Workshop on diagnostic test evaluations: the pathway of evidence generation

Preceding the Diagnostics North East conference, the NIHR Newcastle In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative (Newcastle MIC) will host a workshop to give some insights in the key steps and methods for evidence generation for clinical tests and medical devices. At the end of the workshop attendees will have a clearer idea of how to conduct research to aid generation of the evidence required to support adoption within the NHS.  The workshop will be held in Lecture Theatre, Ground Floor, Institute of Genetic Medicine, Biomedicine West, Centre for Life.
