Medical communication publications are designed to raise awareness of medicines, cosmetics, and technology. These publications ensure that doctors are informed about the role of new and existing medicines and the literature concerning appropriate prescription for specific patient groups. With the increasing choice of medicines available today, practical guidelines and recommendations are increasingly needed to help practicing clinicians to choose the most appropriate product for their patients. Advisory boards, consisting of clinicians, with a solid experience in a specific therapeutic domain, are well placed to provide this advice. The pharmaceutical industry often supports independent advisory boards to consider current issues in patient care and communicate their opinions on how to best deal with these problems. Medical writers are well placed to be involved in advisory board management. They ensure the quality of this type of communication as they have a solid understanding of science and the ethics, standards, and regulations required for medical publications.
