    MedComms Networking - 19 September 2017


    "Thanks once again for organizing the MedComms careers event. The advice I received was truly invaluable and it has made me even more determined to pursue a career in scientific communications."

    So said a PhD students after last week's Careers Event in Manchester. Many thanks to all participants but in particular to Jane Smith and Dominika Bijos of AMICULUM, and Julia Walton of Media Contacts, for excellent presentations. Their slides are available online. I'm working on dates for next year's events and meanwhile I'd welcome more contributions for

    This week we've added three more free #medcomms webcasts to the library at for you, as follows:

  • Medical device communications and compliance: an update - Sarah Dunnett, Independent Medical Operations Consultant, explains how the medical device industry is developing its own codes of ethical business practice and how an increased focus on compliance is inevitable.
  • Pharma websites and the ABPI code - in her second webcast, Sarah Dunnett explains the compliance environment in the UK as it affects pharmaceutical industry websites and presents recent cases reviewed under the ABPI Code of Practice.
  • Medical Meetings: Compliance success and failures - Andrew Winterburn, Director of 3Sixty Event Consulting, reviews the challenges faced by the medical meetings industry and argues that compliance to regulatory codes is an opportunity, not a barrier, to delivering high value meetings.

  • There's great content in all those talks and you can access them freely at any time, from wherever you are and whenever you like. Organise your own lunch and learn events and stream the videos to use them as the basis for discussion about the practical implications for your own projects. These webcasts should be great training aids. At least I think so - what do you think? I know the speakers would love to hear from you if you've any questions and the webcasts all include contact details to follow up as needed.

    Talking of great content - and everyone everywhere having free access to it - our Second MedComms Virtual Meeting is shaping up well. More than 100 people have already registered and there's no limit to numbers, so sign up now to join us at 13.00 BST on 18 October. Panellists Tiberio Catania, Chief Commercial Officer, EPG Communications Group and Sian Williams, Executive Officer, International Primary Care Respiratory Group have now been joined by Frances O'Connor, Business Unit Head, Digital Medical Communications and Dr Lauri Van Der Poel, Paediatric Allergist. We're waiting for one more panellist to confirm and we'll have a completed line up. Again I'd encourage you to get some cake in and gather your colleagues together and participate as a group.

    The webinar will include a presentation of key insights from a new study on Scientific Meetings in the Digital Age: The what, where, when and how of evolving HCP demand and pharma industry supply.

    Enjoy your week.
