Equity in medical devices: independent review call for evidence

 

“The independent review aims to collect and review evidence as to whether the way in which some medical devices are designed, developed or used may lead to them not being equally effective or safe for different populations based on their ethnicity or other social or demographic characteristics, such as socio-economic status. To date the evidence is not yet conclusive. The independent review therefore aims to establish where and how potential ethnic and other unfair biases may arise in the entire lifecycle of medical devices, and the extent and impact of these, and to make recommendations for more equitable solutions.”
