writers, Clinical Affairs, Quality Assurance, Product Managers.

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