Medical Affairs Executive Strategy

Medical affairs teams are involved in nearly all aspects of communication in a pharmaceutical/biotechnology/medical device organization. Their scope and authority can vary depending on the size of the business. One of the biggest issues medical affairs teams have faced in recent years has been the need to establish standard operating procedures and quality control measures for social media posts. With Twitter, Facebook and other networks in use by virtually all employees, medical affairs teams need to pinpoint who regulates company posts, what information is released and how posts should be edited.

This track will address the management and communication concerns internal teams face as well as how to best improve current processes in order to comply with new regulations and the instant access to information.

This conference is designed for representatives from pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device organizations with responsibilities in the following areas:
  • Medical Affairs/Field Medical Affairs
  • Medical Science/Field Medical Science
  • Clinical/Scientific Affairs
  • Medical Strategy/Communications
  • Key Opinion Leadership/Thought Leadership/Opinion Leader Relationships
  • Research and Development
  • Medical Education
  • Publication Planning
  • Scientific Communication
  • Program Management
  • Quality Assurance
  • Scientific Engagements
  • Medical Science Liaisons

MSL Best Practices

The role of the medical science liaison (MSL) has continued to expand. Previously, MSLs served as the link between their respective organizations and key opinion leaders (KOLs). As subject matter experts, MSLs convey product information to educate the KOL, then relay information back to their own organization. While this has not changed, MSLs are now taking on a more hybrid role, encompassing account/relationship management responsibilities in addition to interacting with clinical and business teams. To maintain the expanding list of responsibilities, MSLs need to be continuously trained and assessed for regulatory compliance and other various roles.

Accompanying the growth of the MSL role, data indicates that KOLs and physicians increasingly prefer to work with MSLs instead of sales or account managers.

The MSL Best Practices track will focus on the MSL's growing duties and on the exchange of MSL training and evaluation techniques in both small and large organizations.
