Top Tips for Successfully Working with Medical Professionals

  • Have a clear idea of your aims when approaching medical professionals so they understand why you want to collaborate and what role they would play.
  • Medical professionals are busy people – make sure to make the most of their time and spread the workload fairly.
  • Think outside of your rare disease when inviting participants to medical and scientific panels, to help avoid conflicts of interest and ensure a range of different views are represented.
  • Think carefully about how best to approach your outreach or medical education project to make sure it has the right impact.
