Close of meeting
The MeDe Innovation conference will be headlined by industry, quality assurance and surgical specialists discussing the importance of ‘Responsible Innovation and the Manufacture of New Medical Devices’.
Dr Suzanne Halliday – Head of Medical Devices Notified Body at BSI Dr Halliday has over twelve years of experience as a Technical Specialist and Quality System Auditor for ISO 13485, CE Marking and certain aspects of compliance for Canada, USA, Japan, Taiwan and Australia. Prior to working for BSI she completed a Bachelors and Masters in Science from the University of Waterloo and a Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Oxford. She has designed joint replacement implants, spinal and fracture fixation systems. She has also conducted post market clinical investigations on these same types of orthopaedic implants. Suzanne has developed and delivered numerous presentations at international conferences on Compliance to the Medical Devices Directive, Risk Management, Clinical Evaluations and Investigations, Meeting Essential Requirements with Harmonised Standards, Post Market Surveillance and Vigilance. BSI is the business standards company that helps organisations make excellence a habit – all over the world.
Professor Tim Briggs – Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Professor Briggs qualified from The Royal London Hospital in 1982 with honours in surgery and a number of prizes. After his senior registrar training he was appointed to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital as Consultant in 1992. His specialist interests are in orthopaedic oncology as well as surgery to the hip and knee. He was Medical Director at the RNOH for 15 years, and was President of the British Orthopaedic Association in 2014. He was appointed as National Director for Clinical Quality and Efficiency for the NHS in September 2015 and has been asked to lead and roll out his GIRFT methodology, developed in orthopaedics, across all surgical and medical specialties within the provider network.
Professor Edward Draper – JRI
The MeDe Innovation Annual Conference is now accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) for up to 5 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
The RCS is committed to enabling surgeons to achieve and maintain the highest standards of surgical practice and patient care. The conference programme has been approved for up to 5 CPD points, which clinicians can use as part of their ongoing development. CPD is any learning outside of undergraduate education or postgraduate training that helps surgeons maintain and improve their performance. It covers the development of surgeons’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours across all areas of their professional practice and includes both formal and informal learning activities. The MeDe Innovation Annual Conference is free to attend, and gives clinicians a chance to connect with academics, researchers and industry to learn more about our current and future projects in orthopaedic medical device manufacture.
Show how your project in orthopaedic medical device manufacture improves patient lives and supports the industry at the MeDe Innovation Annual Conference 2018.
MeDe Innovation is accepting poster presentation proposals that discuss current projects, research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches in the field of medical devices.
Poster presenters will have the opportunity to enhance their projects by sharing their basic science results, innovations and clinical outcomes in a 1-minute pitch at a meeting that attracts over 200 delegates per year. This combined podium and poster session provides an excellent interactive platform for researchers to present their own research work undertaken in collaboration with the wider MeDe Innovation community and receive further recognition. Prizes will be awarded for the best poster presentations.
Posters reporting on joint work between industry and academia are especially encouraged.
Deadline for abstract submission: Friday 8th December
Acceptance announcement: w/c Monday 18th December
Annual Conference: Thursday 18th January 2018
