Our latest white paper

Empowering MSLs to deliver better scientific engagements
HCPs’ increasing reliance on the scientific expertise of MSLs is positioning the role as an essential strategic resource for Pharma companies. This trend has resulted in a boom in the number of MSLs across the industry – since 2010 MSL headcount has increased by 300%. However, many Medical Affairs teams remain underfunded and struggle to provide MSLs the support and resources they need to effectively carry out their impactful work. Oliver Spray has written our most recent whitepaper titled ‘Empowering MSLs to deliver better scientific engagements’, which examines three challenges MSLs face in delivering impactful HCP engagements as well as providing proposals to Pharma on how to overcome them.
