While aspiring medical writers and editors must have the skills, education, and motivation to succeed, one of the greatest qualities is the ability to interpret, analyze, and view information at both comprehensive and granular levels. Interprofessional healthcare leaders understand their role as well as the roles of their co-workers and other teams in order to provide high-quality service and products to the clients and stakeholders. Although the standard operating procedures differ at every company, the publishing cycle repeats itself and becomes routine with practice.

This webinar aims to describe how the publishing process works from beginning to end and where your role is in relation to others involved in the corporation or organization.

Learning Objectives:
To discuss and compare the publishing cycle process in various corporate healthcare settings in order to gain insight into the medical writing and editing field
To identify the job responsibilities and roles of medical editors and writers throughout the publication process to describe how these individuals work with other key players
To assess the level of contact that medical editors and writers have with subject matter experts, business owners, and editorial staff
