Adelphi Real World – Associate Medical Writer

Who We Are:

Adelphi Real World is a global consultancy in healthcare.  We collect and interrogate real world data to aid the pharmaceutical industry in understanding the management and treatment of specific diseases. This understanding informs the successful development of pipeline assets and the positioning of inline products. Real world data can also be used to leverage Health Outcomes / Economic argumentation through statistically validated publications.

The Role:

The growth and success of ARW in providing RWE has resulted in over 1000 publications over the years. The need to formalise the publication process, and to achieve a consistency and quality across all of our outputs, resulted in establishing the internal Publications Team – to organise, co-ordinate and provide overall management of publications. Historically, publications have been handled individually by the therapy area teams and written predominantly by our externally resourced freelance medical writers. However, due to increased demands a centralised team to achieve higher standards and consistency across the business has been established, now ready to bring an in-house medical writer on board..
