Results of the 2016 EMWA member survey

Abstract

In October 2016, EMWA’s Executive Committee sent an on-line survey to all EMWA members. The purpose of the survey was to obtain more information about our members, what they do, and what they want from the organisation. 286 responses were received. Over 90% of respondents reported that they read Medical Writing, over 90% reported using the website, and over 70% reported attending the conference at least once every five years. About one-third attended live webinars or consulted the webinar archive. Membership discounts and the freelance directory were less frequently used. Overall, the respondents seemed to appreciate the services EMWA provides, although some areas can be developed further or could benefit from better publicity.
