MDIC is seeking public comments on its white paper, Best Practices for Communicating Benefit, Risk and Uncertainty. This paper will be part of a larger Framework for Patient Input in Medical Device Clinical Trials aiming to be published in Fall 2020.
The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) is a public-private partnership created with the objective of advancing medical device regulatory science for patient benefit.
MDIC has recently worked to understand the best methods to assess patient preferences for benefit and risk in new technologies. As the Science of Patient Input Steering Committee worked to identify the best methods for assessing patient preferences, they realized there was also a significant need to understand the best evidence-based practices to effectively communicate the benefits, risks and uncertainty of medical technologies to patients and providers.
This white paper aims to be a useful resource for all of MDIC stakeholders, including researchers, regulators, clinicians, and patients.
To view a copy of the white paper and provide comments, please visit the Public Comments section of the website.
The document is open for comments until September 13, 2019.
