...seamless integration into your teams and operations...
Our Directors have a broad knowledge of pharmacotherapeutics and practical insight into healthcare provision built on many years of ‘big agency’ experience in medical communications and publishing, regular interactions with key experts across many therapy areas, prior clinical experience in hospital pharmacy roles, and postgraduate level education in biomedical sciences.
We have worked closely with global pharmaceutical companies based in Europe and the US, and we know what is required to deliver the best. We take a personal pride in making sure we achieve this.
We understand our clients’ products and goals, and we have the communication solutions needed to support them, the processes required to achieve them and the scientific knowledge and insights to write them.
FOURWAVE provides a flexible expert resource specifically tailored to respond to each individual client’s brief efficiently, cost-effectively, and with focus and commitment.
What you see is what you get. Our Directors are fully hands-on when it comes to client service and project delivery. For larger projects and programmes we use our well-practiced leadership and project management skills and our network of specialist service providers and established independent consultants to build a team that meets the specific requirements of the job in hand.
We are also happy to work in partnership with your other preferred partners, should you have a need for specific skills or additional resources to complete your team.
Our core team has skills and expertise in strategic communication and publication planning, tactical plan development and implementation, medical writing and editing, editorial direction, client services, account direction and project management, business development, pharmaceutical marketing, design, page layout and print.
Our wider network includes a select team of experienced medical writers, strategists, events managers, AV service providers, designers, printers and production specialists.
While we don’t claim to be experts in everything, we do have a proven track record demonstrating our ability to apply ourselves to a diverse range of new topics and challenges, and to work out effective solutions to your medical communication challenges.
With expertise and experience spanning all the essential skills you would expect of your communications partners, our team has worked on long-term programmes in most major therapeutic fields and across the product lifecycle, from early-phase clinical development through launch and beyond.
In particular, we have current knowledge through recently delivered projects in various oncology indications (involving molecularly targeted therapies, biomarkers and diagnostics), immunology (including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis), diabetes, respiratory medicine, cardiovascular medicine, women’s health, and pharmacy practice and technology.
We also have wide-ranging experience spanning other therapy areas — including but not limited to antibacterials, antivirals, mental health and gastroenterology — and specialist data including health economics and outcomes research (HEOR), patient reported outcomes and qualitative research.
We actively follow the latest trends in pharmaceutical development as well as industry and professional standards and regulations for biomedical communication practices and interactions with authors and key experts, to ensure that our work and your projects are compliant with the latest best practice guidance.
We have delivered medical communications services and consultancy to many leading communications agencies and global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
With a proven track record in providing competent, reliable, informed, high-quality delivery, much of our work is through referrals and repeat business within ongoing programmes, so in compliance with contractual and confidentiality agreements we do not publish client lists or specific projects. However, please see our Credentials page for selected testimonials illustrating our clients' appreciation of our work.
