The Inaugural meeting of the ISMPP Academy took place in Philadelphia from Sept 28-29, 2023.

The meeting theme was PREP (Practical Resources to Elevate Publications).

Our own head of publication services, Steve Palmisano, followed the keynote presentation by co-presenting a talk titled, “Progress to Practice: Navigating the Non-negotiables”.

The talk focused on the tremendous progress the medical publication profession has made over the past 20 years, including the development of several guidelines and codes of practice (see figure below) that shape much of the compliance-related ‘non-negotiables” we have in our profession today.

For this inaugural meeting, there were more than 170 attendees. With excellent presentations covering extending the reach with publication extenders, going beyond the traditional publication plans, and a major session that closed the meeting, “AI’s Transformative Impact on Medicla Communications”.

Following attendance at the meeting, The Lockwood Group summarized it’s meeting notes into the Top 10 Take-aways.
