Congress Coverage

Level:
Foundation
Area:
Medical Communication
Code:
MCF23
Duration:
03:00:00
Workshop profile:
Medical writers working in the pharmaceutical, biotech, healthcare or other related industries who would like to know more about the best practices for medical congress coverage. There are no prerequisites for the workshop.
Objective:
Some of the most common research deliverables (i.e. abstracts, posters, and slide decks) are presented throughout the year at scientific congresses. Although medical writers can produce these documents, they may also need to attend the congress and develop a congress coverage report. Participants in this workshop will gain an understanding of how to develop key resources before arriving onsite, how to use technology to their advantage at the meeting, and how to capture key messages in their reports.
Content:
The workshop will begin with the basics of scientific congresses and consider all aspects of preparation, including pre-congress planning, project management, logistics, and best practices. We will then examine the use of technologies and apps to facilitate gathering information. Finally, the different types/styles of congress reports will be explained.
