Description: A critical step in bringing a medical device to market is demonstrating the safety and effectiveness of the product.  This webinar is meant to introduce participants to the role clinical trials play in the development of a medical device and to provide an overview of the process involved in carrying out a clinical trial within a framework of good clinical practices (GCP) and regulatory requirements.  The focus will be on clinical trials for device approval in Canada, United States, and Europe.
