Formatted abstract
Rachel Hendrick makes several important points, but the point she makes about the integrity of medical writers is a key one…and rather refreshing! If we don’t want ghosts in the machine, don’t let them in. If we really care about integrity in the literature (and we’re willing to face the reality that many authors have limited time or writing expertise), then we need to encourage the use of professional medical writers.
