The overall webinar was informative and easy to follow and understand. Would highly recommend to anyone who has an active role in vigilance or clinical activity processes at your company. Jannette is a wonderful speaker, who is very articulate in putting things simply, but effectively without losing any necessary detail.

Liselotte Borup, Clinical Trial Manager, Oticon Medical, Feb 20

The course gave me a good overview of the MDR and the reporting of adverse events: the content was good, the presentations were clear and the speaker was very good. She was open to questions, which she answered in the best way possible.

Valérie Jean, Senior Clinical Research Associate, Spineart SA, Feb 20

I wanted to learn more about device vigilance and reporting and I now feel much more confident in putting these tasks into practice in my workplace. Janette was friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable regarding her course content considering the difficulties with the changes from MDD to MDR. I enjoyed the course and found the content to be interesting and relevant. Any questions asked were answered and all aspects of relevance to the group were covered. Janette took the time to find out about each person's job and responsibilities and, using examples, tailored her explanations so they were relevant.
