Chris Winchester of Oxford PharmaGenesis presents details of the new AMWA-EMWA-ISMPP joint position statement on the role of professional medical writers that was published earlier this year.

This is the first unified position statement on the role of professional medical writers from three leading professional organizations:

American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) – see http://www.amwa.org/position_statement

European Medical Writers Association (EMWA) – see http://journal.emwa.org/writing-better/amwa-emwa-ismpp-joint-position-statement-on-the-role-of-professional-medical-writers/

International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) – see http://www.ismpp.org/advocacy

The Joint Position Statement describes, for the first time, a global standard for professional medical writers and replaces previous position statements and guidelines from these participating organizations
