    MedComms Networking - 18 June 2019


    Crickey. I'm still punch drunk from last week's MedComms Day (our eighth) and this old bloke is struggling to cope! See what happened at (I'm still tidying so let me know if you spot any errors or anything that looks odd)

    Was it worth it? Why? If not, why not? If you/your company joined in - what did you do? If you/your company didn't join in, why not?

    Frankly it was very tough keeping up. It really did seem like there was a huge amount of activity going on at times, and most of it completely beyond my control, on Twitter and LinkedIn and so on. See these TweatReach stats for #MedComms at showing we reached well over a million impressions on the day. But stop and think about the wider picture... people all over the world were using multiple hashtags, across multiple social media platforms and posting to their own web sites etc etc. How can Teddy and me possibly track it all? I've loved browsing Linkedin, for instance, since and discovering gems I didn't see at the time.

    It went bonkers. Thank you everyone who joined in.

    So now I'm recovering and reflecting and I'd appreciate any thoughts you or your colleagues have to share. Let me know. Either directly or preferably by adding your thoughts to this LinkedIn discussion.

    Along the way, I even managed to run our weekly Wednesday webinar. Tom Davies, Kirsty Liversidge, Chloe Mapp and Damian Reynolds from AMICULUM's Manchester and Bollington offices joined me for an online discussion about life and careers in healthcare communications. The video is now freely accessible.

    Tomorrow, our free weekly webinar features Neil Goldlieb, Mike Nixon, Jordan Jones and Katie Badley from inScience Communications, part of the Springer Nature group. They'll talk specifically about working in client services teams, providing account management and project management skills alongside their editorial colleagues to deliver client solutions. What do they look for in entry-level staff, what training is provided and what are the career prospects? Questions from the audience will be welcomed. Please join us.

    Importantly, next week, Daniel Clifton of Paramount Recruitment will review key findings from the Healthcare Communications Workforce Insight Survey, which ran during May 2019. Everyone welcome.

    Meanwhile here's some reading for your next coffee break...

  • Author Insights On: Transparency and Credibility of Industry-Sponsored Clinical Trial Publications: A Survey of Journal Editors from The MAP Newsletter

  • Pharmaceutical industry launches new guidance on working with patients from the ABPI

  • And one that might have got lost amongst last week's shenanigans. The long-awaited Good Practice for Conference Abstracts and Presentations: GPCAP were published in Research Integrity and Peer Review

    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. And if you know anyone who's considering working in MedComms then send them along to our careers event in London, this coming Thursday. There's plenty of space at this one.
