Risky Business: Newton's Tree Delivers First Clinical Risk Management in AI Course at the Royal Society of Medicine

On May 22nd 2024, Newton's Tree, sponsored by Vita Healthcare, delivered our inaugural Clinical Risk Management in AI course at the Royal Society of Medicine in London. The race towards adopting medical AI has meant that clinical risk management has failed to keep up, and AI is often unknowingly embedded in medical devices or otherwise escapes traditional risk management processes. This CPD accredited, advanced training session aimed to bridge the gap between artificial intelligence and clinical risk management, offering a comprehensive agenda designed to equip participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of AI in healthcare.

Participants engaged in a range of discussions and activities, covering topics such as regulatory frameworks, risk assessment and mitigation, and risk management standards (DCB0129, DCB0160, ISO14971). Case studies for both diagnostic and LLM based AI applications were workshopped to build confidence in managing clinical AI projects in the real world.

We couldn’t have asked for a better audience: ranging from clinicians, consultants, researchers, industry professionals, founders and innovators, they brought their diverse experiences to the table. The feedback highlighted the course's ‘interactive and supportive environment’, and the case-based discussions made the topics ‘more exciting and pragmatic’. Thanks to the attendees, we also received constructive feedback and additional topics we are excited to incorporate into future sessions.

Due to high demand, we will be delivering another Clinical Risk Management in AI course on Wednesday 18th September 2024.
