Event description

Description

LifeSciences BC is pleased to host this half day seminar which focuses on the use of software to implement safety-critical functions in a medical device.

When first introduced into the design of a medical device, software often serves a monitoring function to guard against operator errors or lapses. Software may also have a more active role by controlling the application of electrical, mechanical, nuclear, or other forms of energy to patients. Software functionality can significantly increase the overall safety of the device while software defects or faulty usage workflows could have a negative impact on the overall safety of the device. This seminar will describe how to integrate a safety process into a software development process so that potential safety issues are identified and mitigated.

Participants will learn about the fundamental elements of a safety risk management approach for meeting the unique challenges of using software in the design of a medical device. Participants will also learn how these same challenges are being addressed in other industry sectors such as aerospace and automotive engineering.This seminar is intended for company executives, QA managers, senior engineering staff, and other decision-makers who share responsibility for the safety of products that rely on software to perform critical functions.
