CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and benchmarking firm, Best Practices, LLC, will host its second Medical Affairs Roundtable on Thursday, Feb. 13 to discuss how pharmaceutical companies are "Creating An Effective Field-Based Medical Team"
The virtual conference, set for 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), will examine how companies:
- Determine the size of Medical Science Liaison teams
- Hire skilled MSLs
- Identify what corporate executives want their MSL teams to provide, as well as what physicians and thought leaders say they value most from working with MSLs
- Deploy MSL teams based on company needs
- Determine MSL investment levels and staffing
"With the recent changes in regulatory and compliance, companies are leaning on their MSLs to be a key voice to doctors, thought-leaders and other constituents," said Best Practices Executive Director Cameron Tew. "Our roundtable will allow Medical Affairs executives a chance to discuss the changing landscape and learn how peers are handling the increasing pressure to have MSLs do even more than they were two or three years ago.
Tew and Best Practices CEO Chris Bogan will facilitate the roundtable discussion that is based or research conducted with 40 medical affairs leaders from 32 leading life sciences companies.
A third roundtable discussion will be held in May to discuss how Medical Affairs works with Key Opinion Leaders and what changes may be coming in the future.
