EPTRI Webinar Series: A Journey in Paediatric Medical Devices

Thursday 21 October 2021

EPTRI is organising a series of webinars in the field of paediatric medical devices. 

The regulatory panorama of medical devices is changing according to the need of new laws disciplining this growing innovative field and the new European Regulation on medical devices which is mandatorily applied by the manufacturers from the 26th of May 2021.

The series A Journey in Paediatric Medical Devices: From Regulations to Clinical Case Studies and Patients Involvement’ is composed of three non-propaedeutic webinars that will deal with different aspects of the medical devices field: regulatory, clinical and developmental case studies, and patient involvement.

The first webinar ‘The evolution of the regulatory framework of MDs in Europe’ will be held on 28 October 2021 at 15.00 CEST. It will deepen in the general aspects on medical devices, absorption issues, the new requirements and changes compared to the older one and which are the specific needs to be covered according to the Medical Device Regulation to develop safer and adequate MDs for paediatric patients.

The second webinar ‘A magnifying glass in the world of the medical device development’ will be held on 25 November 2021 at 11.00 CET. It is tailored to the development of medical devices and will cover different medical device fields through the presentation of case studies.

The third and final webinar ‘Health technology designed for children with children’ will be held on  16 December 2021 at 15.00 CET. Versatility is key to the development of health technology for children and young people so that it is adaptive to their social, physical and developmental needs. Co-design and development of medical devices with children and young people is key to adoption, acceptance and trust. This webinar will focus on patient involvement in medical device development.
