    WEBCASTS

    The following webcasts are all relevant to the specialist areas of Medical Education, Medical Communications and Medical Publishing and are just the latest in a growing collection of freely accessible, streamed programmes available at www.NetworkPharma.tv.

    Want your web content to be seen? Why MedComms must utilise SEO

    What is the use of creating web content for your clients if the intended audience can't find it? Over 70% of HCPs use search engines daily for professional purposes, with the majority of them only clicking on the top 5 organic positions in Google. SEO gives your content the best chance of ranking in these positions and therefore being visible to your audience. In this webinar the team from performance-io, the only pure play specialist SEO agency in healthcare and pharma, will help you to understand what SEO is, and why it's such an important tool for providing patients and HCPs with the information they truly want. On the panel, we'll be joined by Tom Harrison (Medical Copy Lead), Isla MacAskill (SEO Content Coordinator) and Siobhan Robertson (Head of SEO). And we answer questions from the audience.

    WEBCAST:


    Illuminating science for patients and healthcare professionals through plain language podcasts

    Expert-led podcasts summarising the latest clinical data and expert opinion, including discussions of data presented at scientific congresses, have been published by journals as peer-reviewed, citable publications. They have also been published as part of IME (independent medical education) programmes. But is it possible to create these podcasts in plain language, with both patient and healthcare professional authors? If we are trying to educate a broad audience of stakeholders (from lay audiences to highly specialised clinicians) with scientific content, can patients be podcast authors and create content with maximum impact? The answer to these key questions is yes!

    Join Caroline Halford from Springer Healthcare, Niamh Clarke from Adis, and Catherine Elliott and Simon Stones from Envision Pharma Group to hear about their experience of creating plain language podcasts and the potential for using these types of initiative to make scientific information more impactful, and more accessible to a wider audience.

    And we answer questions from the audience.

    Patient centricity in scientific publications: what is it and will GPP 2022 help us achieve it?

    With more and more pharmaceutical companies putting patient centricity at the forefront of drug development, the role of the patient in clinical research has undergone huge transformation in recent years. But how far have we come in terms of ensuring the accessibility - to patients - of the information this research generates, and will GPP 2022 help us make more progress towards meeting the information needs of today's patients? In this webinar we are joined by Jamil Rivers, METAvivor Research & Support, Jenny Ghith, Senior Director, Omnichannel Strategy and Innovation Lead, Global Scientific Communications at Pfizer, Caroline Shepherd, Portfolio Director and Helena Williams, Head of Medical Services at CMC Connect to answer these questions, from both the industry and the patient perspective.
