Competency-Based Training in the Medical Device Industry

Friday, December 1, 2017 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EST

The use of technology in healthcare has increased significantly over recent years to support more complex treatments.  Because of the increasing complexities of medical devices in the use of treatments, there is a greater potential risk of causing harm to patients.  It is imperative that staff who are using medical devices are safe and competent to do so, with both professional regulations and  national legislation to follow.  However, there is currently no standard national approach to training and competency. 

Join us for this LTEN webinar, as we show the approach taken at the UK’s Nottingham University Hospitals in introducing new medical devices and the role companies should take.  David Williams, medical devices clinical lead for Nottingham University Hospitals, will give an example of what worked well, and why, and also an example of when things didn’t go well, and why.

At this webinar you will learn:
•            Why should competency-based training and assessment be made the priority?
•            Complexities of safely introducing medical devices into large healthcare organizations.
•            Examples and outcomes of working with industry.
•            Roles & Responsibilities for trainers.
•            Key principles for ensuring a robust and safe training program.
