    A Conversation with Doug Altman

    This informal Q&A-based discussion, held at the Magdalen Centre, The Oxford Science Park and led by Professor Doug Altman, gave us all an opportunity to explore and reflect on the challenging pathways that neeed to be navigated from data collection to publication and provided an opportunity to muse on how dissemination of scientific data will be best achieved in the future. Doug also provided insight in to the background and current work of the EQUATOR Network, based here in Oxford. As usual, the meeting not only served as a valuable educational opportunity but also allowed plenty of time for networking with colleagues from across the MedComms business.
