ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Reducing costs while maintaining innovation in packaging continues to be of top priority throughout the medical device industry as the healthcare landscape moves towards a customer-centric business model engaging the end-user throughout the product lifecycle. Engineers are tasked with the responsibility of creating innovative packaging that will protect lifesaving medical devices throughout the supply chain and lifecycle of the product while also reducing cost and remaining compliant with regulatory guidelines. This year’s conference will build upon the concerns of last year’s event by addressing the current concerns of packaging engineers through case studies, panel discussions and end user small group feedback.
Attendees of this year’s program will be provided with the unparalleled opportunity to discuss testing validation and verification challenges through case studies surrounding good manufacturing practices including identifying where legacy studies can be leveraged or testing is needed. Testing presentations will also address sterilization, shelf life, sample size and unique testing methods available. End user concerns including sterility and ease-of-use will be addressed through small group discussions where nurses will examining and provide feedback on packages provided by attendees.
This conference has been pre-approved by the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.
