    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 The text and links included below, by definition, were accurate on the day of publication, but may then become outdated.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 - 24 July 2018


    I'm giving this weekly newsletter a rest over the next couple of weeks. What passes for "normal" service will resume on 14 August. Meanwhile I'm here throughout as needed, of course, if you've questions I can help with or any suggestions for future activities we can pursue together that will benefit this MedComms community. There are plenty of plans being discussed for the Autumn, and indeed I'm already planning for next year, but there's always room for more. I'll happily do what I can to support anything relevant, so give me a shout any time you have any ideas.

    It'll be a busy September with our next careers event in Manchester on 13 September, our 8th Sponsors' meeting in London on 24 September and another of our unique freelancers' workshops on 26 September in Oxford. I'm looking forward to all of them. They're all well-established events that have proven to be valuable but I'll admit to being particularly intrigued by the Sponsors' meeting when we'll be joined by Leslie Galloway, Chairman of the Ethical Medicines Industry Group (EMIG). It should be a fascinating insight in to what is happening, within and around our industry, about the Brexit plans, whatever stage those are at by then.

    In addition, in September I know Jen Lewis is organising another of her regular Informal get-togethers for Freelancers from East Anglia and also further afield, on 10 September (contact Jen directly for more details) and, further afield, Steve Walker and his team at Stgilesmedical are organising another of their informal MedComms Forums in Berlin, on 26 September (Kaffee und Kuchen anyone?).

    If you know of other events that are relevant to MedComms, anywhere in the world, do please let me know. I'm always happy to do what I can to help spread the word.

    Steve Walker and his team at Stgilesmedical are keen advocates of the need for more training for medical writers and they'll be running their second two-day workshops for new researchers, medical writers and editors in Berlin, 11-12 October. They have also generously offered to host a free-to-attend MedComms Networking event at their London office on 18 December. Optimising training for medical writers will be an opportunity to tackle an important, ongoing topic for the MedComms community. But it will also be an opportunity to relax with your peers, to celebrate the year that is ending and look forward to the year to come. The aim is to explore aspects of training for new writers and advanced practitioners who are seeking to progress and diversify. We will also look at different areas such as regulatory and medical device writing. If you'd like to join us on the day then sign up in the usual way, simply by emailing me directly and I'll add you to the list. Everyone's welcome. If you have suggestions for specific topics to cover during the afternoon then please let us know. We're working on the programme details now, so watch this space.

    Enjoy your week.
