BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y., Feb. 11 The International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) is pleased to announce the opening of registration for its 6th annual meeting, "Delivering Value and Driving Advocacy in Medical Publications." The meeting will run from April 19 to 21, 2010, in Arlington, VA, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott.
ISMPP has created an exciting program that focuses on two of the most critical factors that are relevant to all who work in medical publications -- value and advocacy. Both are integral to ensuring that medical publication professionals can continue to contribute to the dissemination of the results of clinical trials with accuracy, transparency, and integrity.
To address these issues, this year's plenary sessions will explore such topics as the impact of guidelines and regulations, including GPP-2; ISMPP's advocacy activities; and insights of journal editors. Unique this year to the journal editors' segment is the rollout of an authors' tool kit that has been developed by editors of top-tier medical journals. As in the past, the meeting will also offer half-day pre- and post-conference workshops and original ISMPP member research presentations.
As Al Weigel, President of ISMPP, noted, "This meeting will not only build on previous conferences, but will also include insights for attendees on how ISMPP and medical publication professionals can help shape their own future by taking a more active role in driving advocacy in their activities."
ISMPP is proud to announce an outstanding group of renowned experts who will present Keynote Addresses on important aspects of medical publications:
