    MedComms Networking - 07 July 2020


    First, a big shout out to Ellie Duncanson-Hunter and her colleagues at Syneos Health Communications who are now sponsoring MedComms Networking activity. Huge kudos to you. And indeed to all the current Sponsors. Without their help I simply couldn't do all this in the way we do it, making so much valuable resource so freely accessible to so many. And so much more is possible. If you'd like to join this elite group of leading MedComms companies, please give me a shout at any time.

    And many thanks to Rob Pilbrow, Bella Santa Cruz and Imogen Allred from OPEN Health who joined me for last week's webinar to talk about what MedComms means for them and the different roles within their teams. Watch the video here.

    Tomorrow, we're talking about Getting started in HEOR and market access medical writing. Everyone's welcome.

    My original plan was always then to take a break from the webinars over the Summer. It's tough delivering weekly webinars! However, we live in strange times and the events business has been hugely disrupted. Before I take a breather, I thought it might be interesting to run an informal event that reflects on what we've learned so far. So, next week we're now running a special, extended webinar. Five sessions, each starting on the hour and lasting for 45 minutes. Come and go as you like, join us for a part or the whole.

    Here's the final line up of panellists; Sam Barnes, Katherine Baria, Trishna Bharadia, Stephane Dazet, Johanna Dixon, Ged Forshaw, Mark Handforth, Alex Morris, Tessa Richards, Matthew Saunders, Len Starnes, Richard Stephens, Nick Trout, Steven Walker, Orla Weir and Andrew Winterburn.

    Are medical society conferences changing? Len Starnes has argued the case for change for several years. In ten weeks we've seen more change than in the last ten years.

    Will patients and others get more involved in meetings of all shapes and sizes if they can simply join online from home? The opportunity is significant. Will it really happen?

    How has the accelerated move to virtual scientific congresses disrupted traditional pharma delegate touchpoints, such as the poster hall presentation and the exhibition booth?

    We'll talk about virtual meetings, with a focus on the advisory board settings and meetings where external experts and HCPs are involved. Doing normal business meetings is easy, but what about when it has to be really high quality?

    We'll finish by reflecting on face-to-face events and what a new normal might look like.

    Please join us. For any or all of the sessions.

    PS have you seen that new Joint Guidance on Virtual International Medical Congresses Impacted by COVID-19 was issued last week by IFPMA, EFPIA and PhRMA?

    Nobody really thinks we're going back to how it was.

    Remember, details of all our activities are kept bang up-to-date at or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.

    Stay safe and well, everyone.
