Intro to CER Writing

What's Included in the Intro to CER training?

As part of the Global Training Suite, the Introduction to CER writing training is a 10-hour interactive course that focuses on the practical aspects of CER writing. This 5-day course is presented by experts in this field who will take you through the CER writing process from start to finish. The Introduction to CER training agenda is as follows: 

Day 1

The first day of training centers on covering the basics of the MDR and some of the key takeaways for writing CERs. The training then moves on to CER scoping and writing a clinical evaluation plan (CEP). Our day will conclude with a discussion on establishing state of the art. Time will be reserved for questions and discussion.

Day 2

The second day will continue the state of the art discussion, with a closer look at collecting and evaluating benchmark device data. This discussion will serve as the foundation for the subsequent topic, identifying and establishing safety and performance outcomes and acceptance thresholds. Time will be reserved for questions and discussion.

Day 3

Day 3 builds on the safety and performance metrics discussion as learners apply their knowledge to extracting data from clinical literature. Learners explore literature search strategies, data collection and extraction, and summarizing key clinical data. Time will be reserved for questions and discussion.

Day 4

The penultimate session focuses on other sources of clinical data, including vigilance data and clinical and non-clinical data held by the manufacturer. Time will be reserved for questions and discussion.

Day 5

The final day of training will cover analysis of clinical data and conclusions of the CER. A discussion on post-market surveillance and post-market clinical follow-up will follow. Time will be reserved for questions and discussion.
