EMWA conference in Cyprus

As I write this, it's now less than a week until the next EMWA conference, which will be in Cyprus on 14-18 May.

I'm hugely looking forward to it (not least as a chance to escape all the dismal weather we've been having lately) and the opportunity to catch up with my many friends in the medical writing world. I'll be teaching 2 workshops this time round: one on ANOVA and regression analysis, and the other on critical reading of medical literature.

Many of the accusations of evildoing on the part of Big Pharma are based on anecdote, but what does research evidence show? Listen here to find out. My piece starts about 33 minutes into the podcast.
