Announcing a new subgroup for journal editors

We are launching a new subgroup for health and medical journal editors in Australia and New Zealand. This group aims to provide a community for networking opportunities, professional development and a forum to consider issues facing biomedical journals, particularly in the Australasian region.

Who can join?

People working with or at these journals such as editorial assistants, production managers, publishers.

Only members of AMWA may join this subgroup.

In discussion with Dr Ben Bravery - 9 February 2023 in Sydney

You are invited to hear from Dr Ben Bravery, the author of 'The Patient Doctor', on Thursday 9 February 2023 from 6pm - 8pm. This event is hosted by the Australasian Medical Writers' Association and is open to all.

Ben will be talking about his experience as a cancer patient, and how this has impacted how he now interacts with the healthcare system as a doctor. Ben is a strong advocate for putting the patient at the heart of healthcare. This event will also be an opportunity to network and socialise with medical writers.
