This book is for the clinician who wants to write. It is for the physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner who sees patients and who wants to contribute to the medical l- erature. You may be an assistant professor aspiring to p- motion or a clinician in private practice who seeks the personal enrichment that writing can bring. If you are new to medical writing or even if you have been the author of some articles or book chapters and seek to improve your abilities, this book can help you. Who am I that I can make this assertion and write this book, both fairly presumptuous? Here’s my reasoning. As a practicing physician, writing has been my avocation; unlike the authors of many other writing books, I am not a journal editor. Over 14 years in private practice and 26 years in a- demic medicine, I have written all the major models described in this book: review articles, case reports, edito- als, letters to the editor, book reviews, book chapters, edited books, authored books, and reports of clinical research st- ies. Most have been published. Not all. Perhaps my most signi?cant quali?cation is not that I have managed to p- duce a lengthy curriculum vitae. In my opinion, what is more important for you, the reader, is that I have made all the errors. That’s right, the mistakes.

This book describes the authors’ standard or ‘best’ practices used in writing regul- ed clinical documents for the drug and biologics industry. The fundamental premise of this book is that the end (documents submitted to a health authority) is dep- dent on the beginning (the planning and strategy that go into organizing written documentation). Each regulatory document inherently exists within a constellation of related documents. This book attempts to show the relationships between and among these documents and suggests strategies for organizing and writing these documents to maximize ef?ciency while developing clear and concise text. At all times, and irrespective of applicable laws and guidelines, good communication skills and a sense of balance are essential to adequately, accurately, and clearly describe a product’s characteristics. At no time should the reader perceive these suggestions to be the only viable solution to writing regulatory documents nor should the reader expect that these suggestions guarantee product success. The audience for this book is the novice medical writer, or those who would like to explore or enhance regulatory-writing skills. We assume the reader will have a basic understanding of written communication, but little experience in applying this skill to the task of regulatory writing. Extensive knowledge of science, clinical me- cine, mathematics, or regulatory affairs law is not required to use the best practices described in this book.
