Medical device manufacturers and regulators are increasingly interested in “patient perspectives” on the development of new medical devices, but there lacks consensus on when and where is the best opportunity to incorporate this perspective.  This panel will explore how medical device companies and regulators are advancing the science of patient input and how patients can impact the development of medical devices along different stages of the product development lifecycle.
