Introduction to Effective Medical Writing

  January 24, 2018  
CfPIE - The Center for Professional Innovation & Education, Boston, MA USA
December 10 & 11, 2018

Course Description - Course runs 9:00 to 5:00 both days (Breakfast and Lunch Included)

Medical writing is both a science and an art. The art of medical writing is to comprehend and present scientific information clearly to suit the specific target audience's level of understanding including patients, the general public, physicians and/or regulatory agencies. Often it is not poor science that kills a scientific paper; rather, it is the lack of clarity and continuity. Poor writing can be very costly to companies and frequently slows the review process of regulatory submissions.

In this 2-day course, you will learn about the different types of medical writing and how to write effectively. We will examine various types of writing including abstracts, regulatory documents, and patient education materials. We will also consider ethical issues that face medical writers. You will gain insight into the design of effective documents and what goes into putting together a compelling manuscript. You will also learn how to keep your writing free of medical jargon and common grammatical errors, while ensuring the scientific integrity of your work.

Who Should Attend

This course is valuable to those who write or review documentation in support of clinical trials and regulatory submissions. It will also benefit anyone who prepares or reviews articles or abstracts about therapeutic products for publication. The course is particularly helpful for those new to these disciplines who wish to understand the scope of medical writing. Typical attendees include medical writers, reviewers of medical documents, clinical research managers and associates, regulatory affairs professionals, project physicians and medical monitors.
