With pharmaceutical companies outsourcing more medical/regulatory writing activities, the need for medical writing service providers is growing. The ultimate goal of outsourcing should be to build a productive, long-term relationship with a core team of writers who are an integral part of a clinical team. This session is of relevance to both medical writing departments and outsourcing departments in order to discuss and find ways sponsors can be more effective at bringing vendor medical writers’ particular skill sets to bear and help clinical teams prepare their regulatory documentation more efficiently.

Learning Objectives

Discuss what success looks likes and the benefits of a strategic partnership; Describe the role of the vendor medical writer and project manager in partnership with a pharmaceutical sponsor.
