ISMPP Virtual Meeting Rules & Etiquette

Pre-Meeting Virtual Workshops:

Choose from up to 3 workshops on Wed., Sept. 30 (all times are Pacific Time)

Workshops are an excellent way to enhance your meeting experience. Our Virtual Workshops will include viewing a pre-workshop presentation and 90 minutes of collaborative learning. Only $195 for each workshop.

9 am PT - Digital Advances and Publication Planning: Current Practices and Future Directions - $195

Explore the role of digital advances and social media in enhancing the educational value of scientific
publications. Participants will review the latest innovations from prominent medical publishers and assess obstacles and practicalities that have limited the adoption of such new media opportunities to date. Attendees will be encouraged to share their own work experiences with integrating social media into their publication processes.

11 am PT - Visual Communication: Creating Visuals That Transmit Faster and Hit Harder - $195

Science doesn’t have to be boring, and communication professionals can enhance their audience’s understanding through effective use of visual communication. But visual processing alone does not necessarily translate into improved learning. This workshop will examine the principles of visual communication through best practices examples within publications and other medical communication deliverables, including figures and illustrations from documents, presentations, and/or educational materials. Practical guidance will be offered on how to apply these principles to visualizing scientific data using exercises in appropriate use of infographics, with before-and-after examples of the progression from objectives to final solutions as well as how to approach reviewing and or directing their development.

1 pm PT - Publication Planning and Management at Smaller Pharmaceutical/Biotechnology Companies - $195

At smaller companies, publication managers may be faced with generating a new publication function to integrate publication processes and guidelines into the existing company structure. They may have limited budgets and/or resources and may need to perform multiple functions beyond publication management. The publication manager may also be required to establish new processes and policies with cross-functional agreement and demonstrate the internal value of ethical publication practices and medical writing support. This workshop will consist of didactic and interactive sessions discussing the challenges of publication management at smaller pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies.
