CMPP success at Fishawack

Posted on Nov 11, 2011

Knutsford, UK — Fishawack Communications has achieved 100% success among our team in recent examinations for Certified Medical Publication Professionals (CMPP).

Six of our Editorial Team qualified for the CMPP credential, which was developed by the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) as "a mark of accomplishment in strategic, tactical, and implementation skills, and denotes excellence in ethical publication planning".

Jackie Bannister, Tim Collinson, Phillippa Curran, Toni Lappin, Christina Mackins-Crabtree and Tamzin Redston join colleagues across the Fishawack Group who have previously qualified for the CMPP credential. ISMPP’s credential "certifies expertise as a medical publication professional, proficiency in good publication practices, commitment to ethical and transparent data dissemination standards, and leadership in upholding and fostering integrity and excellence in medical publications".

"Every one of our new CMPPs has many years of experience of all components of medical publications, as well as broader medical communications, and it is great to have their expertise and professionalism recognized," said Gail Flockhart, Managing Director. "Our clients expect us to lead and champion best practice across the various disciplines of medical communications, and our success in the CMPP examinations demonstrates the quality and commitment of our publication specialists."
