    Every Tuesday we send out the MedComms Networking email newsletter to subscribers. It includes brief commentary on what we're doing and planning, and highlights relevant news to encourage sharing of information, experiences and ideas and to stimulate discussion. The text and links included below, by definition, were accurate on the day of publication, but may then become outdated.

    MedComms Networking - 20 August 2019


    Happy August. They say "a change is as good as a rest" but I took a break from this newsletter over the past couple of weeks because I was called for jury duty, which was no fun at all! Teddy struggled to cover my absence and, frankly, I came back in the evenings in no mood to work. Still, it could be worse. We met jurors who'd sat for 15 weeks before arriving at a verdict. My advice is, don't think it can't happen to you. If it does, be prepared for more disruption than you'd like.

    Meanwhile school's still out for the Summer here, so I'm even more stressed than usual. Bless 'em! Child care duties call shortly, so forgive what is a slightly rushed return to the weekly newsletter routine.

    We've another busy Autumn kicking off on 10 September with our next annual careers event in Manchester, which is filling up nicely. There's plenty of space, though, so please spread the word and encourage anyone who wants to learn more about MedComms to sign up. These events are excellent. I'm expecting 40-50 MedComms specialists to attend, all happy to chat with attendees about the business.

    Our Autumn programme, though, will be dominated by more free MedComms webinars starting 2 October. We'll continue the weekly routine of Wednesdays at 12.00 UK time and I'm lining up some great speakers and panellists for you. If you've ideas for topics or speakers, or would like to volunteer yourself, please let me know.

    In amongst those webinars we'll have some other gems as well.

    The next of our unique workshops for wannabe writers, Writing skills for medical writers: what MedComms agencies expect on 10 October is already sold out, but I can add names to a waiting list.

    On 14 October I'll run the 2nd of our (now) occasional Zoom meetings of New Zealand medical writers (and guests). The focus for this event is the New Zealand medical writers' group but everyone is welcome. It's strictly informal. If you've topics you'd like to raise specifically let me know, otherwise I look forward to a general chat about life as a medical writer in New Zealand.

    On 21 October, in Oxford, at the start of the 2019 Open Access Week we've another of our Brunch Club meetings. Speakers will present results from recent published research projects around the topic of publication of pharmaceutical industry research and the role of professional medical writers. We'll film the talks for again, but I also want some lively discussion between speakers and audience on the day. Save the date.

    And on 10 December join us for our (now) annual pre-Christmas event, hosted by Stgilesmedical with 'mince pies and bubbly', Involving patients in research and medical writing. Everyone welcome

    There'll be lots more. Let me know your ideas.

    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.
