Device registry seminar success

December 11, 2017

ABDR’s first seminar themed ‘Device, Data & Decision-making’, a success

The Australian Breast Device Registry (ABDR) shone the spotlight on device registries during an afternoon seminar on Wednesday 6th December 2017.

A line-up of international and national experts provided unique insight into issues affecting device registry research, attracting delegates representing health service providers, government agencies and research organisations.

The event’s agenda included data harmonisation, global and Australian surveillance of medical devices, the impact of registries on healthcare and modelling for device versus operator failure and finished with an excellent panel discussion on funding models for sustainable device registries, chaired by Mr George Savvides.
