Writing for Patients: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How?
With an ever-increasing drive towards patient centricity in healthcare, many of us will have the opportunity to be involved in direct patient engagement or education at some point in our careers. Writing for patients can be rewarding because we can see how our work enables people to become more informed and active participants in their healthcare and can improve outcomes. We use different skills when writing for patients versus writing for healthcare professionals and other audiences, and different rules, best practices and regulations apply. In this webinar we join Medical Communications and Patient Recruitment team members from IQVIA to discuss life writing for lay audiences. From supporting clinical trial participants within a clinical research environment to supporting patients in managing their medications and conditions, we consider what is needed to do this effectively.
And we answer questions from the audience.
It should be of interest to anyone who is looking for insights into MedComms as a career and how to maximise their chances of gaining an entry-level job.
The webinar is free of charge and, all being well, a recording will be posted afterwards at NetworkPharma.tv.
Note we are allowing 60 minutes for the webinar and we always aim to finish promptly on time.
MedComms Networking Webinars will be run every Wednesday at 12.00 midday UK time from 02 February through to 13 July 2022. Topics will range widely, but the aim is always to be relevant to people working in and around MedComms, by which we mean medical communications, medical education and medical publishing, and anyone who wants to start.
