    Flash survey - the need for Professional Indemnity (PI) for MedComms freelancers
    October 2014

    Not for the first time, there is a lively ongoing discussion amongst MedComms Freelancers on Linkedin about the need for Professional Indemnity (PI). Do they need it and if so for what? This survey was by no means a robust study but was intended to simply provide a snapshot of wider opinion and experience from amongst the community. Hopefully everyone will learn something from it. We invited participation via the MedComms Networking Community, and from members of the MedComms Networking Linkedin Group and the MedComms Workbook Linkedin group.

    On 29 April 2014 we ran a MedComms Networking meeting in Oxford and asked for some help from participants as well as the wider MedComms Community.
