Fact-checking: what medical writers can learn from journalists
by Sampoorna Rappaz, PhD, Freelance medical writer and editor and Adeline Rosenberg, MSc, Senior medical writer, Oxford PharmaGenesis Ltd
Webinar description: We, as medical communicators, must ensure that all the hard facts and implied meanings in our deliverables are presented clearly, accurately, and precisely. Fact-checking, therefore, is an integral part of trustworthy communication. The practice is simple but not easy. Medical communicators can learn a lot from the journalistic practice of fact-checking. In this webinar, we will cover the interesting history of fact-checking, the basic fact-checking process, how fact-checking is done in science journalism, checklists that can improve the efficiency of the process, expert tips from science journalists, and finally, how we can apply these learnings to medical journalism. Living in a post-truth world means getting your facts right!
