Piloting of MRF2 n Aim - to test and comment on quality of form - not to conduct an AE study n 12 teams took part in the piloting of the MRF2 ( Britain, Italy, France, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Japan & USA) n Completed new forms and evaluation questionnaires n Instructions - to take time to understand review process and interpret definitions correctly Maria Woloshynowych, PhD Clinical Safety Research Unit Imperial College London.
