Jaclyn Feula, Vice President Global Medical Education and Training, CORENTEC

 

11:45 PANEL DISCUSSION: IMPLICATIONS OF OFF-LABEL COMPLIANCE CONSIDERATIONS ON HCP TRAINING PROGRAMS
Healthcare providers as end-users of most medical devices are responsible for using the product properly and providing quality care to patients, requiring HCPs to depend greatly on clinical education specialists to provide the needed learning platforms to obtain product specific instructions for on-label use. A HCP’s decision to use a device for an off-label purpose could cause serious repercussions as not aligning with the product’s FDA market approval could result in safety issues to the patient. Trainer’s must be aware of how to best define a product’s intended use and also be prepared for how to address inquiries from HCPs regarding off-label uses that arise during a training program.

As medical device companies continue to increase the device’s global presence, clinical trainers are faced with the challenge of delivering impactful training modalities which appeal HCPs across multiple regions. By exploring cultural nuances and understanding potential barriers that can arise due to language differences, clinical trainers are better equipped to craft content that aligns with the learning styles and unique needs of the target demographic. It is critical for training executives to explore the impact of cultural influences in order to mitigate obstacles to retention of training materials, resulting in the delivery of a superior customer experience and efficacious outcomes for the end user.
