Effective Scheduling of Clinical Study Reports (CSRs): The multicomponent CSR requires complex scheduling to ensure no overall slippage of project timelines.  In this article, Sam Hamilton reports on the wide variability seen in CSR scheduling across the industry and shares tips on CSR proposal writing.  This article appeared in The Write Stuff, EMWA’s official publication, in Q3 2008.

I am a freelance medical writer providing a range of writing services, primarily to the pharmaceutical industry. I am a post-doctoral virologist working in clinical research since 1994, and specialising in regulatory medical writing from 1999. In my last salaried position (to September 2006), I managed UK Medical Writing for the world’s fifth largest Contract Research Organisation.

I have contributed widely to the official publications (The Write Stuff and Medical Writing [journal]) of the European Medical Writers Association (EMWA). I post my articles on my blog, primarily to disseminate the information to a wider audience, and to hopefully generate some stimulating debate. If you have anything to share, I would love to hear from you.

If you like what you read, and require the services of a highly motivated, experienced and diligent medical writer, then please contact me through my website: http://www.samhamiltonmwservices.co.uk
