Workshop profile:
This workshop would benefit all medical writers currently working in regulatory writing. There are no prerequisites for this workshop. Complementary EMWA workshops include: How to Manage your Writing Project (PTF29), Interpersonal Skills for Medical Writers (PTA12), Establishing Effective Review Practices for Regulatory Documents (PTA15), and Building Medical Writing Teams (PTA14).
Objective:
In addition to the task of medical writing we are more and more frequently called to author documents in a more collegiate atmosphere, writing directly as part of a team who all have access to the working document during drafting. This workshop aims to equip the regulatory medical writer with the understanding and skill sets necessary to manage and work optimally within teams in this collaborative fashion. This workshop will help regulatory medical writers realise the advantages of writing collaboratively and develop the soft skills to successfully orchestrate a group of collaborators.
