Webinar on the Joint Position Statement on the Role of Professional Medical Writers

Joint Position Statement on the Role of Professional Medical Writers: Positioning and Advocating for Writers as Guideline Champions. Join the webinar on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 11:00 AM (EDT) / 4:00 PM (UK).

If you are a professional medical writer, do you see yourself as a 'guideline champion'? Not all are, but more need to be! The AMWA-EMWA-ISMPP Joint Position Statement on the Role of Professional Medical Writers ('JPS') highlights that professional medical writers should be guideline champions. If writers are guideline champions, then they will be regular visitors to the EQUATOR Network website.

At this ISMPP U webinar, you will hear from Caroline Struthers (EQUATOR Education and Training Manager, UK EQUATOR Centre) and Karen Woolley (JPS co-author) about the goal shared between the EQUATOR Network and the JPS, and you will gain practical tips on how you can help the EQUATOR Network and how the EQUATOR Network can help you.

This JPS webinar is a joint educational webinar of ISMPP, AMWA, and EMWA. It will have long-lasting career benefits for writers and managers of writers!

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

- Describe why the JPS encourages professional medical writers to be guideline champions
- Access reporting guidelines that can enhance accurate, transparent, and complete reporting...for almost any type of health research study
- Recall three practical tips that could enhance a writer's career, based on use of the JPS and the EQUATOR Network
