Design for Patient Safety: User Testing in the Development of Medical Devices

This guide, created by United Kingdom’s  National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) is designed to provide developers and NHS procurement officers with the tools to “ carry out user testing;  tell you what factors to consider when designing user testing; how to interpret the results; and the information that should be available for purchasers or users of the device so that they can understand the testing that has been carried out.”
