Workshop on Medical & Scientific Content Writing-Cliniminds

Cliniminds, announced today one more workshop on Medical & Scientific Content Writing to be held on 25th -26th April 2009 after getting huge response from previous workshops.

Delhi, India, March 25, 2009 --( It is ironic that on one side there is no dearth of clinical research and advances in medicine, while on the other side, the skills that are required to share it with the world and express the results in a scientifically approved manner is being ignored; the field of medical writing.

Medical writing is the composition, compilation, structuring and reviewing of medical scientific information by a specialized scientist, i.e. a medical writer, who was not involved in the actual experiment and not necessarily in the analysis of the research results. The purpose of having a dedicated writing specialist is to ensure the presentation of the data in timely documents that comply in content, format and structure with internal standard operating procedures of the sponsor and with regulatory requirements or journal guidelines for authors.

Medical writing is an established function in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotech industry, because not every researcher has the time and skill to write well-structured and formatted documents that present information so clearly and concisely that a reader can understand the meaning without prior knowledge of the research program. With an increasing pressure to reduce time-to-market for new drugs and increasing standards of market authorization and reimbursement by payors, writing of timely documents that can be understood quickly and easily has become an economic necessity. Hence, the growth of professional medical writing.

Although the term 'medical writing' is very broad, it mainly involves writing associated with clinical trials, scientific literature, regulatory submissions, Pharmacovigilance, and marketing or promotional literatures.

The key objective of this course is to gain an insight into the various aspects of scientific/ medical writing and will help the writers to make a positive contribution to the medical world, through their documentation.
