What’s the Difference Between Med Ed and Medical Communications?
Well, frankly, not much.
Medical education (med ed) agencies are virtually the same as medical communications agencies, and at Rx Communications we call ourselves by either term. Some med ed agencies focus on delivering marketing & training materials that help pharmaceutical and medical devices companies educate patients, subscribers and payers not only about their product but also about disease awareness. Other medical communications agencies may concentrate on developing the scientific platform for key opinion leaders (KOLs), which would include scientific and clinical journal publications as well as congress materials. Yet others may focus on clinical trial documents and regulatory materials. With our range of writer expertise and superb project management, we can manage it all. We deliver quality clinical and pre-clinical study protocols, reports and investigator materials, alongside medical communications and medical education in whatever format our clients want.
Our only criterion is that the project in question has a valid scientific foundation so that whatever we do adds to an evidence base that supports and encourages good healthcare information and decision-making.
