Medical writers are under increased pressure to produce submission documents within very short timelines. Complications include too many reviewers, senior management reviews coming in late in the process, and multiple additional analyses resulting in new tables and figures. This session will highlight strategies that are within the sphere of influence of the medical writer.

Learning Objectives

Identify how to apply influencing skills and strategies that a medical writer can use to prevent issues that derail efficient submission document production; Describe areas the medical writer can positively influence during submission planning.
