Detecting Trends in Medical Device Complaints

When device users complain, those complaints must be passed on – to the FDA, the EU and other regulators. Formats must be followed to the letter. And they vary from regulator to regulator. It’s a lot to keep track of.

The FDA’s QSR. International standards ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 13485:2016 ... The EU Vigilance system and the draft EU Medical Device Directive (MDR) ... Couldn’t you use help with your complaint reporting systems?

Join us for a training session that provides the tools to set up and maintain a smooth-running complaint reporting system.

You’ll learn the trend analysis method the EU Vigilance system recommends ... master classification systems including definition of a complaint, an ISO standard for coding adverse events, FDA coding for MDRS and coding derived from risk management files ... and, as a special bonus, receive a technical description of analysis methods that includes guidance on their use.

Here are just a few of the specific areas you’ll cover in 90 fast-paced minutes:

  • Systems in use for analyzing, classifying and coding complaints
  • FDA-specific coding for MDRs
  • An ISO standard on coding adverse events
  • Coding derived from risk management files
  • EU-specific requirements for trend reporting
  • The method from the GHTF guidance document  
  • Linking complaints, coding, and risk management
  • Using trending information for corrective and preventive action
  • And much more!
