About the training
The ability for a human to interact easily and relatively error-free with a system, product or procedure. Manufacturers are increasingly expected to provide a safe product that the user understands thus errors are minimized. Terms such as “user-friendly” and “intuitive” have emerged as descriptors of usability which translate to subjective attributes regarding whether a system or device works and acts in the way the user expects, therefore avoiding frustration and annoyance in carrying out an intended action.
As medical devices become increasingly diverse in their capabilities and the environments in which they are used becomes busier, with new distractions and requirements for specialized training, the potential for use error also increases.
Knowing that the Medical Device Regulation will require possibly more evidence of use-safety, usability and human factors engineering – because there are more clauses covering this area; it is useful to know what to do when you have existing medical devices, software and systems in the market.
GMED North America has created a 2-day training session, to equip medical device manufacturers with the right understanding and implementation of the Medical Device Usability and Human Factors (EN 62366) standard, and the impact of the new EU MDR.
During this 2- day course, you will learn:
- Overview of basic concepts from the key Usability standard IEC 62366-1:2015, and how you should be using this to improve your products, reducing risk.
- The main differences between IEC 62366-1:2015 and EN 62366:2008
- The role of Risk Management (ISO 14971:2007) in the Usability Engineering Process (IEC 62366-1:2015)
- The importance of the Usability and Medical Device Quality Management System (EN ISO 13485:2016)
- The Impact of the new EU MDR on Medical Device Usability and Human Factors (EN 62366)
