Episode 2: Navigating the Non-negotiables

Prompted by historical flaws and suboptimal approaches, medical publications practice has evolved considerably over the last 20 years. Approaches to medical publications today are governed and regulated by a set of principles designed to ensure integrity, transparency, and an ethical approach. However, for those who are new to medical publications, it may not be clear where we started and how we have arrived at these principles.  Join our guest host, Steve Palmisano and guest Robert Wright as they continue to discuss this topic from their plenary session at the ISMPP 2023 Academy meeting.
