Integrating Human Factors Into Medical Device Design Control And Beyond Workshop

June 6, 2017 to June 7, 2017
Minneapolis, MN


Currently offering early bird pricing - register today - early bird registration ends on May 5!

Maintaining effective design control procedures is a key element of the quality system regulation. This interactive workshop takes attendees step by step through all aspects of design control, emphasizing how it interacts with other quality system elements and other company functions.

Understanding the user, the environment, and the desired outcomes will, at the earliest phases of development, allow the process to integrate critical findings and expedite a safe end product to market that precisely meets user needs. This workshop will demonstrate how and when to build human factors into a development program with examples and group exercises.

This course has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.
