OCT medical writers will participate in the EMWA Autumn Conference 6-8 Nov. 2014

OCT medical writers are praparing to take part in the 39th European Medical Writers Association conference next month.

This is not the first time OCT medical writers devote their time to obtain new knowledge and advance their skills at the spring and autumn conferences organized by the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA).

EMWA was founded in 1989 as a non for profit organization in order to unite, train and support medical communicators in Europe. With more than 1,000 members from 39 different countries in and outside Europe, two times a year EMWA conducts networking events with active discussions and professional training and seminars. 

This autumn, the 39th conference will be held in Florence, Italy from 6th to 8th of November 2014.

OCT will be represented by the three members of our medical writers’ team: Eugenia Radkova, Anastasia Porozova and Ksenia Starodubtseva, who will attend the major part of the seminars and sessions at the event’s agenda. 

Within two days, the conference’s trainers and speakers will deepen into such topics as Advanced Clinical Study Design, CTD Clinical Overview, Critical Appraisal of Medical Literature, 

Manuscript Writing, etc., to cover both foundation and advanced level of the audience.

All of OCT medical writers have scientific and medical background and minimum 7 years’ experience in the sphere of medicine and clinical trials. Each of the specialists has profound expertise in different therapeutic areas, including oncology, endocrinology, cardiology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, rheumatology, ophthalmology, women’s health and others, thus forming a strong team of skilled specialists who take responsibility to prepare the right designs of clinical trials for different types of medical products, including biosimilars and biobetters.

Both big pharmaceutical companies and small and mid-sized biotechnology firms often address OCT for medical writing as a stand-alone service, and our colleagues have proved themselves as strong professionals who are able to meet the sponsor’s requirements, on the one hand, and work out documents in accordance with the European, international and local standards and rules, on the other, both at the same time. More than 30 clinical study protocols prepared by our medical writers have been successfully approved by the state authorities in the countries of OCT operation.

  • Consulting on the study design
