“Can you minute a meeting in the Middle East and work with the participants to create a white paper on the state-of-the-art of clinical care in a rare disease?”
We travelled to Dubai to assist in the facilitation and minuting of a meeting of leading regional experts. Once back in the UK, we prepared the minutes, and used them as a framework to create a clinical review paper that provided an overview of diagnosis and treatment of the disease at hand. This paper eventually formed the basis of clinical treatment guidelines.
Working with physicians in the Middle East is all about relationship building and understanding how the doctors work together. It is also very rewarding, as appreciation is always forthcoming for high-quality work.
