The Association of Healthcare Value Analysis Professionals (AHVAP) Certification Center is excited to announce that registration for Cohort #3 of our micro-certification program on Medical Device Safety is NOW SOLD OUT and CLOSED. This innovative micro-certification program is the first of its kind in the medical industry and has been developed with input from both the United States Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Our training series will consist of multiple live, interactive sessions, each focusing on a different aspect of medical device safety. Topics will include:

  • Regulatory Aspects of Medical Device Registration, Approval, and Post-Market Surveillance

  • Medical Device Risk Assessment Principles 

  • Ensuring Compliance with Evidence-Based Guidelines for Medical Device Reprocessing

  • Addressing Medical Device Contamination and Outbreaks

  • Steps for Safe Medical Device Evaluation

Whether you are a value analysis leader, professional, consultant, industry partner, or other healthcare professional, this training series will provide you with valuable skills that you can apply in your day-to-day work and protect your patients. Medical devices are complex and an important element of modern medicine, but value analysis professionals and other healthcare stakeholders must be well-versed in the safety aspects of these tools. Invite your facility partners such as healthcare risk management, infection prevention and control, and patient safety to register for this program as well.
