Event Details
Event Details: 

While there has been some progress, gender bias and under-representation of women in cardiovascular medical device trials continues to be a challenging issue. The reasons for this under-representation are multi-factorial and include physician screening of trial subjects, gender gaps in the diagnosis of women with cardiovascular disease, misconceptions on the incidence of cardiovascular disease in women and trial designs that fail to appropriately capture women. The medical device industry has recently partnered with the FDA , advocacy groups, and physicians to develop strategies to address this long-standing issue. An update on the progress to date and current thinking on this topic will be discussed.
