New website for Danish medical devices:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The Danish medicines agency (Laegemiddelstyrelsen) has established a new website to deal with medical devices. Information and news on medical devices and pharmaceuticals were previously housed together on the Laegemiddelstyrelsen website. They have since been separated because the target groups and regulations for medical devices are different than for pharmaceuticals, says Laegemiddelstyrelsen. The website, which is primarily aimed at professional users and manufacturers of medical devices, can be located at: www.medicinskudstyr.dk
