14 January 2009-The Institute of Clinical Research (ICR) is teaming up with the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA) in the New Year for their second joint symposium.
The seminar, entitled: Writing Protocols-collaboration and compromise or conflict and confusion?, takes place on 24 February at Novotel London Paddington and will bring together professionals involved in protocol writing, providing a forum to discuss and debate different points of view.
The day-long symposium will feature a series of thought-provoking presentations led by industry professionals and will close with a panel discussion and question and answer session. The programme is split into a morning and afternoon session, chaired by freelance medical writer Wendy Kingdom and Adam Jacobs from Dianthus Medical Limited.
Dr John Hooper, chief executive of ICR, commented: “This is our second joint symposium with EMWA following the highly-successful inaugural event in 2008.
“We are expecting that our diverse range of presenters and panellists representing the different areas of clinical research from medical writing and project management to ethics committees and investigative sites will spark fascinating debates and discussions.”
Several presentations will take place throughout the day covering topics such as the trials and tribulations of recruiting patients and the details and diplomacy of medical writing for protocols.
A month after the joint ICR and EMWA symposium will see the ICR hold its 30th anniversary Spring Conference and Exhibition. Taking place at the ICC in Birmingham on 17th and 18th March the conference will focus on Essential Updates and Lively Debates.
