Medical Writing Services  Frequently Asked Questions

Click on frequently asked questions about ProPharma's medical writing services and experience.

We provide medical writing services to pharmaceutical/biotech companies of all sizes (including small, mid-size, and big pharma).

The ProPharma medical writing process is an "author-driven" process that can be modified and customized to meet specific client needs. Our overall goals for each deliverable are to meet timelines, manage challenges, produce a high-quality document, and minimize cost.

At kickoff, the medical writer helps to develop the document timelines, establish team expectations and document strategy, identify potential risks, and establish a risk management plan if needed. During document development, the medical writer collects study documents, collaborates with the authoring team on document content and quality, and follows the communication plan.

The medical writer manages the document review cycles, including comment incorporation and adjudication in collaboration with the authoring team, ensures timeline integrity, and facilitates quality control (QC) reviews, final document approval, and electronic publishing, as necessary.

Yes, ProPharma medical writers collaborate closely with global cross-functional teams during all stages of document development, engaging at a level that meets each individual client’s needs.

In addition to content development, ProPharma writers are also trained to support publications strategy and project management. Our writers will drive timelines, manage meetings, and coordinate with both internal sponsor partners and external KOLs. They can assist your team with everything from researching target journals to creating graphics. They will proactively review Rules for Authors to ensure adherence to the guidelines and can also manage the journal submission. Our team is flexible in providing whatever services you need to support your publications.

ProPharma recruits and retains experienced medical writers, with routine training on our internal policies, SOPs, and work practice documents. Training on client-specific processes is provided as needed. Medical writing leadership mentors the medical writing staff to ensure consistency in performance, communication, and project/time management. Senior/peer reviews of documents provide continuous learning opportunities for writers to ensure quality and internal consistency of our work product. We designate document-specific SMEs who are available to answer questions about process, timelines, documentation, and best practices. We work together to answer questions internally to provide learning opportunities and minimize any interruption or burden on our clients.

ProPharma has also developed an extensive early talent and training program that provides hands-on, mentor-driven medical writing training and support for those interested in becoming medical writers. The foundational training program provides core knowledge and soft skills training (e.g., stakeholder management, communication, teamwork/collaboration, time/project management) through document-specific curriculum, hands-on exercises, shadowing, and direct mentoring designed to accelerate the learning curve and train the next generation of medical writers.
