    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.

    WEEKLY #MEDCOMMS WEBINAR
    HEOR Writing: The Ins and Outs of Value Communications

    Venue: Global
    Date: 12.00 midday-13.00 UK time, Wednesday 01 February 2023

    In this webinar we'll be joined by Beth Lesher and Larry Radican of OPEN Health who believe that HEOR writing is a unique skill set that combines skills and competencies in both writing and HEOR. The field of HEOR comprises many different methodologies - primary data collection studies such as surveys and registries, secondary data studies such as electronic medical records and claims database studies, and economic modeling and other special types of analyses like discrete choice experiments, predictive modeling, and indirect treatment comparisons. The world of HEOR has incredible breadth and depth and, therefore, so must our writing. We will discuss the ins and outs of effective HEOR writing, how to create compelling narratives on unmet need and product value that resonate with readers, as well as the key questions we should always ask ourselves when beginning a new HEOR writing project. And we answer questions from the audience.

    WEEKLY #MEDCOMMS WEBINAR
    Does format matter? How Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) are engaging with educational content

    Venue: Global
    Date: 12.00 midday-13.00 UK time, Wednesday 22 March 2023

    Medical education programmes are essential for HCPs' personal development and to embed knowledge on best clinical practice. However, engaging HCPs with educational content is becoming more and more challenging in today's hectic healthcare environment. Programmes need to capture attention, retain engagement, whilst retaining scientific rigour. How can this be achieved?

    In this webinar, Caroline Halford (Development Director, Medical Education; Springer Healthcare), Elsbeth Headley (Global Director, CME; Springer Healthcare IME) and Rebecca Cox (Principal Medical Writer; Springer Healthcare IME) investigate the role of format in engaging physicians. They will discuss their experience in delivering independent medical education content across a range of media (live vs digital, in-depth vs bitesize), consider examples where a format has been particularly successful, and highlight key takeaways from a recent HCP survey on their learner preferences.

    And we answer questions from the audience.
