The 26 May 2020 deadline for EU MDR implementation is
quickly approaching along with the need to conduct and maintain living
literature reviews. As a regulatory professional, you may be struggling to find
ways to meet the new—and vastly increased—requirement for clinical evidence.
With time at a premium and CER experts even more so, you need to focus on
creating efficiencies in the literature review process.
According to a recent RAPS/KPMG survey, a whopping 83% of
respondents cited “remediating and managing updates to technical files and
Clinical Evaluation Reports” as a significant challenge. This webcast will
review simple, pragmatic approaches and tools to focus on the high value work
of CER preparation by reducing the time to complete low value administrative
tasks such as retrieval and management of references/citations and full text
articles in living literature reviews.

concepts are incorporated into the activity.
