We support independent clinical research and quality improving projects
If you’re interested in undertaking clinical research or quality improvement projects relating to our solutions or related therapy areas, we may be able to support you.
Our support programmes
Independent research and quality improvement are vital to expanding the clinical and scientific knowledge of medical devices. We are interested in supporting investigator-initiated studies (IIS) and quality improvement projects (QIP) in line with our clinical evidence strategy. Our support may consist of products and/or funds.
We adhere to high ethical and scientific standards and Good Clinical Practice. We also follow AdvaMed, MedTech Europe and APACMed codes of ethics business practice for interactions with health care professionals.
