Abstract In this article, we explain why cultural sensitivity is a core competency for medical writers, particularly when working with authors from the increasingly important Asia-Pacifi c region. We provide general and country-specifi c guidance for writers and use the example of preparing a manuscript to show how writers should use “manners and more” when working with authors from the region.
