How to Design an Engaging User Training Presentation for a Medical Device

Presenting training material about your medical device can be a challenging job. Although your audience may be very enthusiastic and interested, some of your messages may not be very engaging and can be complex. Here are some useful tips for creating a successful storytelling presentation about your medical device.

1. Present the most relevant and updated literature

Users of your medical device should be provided with the most up-to-date and state of the art literature about your device. It is important to provide references to every claim that you make about your device. It is recommended to include the first author’s name, journal, and publication year when citing a scientific article in your presentation, so the audience can look for the source.

2. Create a comparison table between your device and the competitor devices

Many in your audience will be aware of the alternative devices available. Your presentation is an opportunity for you to highlight the advantages of your technology compared to the other similar devices currently on the market.

3. Present case reports

Sharing individual case reports allows you to demonstrate the specific use of your device. Do not be afraid to share the more unique stories along with the generic cases to highlight to your customers the different options or techniques available to them when using your device. Interesting case reports using an equivalent device can also be taken from the medical literature and presented in your

presentation – be sure to provide references.

4. Consult with the regulatory manager of your company

There might be Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPAs) or sections in the user manual of your device that require specific training for your users. Do not miss the opportunity to provide the necessary information to fulfil the required actions.

5. Tell your users about locally approved indications

It is important that your customers are aware that the device complies with the regulatory approval specifications in their home country. Communicate this information to your customers to help build rapport.

6. Great design, great business

You may have created quality content, but if your presentation is not aesthetic, engaging, and readable, then you have missed the mark!

Here are some tips for creating a cohesive template for your content:

  • Use bright colors for the background – do not encourage your audience to take a nap.

  • The minimum font size should be 18 or larger, depending on the size of the presentation room.

  • Use informative titles to help your audience to recap if they fall behind during the presentation.

  • Create your presentation using instead of PowerPoint.

To summarize, creating a comprehensive and efficient user training presentation requires quite an investment and professionalism. A thorough literature review, understanding the clinical evidence of your product, and collaboration with various groups in your company, are essential during the process.
