Medical Education Programs
I have written more than 75 accredited continuing medical education (CME) programs for physicians and specialists as well as programs for nurses and pharmacists. Formats include monographs, journal supplements, slide presentations, and online programs. In addition to writing program content, I also write needs assessments, learning objectives, and pre- and post-test questions.
I have also written sales training programs for pharma reps, most recently on migraine, atrial fibrillation, and macular degeneration.
Patient Education Materials
I especially enjoy writing for patients and building my plain language skills. I’ve written patient supplements for CME programs as well as materials to support clinical research trials. These include recruitment brochures, posters, visit procedure guides, ads, radio scripts, and letters to patients. In one recent year alone, I wrote more than 100 such pieces for clinical trials of patients with depression, HIV, ankylosing spondylitis, and inflammatory bowel disease.
My work has consistently included writing detailed summaries (and sometimes articles and journal supplements) for many types of meetings—government and private workshops, strategic planning sessions, advisory board meetings, institutional review board meetings, and professional conferences. Although I’ve done my share of traveling for meetings, all of my meetings in 2020 have been virtual (Zoom, Webex)—some a full-day in length.
Did I mention my love of variety and challenges? New formats, topics, audiences, and therapeutic areas are always welcome. In addition to the materials described above, I have written three commemorative books on medical topics, several physician pocket guides, scripts for an online anatomy course, games for a sales training program, magazine articles, and website content. In 2017, I traveled to South Africa to help write a plan for managing tuberculosis in that country.
