On 10th April, the afternoon 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 the Biomedicine West Wing Lecture Theatre.
