Human Factors for Medical Devices (Nov 2019)
Human Factors for Medical Devices (Nov 2019) is organized by Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and will be held from Nov 19 - 21, 2019 at AAMI Center for Excellence (ACE), Arlington, Virginia, United States of America.
This course is designed for quality and design engineers; research and development managers; risk managers; personnel from marketing, regulatory affairs, quality assurance, clinical/medical affairs, and customer service; and government regulators who are new to the application of human factors to medical devices. AAMI recommends this course for professionals who already have a basic understanding of the framework of quality management systems, particularly design control, risk management, and CAPA activities, but need more in-depth information about the concepts, science, processes, methodologies, and practical applications of human factors. It is recommended that human factors personnel who are new to the medical device industry have working knowledge of the Quality System regulation and design controls.
This 3-day course offers participants a comprehensive overview to human factors as it relates to medical devices. It includes regulatory requirements of FDA, specifically the interpretation from the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) Human Factors Team, as they relate to human factors, and the process of applying human factors in design controls during the design of a medical device. The course also includes the regulatory perspective of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and the impact of human factors on pharma.
A basic foundation for applying human factors will be set, with discussions on user models and task analysis; anatomy of use errors; and how task analysis forms the basis for planning human factors efforts. Course content will also include a review of human factors methodologies – contextual inquiry, heuristic evaluations, formative studies, and summative studies. Relevant human factors standards are discussed as well as human factors in the post-market arena. There are hands-on exercises as well as real-life case studies illustrating the application of human factors to medical devices.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
