    MedComms Networking - 13 October 2020


    Many thanks to Jason Gardner and Orla Weir, of McCann Health Medical Communications, and Katy Demery of Novartis Pharma AG, for joining me on last week's #MedComms webinar. A great presentation about ensuring clarity in medical communications! Kudos. The recording is now freely available, as always.

    Tomorrow, we're joined by Kelly Smith and Amy Ball from Insight Medical Writing who talk about their company, the regulatory medical writing services they provide and the different roles within their teams. You'll learn about what they look for in entry-level staff, what training is provided and the career prospects. We'll reflect on the differences between MedComms and regulatory medical writing activities. Everyone's welcome and we're close to 200 registrations again, which is great to see. If you or anyone you know would like to join us, please sign up here.

    Next week, it's Open Access week 2020!. So, our webinar has been arranged by the team from Open Pharma. Publishing open access saves lives will be a panel discussion, led by Chris Winchester from Oxford PharmaGenesis, and featuring Durhane Wong-Rieger from the Canadian Organization for Rare Disorders, Valerie Philippon from Takeda and Gavin Sharrock from Wiley. Find out why and how you can make a difference within your organization. Take an hour, gather your team, eat some cake - then get back to work. Or play. Or sleep. This should be of interest to everyone working in and around MedComms. Or anyone wanting to work in MedComms. You're all welcome. Wherever in the world you are.

    Obviously I want you to join us on Wednesdays at 12.00 UK time, but there's a tonne of online stuff now happening all around us. Every day. So much choice now.

    This free webinar might be interesting next week. How your country can end medical research waste is on Thursday, 22 October, from TranspariMED.

    And, of course, there's plenty of activity from the specialist industry associations who are all grappling with moving their events online. And how to price them!

    The European Medical Writers Association (EMWA) are busy setting up their virtual conference, which extends from 4-11 November. It includes their Annual Symposium on Friday 6 November, Research Integrity and The Medical Communicator: What We Do When No One Is Watching, which is open to non-members. Details are here.

    The 13th European CME Forum is 4-6 November and priced very competitively. A further discount comes from completing their annual needs assessment survey.

    And the International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) have just announced their European Conference in January will be virtual. Watch this space - details TBC.

    It sure is strange times. What do you think?

    Some more insights into what healthcare professionals really think about virtual medical congresses were shared in a new white paper this week, from Ashfield Meetings and Events.

    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.
