Veterinary Medical Writing

Abstract

Like many medical writers, I started in another career first. For me, it was practising veterinary medicine in a clinic, then going into clinical research in humans, and then on to medical writing. Designing clinical trials, sample size calculations, and critically analysing literature became my passion along the way. But the more I learned, the more I realised that in veterinary medicine, we often base our treatment decisions on very limited information. Naturally, there is less money available for clinical studies in veterinary medicine compared to human medicine, so published studies often involve low subject numbers. Such small studies are commonly not powered for clinical safety endpoints, are subject to bias, and could be seen as hypothesis-generating only.
