Monday 30 April 2018 - Adelaide Convention Centre

AusMedtech, the national industry group representing the medical devices and diagnostics industry sector in Australia, invites you to attend the Regulatory Affairs and Health Economics Workshop at AusMedtech 2018.

While Australia boasts a strong market for developing medical technology, yet the landscape is complex and dynamic. This workshop will explore this landscape, presenting current trends and emerging issues that may affect organisations operating in the medical device industry.

Brandwood Biomedical will lead the morning session, focusing on the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)’s Medicines and Medical Devices Review (MMDR), changes in the European Union (EU) and provide an overview of risk classification.

The afternoon session, led by Sarah Griffin, Principal consultant, reimbursement, Brandwood Biomedical , will discuss prostheses prices and continuing reform of private health insurance.
