    MedComms Networking - 14 June 2016


    Well that was fun, last week's MedComms Day 2016. Wasn't it? What do you think we achieved between us? If you didn't join in - what stopped you? I've started a discussion in the MedComms Networking Linkedin group and I'd welcome your thoughts. Or drop me a line directly.

    It's difficult to know what exactly happened, or might yet happen, as a result. If you look objectively at the data, lots of companies and individuals participated one way or another, but it's clear many more didn't join in at all at any level.

    So now I'm slowly recovering and reflecting, I'd appreciate any thoughts you or your colleagues have to share.

    If it all passed you by, check out what happened at and let me know what you think of what you find there.

    The MedComms Day activity certainly reflected the global nature of the business, with contributions arriving from Auckland to San Francisco via Shanghai, Vienna, Basel, Paris, London, Oxford, New York and elsewhere. I'm keen we do more to engage together with everyone around the world and although it's still early days I'm hoping the library of webinars we're building at will help towards that end. These webinars are freely available to MedComms folks everywhere. Three more were posted this week and are well worth viewing:

  • Know Your Audience: Informed Decision-Making in Congress Submissions featuring Helen Chambers of Costello Medical Consulting
  • EMWA guidelines: the role of medical writers in peer-reviewed publications featuring Jo Whelan, Freelance medical writer, Textpharm Ltd
  • EMWA - what does it offer medical writers? featuring Jo Whelan, Freelance medical writer, Textpharm Ltd

    Our next Brunch meeting, when we film presentations to turn into the webinars, is 6 July in Oxford. Please join us if you'd like to meet the Speakers face-to-face or simply to chat. Rachael Lammey, Member and Community Outreach at Crossref and EASE Council Member, and Pippa Smart, a publishing consultant and member of EASE Council, will talk about the European Association of Science Editors (EASE), their annual meeting in Strasburg last week, and about editorial matters generally. Join us. It'll be fun - and free as always.

    Then our next major MedComms Networking event is 7 July at Alderley Park, Understanding the role of real-world evidence (RWE) in a medical publication plan. The room is filling nicely but we've plenty of space at this one so please, as always, help spread the word and encourage all relevant others to join us. Oxford PharmaGenesis and AstraZeneca are putting together a comprehensive workshop and we've now had confirmation that Miriam Bibi of Double Helix Consulting and Steve Fermer of Adelphi Real World will also join the Expert Panel session.

    Finally, a quick message to pass on. Joshua Sopp of the Life Sciences Postgraduate Society (LSPS) from the Faculty of Medicine at Southampton University is looking for someone who's willing to visit and talk about careers within medical writing/communications. If anyone can help please contact Joshua directly using

    Enjoy your week, everyone.
