    MedComms Networking - 23 February 2021


    First a shout out for the current Sponsors of MedComms Networking. Usually, at this time of the year, I encourage you to give them a hug if you meet any, but that's not so appropriate this year! Seriously, though, I can't do all this in the way that I do, providing access to so many MedComms activities and resources so freely, without them. Just now they're all being asked to continue that support for the coming year. So, fingers crossed, let's hope they stick with us.

    Senior representatives from many of those Sponsors gathered yesterday, online, for another of our regular meetings. It was heartening to hear how healthy the MedComms business is overall and to talk about the support MedComms companies are giving their staff during these disrupted times.

    There's certainly lots of MedComms recruitment activity currently. We're back to around 600 specialist vacancies on our jobs board at, listed by employers and by Recruiters from across the MedComms community, and this week they've been joined by specialist Recruiters, Stonor Recruitment.

    There's a very positive message we can all put out there; for anyone looking for new career opportunities - #MedComms really is open for business! Please help spread that word.

    We're continuing to support wannabes via our various services at and on Monday, 1 March, we'll run our unique workshop, Self-review skills for medical writing success, led by Eleanor Steele. We've a couple of places still left. See Eleanor's short video, in which she describes the objectives of the workshop. We can never over-state the importance of attention to detail when we talk about applying for jobs in MedComms and Eleanor's self-review skills will surely help anyone facing that inevitable writing test.

    Meanwhile, the weekly webinars are working well.

    Last week's conversation with Alice Choi and Mike Dixon of the Healthcare Communications Association (HCA) brought us up to speed on how much that organisation has evolved over recent years and their future ambitions. Watch the recording here.

    Tomorrow, Jayne Packham will explain what's new for MedComms in the 2021 ABPI Code of Practice. Please join us.

    Next week we're talking about Getting MedComms right: navigating the age of the amateur expert with senior representatives from Langland. Annette Keith (Head of Editorial), Drew Owen (Chief Scientific Officer) and Diane Ross (Head of Scientific Strategy) will look into the pitfalls of healthcare communication and how medcomms agencies can help the pharmaceutical companies avoid them. Everyone's welcome.

    Then on 10 March we'll hear about Value Communication in Pharma: What medical communications professionals need to know with Patti Peeples, Founder and CEO of HealthEconomics. Com and Tom Drake, Director and Founder of Global Outcomes Group. Importantly they'll describe the results of the 2nd global Value Communication Survey, which is running now. Please take 10 minutes to fill in the survey from and please encourage all relevant others to do so.

    And, there's lots more coming. Enjoy. Give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.
