Sponsored Symposia at International Congresses: Expanding into Scientific Project Management and Compliance

Level:
Advanced
Area:
Medical Communication
Code:
MCA6a
Duration:
03:30:00
Workshop profile:
This workshop is intended for writers or editors who already work on different aspects of company-sponsored symposia, such as slide preparation, or those who might wish to get involved with their organisation in the future.
Objective:
Company-sponsored symposia (e.g. satellite symposia) are complex events and the medical writer might be involved, not just in developing content or preparing outputs, but also to help co-ordinate the event, secure company clinical, medical and legal review, facilitate slide rehearsals and liaise with the faculty panel. The purpose of this workshop is to consider the separate elements of organising and delivering company-sponsored symposia to introduce the participants to tasks which they might encounter.
Content:
The workshop will start at the planning stage and consider all aspects of symposium preparation, including project management, working with logistics agencies and faculty, developing slides following company and country rules, writing proceedings, compliance with EFPIA and Sunshine Act requirements as well as financial reconciliation.
