Efficiency and Technology Pave the Way for the New Age of Narrative Writing  (On-Demand)

This is an on-demand recording from March 2021

Narratives are an integral part of medical writing. Sponsors sometimes need to prepare large batches of these deliverables in a short period while most traditional methods prove unsuccessful in providing both consistency and quality. This can lead to questions and potential discrepancies in the reporting of a drug’s safety. Fortunately, through the advancement and use of technology and other streamlined writing approaches, there are options to deliver high quality narratives on time. In this presentation, you will gain a new perspective on the future of patient narrative production. You will also learn how to add efficiency in your narrative process through the use of streamlined safety data reporting and implementation of technology.  

Our resident narrative and transparency and disclosure experts will provide the tools and tips needed to ensure quality, consistency, efficiency, and cost-savings imperative to the narrative generation process. We will identify the past and current health authority review process, discuss how to work through complicated or dense data to produce a streamlined narrative for submission, and highlight efficiencies gained through the application of technology into the narrative process.
