Dr Safeer Mughal [BSc(Hons) Medical Genetics, 2008; PhD Genetics, 2013) works for Parexel, a multinational life-science consultancy, based at their Harrow centre. At the time of the presentation he was working as a Scientific Writer, and has now been promoted to the role of Scientific Specialist.
During his talk Drugs, Keys and the Latest Fix: An insight into Medical Communication Safeer described the role that medical writers play in brokering information between clients and their intended audience. The knack is to make sure that the information is accurate but conveyed in a way that fits with the current knowledge of the doctors, the nurses or the general public with whom you want to communicate. A transcript is available here.
