A Med & Mic™ Extra 12.01.22

Insightful, supportive coaching to help you meet your speaking goals

Hello, Doctor!

The media may approach you for an interview on a medical study.

Here are some general questions to ask yourself as you prepare to communicate information about the study:

  1. Will your communication further public understanding?

  2. Can you put the study findings into context?

  3. Has the study been peer-reviewed?

  4. Can you elaborate on the key facts of the study?

  5. Can you clarify risks and benefits?

  6. Can you translate the findings into practical consumer advice?

  7. Have you identified the study’s funding details?

  8. Have you met the needs of the media?

Over the next month, I’ll go over each one of these points in more detail with additional questions to ask yourself. (CME will be available.) Stay tuned!
