    WHAT'S HAPPENING - [view previous events]

    MedComms Networking has evolved from what was largely UK-based activity but now embraces a global community of medical communications specialists, and we welcome participation by anyone working in or around MedComms and the global Pharma industry, anywhere in the world. I am particularly keen to see the development of activities led by other individuals and specifically based in other regions so if you would like to act as a local organiser for - or you would like to provide funding for - such events please contact me directly.

    I'm always happy to chat and all feedback is welcome, so give me a shout anytime or please post your thoughts to the MedComms Networking Linkedin group for discussion.

    Scroll down to see details of activities that are planned for the coming months.

    Meantime, you can see reports of all the previous meetings here.

    WEEKLY #MEDCOMMS WEBINAR
    From clinician to payer. Making the transition from medical writing to value communications

    Venue: Global
    Date: 12.00 UK time, 12 May 2021

    Communicating the value of therapies to budget holders means supplementing traditional clinical data and mode of action with evidence on the economic value of therapies. But what do payers really care about? (hint: it's not just costs). And what skills do good value communications writers need? And how can you get them? In this webinar we'll find out what sort of projects payer value communications encompasses, and what training agencies should provide for medical writers to support a transition to value communications projects. On the panel, we'll be joined by Nick leach (Founder) and Andria Pelava (Medical Writer) at redthread | market access. And we answer questions from the audience.

    Venue: Global
    Date: 12.00 UK time, 19 May 2021

    In this webinar we are joined by Beth Wynne-Evans, Natasha Daoud and Jessica Sale who have all qualified in clinical medicine and then transitioned into careers in MedComms, and now form the The Porterhouse Medical Advisory Group (MAG). Some people are surprised not to find more medics working directly in medical communications. We'll learn how this specialist group believes they offer first-hand clinical experience to colleagues and clients, adding value as they can provide insight into what resonates with fellow health care professionals (HCPs) and patients, to leave a lasting impact on prospective prescribers. And we answer questions from the audience.
