Case study 1

Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD)

I have been involved with the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) since 2016. GOLD is a rapidly updated evidence-based report that offers guidance about the best clinical practice in treating COPD. I have assisted the GOLD Board and Science Committee with literature searches, reviews, writing and editing the GOLD Report for the past 8 years.

It has been a pleasure to be involved with such a worthwhile organisation and to help make a genuine difference to thousands of people around the world living with COPD.  Preparing open access documents that are vital for the continuing medical education of health care professionals is immensely rewarding.

Case study 2

PainPod TENS machine background research

PainPod needed extensive research of the medical literature to showcase the evidence base for their  transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machines.  I identified over 1,000 medical peer-reviewed manuscripts on the use of TENS for pain relief in a clinical setting.  I then condensed this information into a comprehensive, fully referenced report with over 100 evidence-based marketing claims highlighted through out the document. PainPod were so happy with my report they commissioned me to produce a second report for them on the topic of InfraRed Sauna.

Case study 3

First National Forum on Secondary Fracture Prevention

The Australian and New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society (ANZBMS) were holding a one day meeting with over 30 key institutions represented. The purpose of the day was: “To forge an alliance of all key stakeholders, which then translates the clear evidence for the effectiveness of appropriate interventions in reducing the risk of re-fracture into tangible health benefits for Australians. ” The organiser of the meeting, former director of ANZBMS Professor Markus Seibel requested my help.  I attended this one day meeting, performed record-keeping duties and then prepared a comprehensive report. You can read the resulting report here.

All too often important discussions and decisions made in these meetings are not properly recorded and reported.  Gathering key people in a room for a day is expensive. Having a medical writer attend your meeting can make a real difference to the outcomes achieved following the meeting. I have covered advisory board meetings,  conferences, one-day meetings and many other medical meetings.

Case study 4

Preparing a book for publication – Dr Roger Pillemer OAM

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr Roger Pillemer required assistance to prepare his books “Handbook of Upper Extremity Examination” and “Handbook of Lumbar Spine and Lower Extremity Examination” for publication. I assisted Dr Pillemer with editing his manuscripts, obtaining permissions for re-use of illustrations, finding a publisher and managing the process of publication. These books can be purchased from Springer and there is also a very useful companion YouTube Channel.
