    MedComms Networking - 17 May 2016

    Hi

    Superb! In a word. Last week's FirstMedCommsJob: Meet the agencies event enabled six leading MedComms agencies to get together with 20 enthusiastic and well qualified wannabe MedComms specialists. Four registered delegates dropped out in the week before only because they'd been offered jobs in MedComms and there's no doubt some, if not many, of the rest will follow soon.

    Here's a comment from one attendee.

    Thank you for a great opportunity. This event, along with other MedComms Networking events that I have attended, exposed the type of environment that I will be working in, and the nature of the people I will be working with, when I begin my career as a medical writer: inspiring, motivational, dynamic and incredibly welcoming.

    If you ever feel fed up working in MedComms come to a Careers day and feel the enthusiasm!

    Last week's event was a trial, but it undoubtedly worked and we'll definitely plan more days. However, for now, please note our next big annual Open Careers Day is in Manchester on 14 September, for anyone with an interest in MedComms. Please tell all your own contacts. It really is a very useful day. If your agency wants to participate give me a shout soon, though, as we expect the space to sell out quickly again.

    It was very heartening last week to hear, from all sides, how useful the various resources are at FirstMedCommsJob.com. We intend to build that new service quickly and I'd welcome contributions from across this MedComms community. The current Sponsors (AMICULUM Ltd, Darwin Healthcare Communications and Highfield:Communication) are meeting with me on 22 June to discuss exactly what we do and when. If you'd like to be a part of leading this project with us then please get in touch.

    Last week saw the publication of a paper from the Envision Pharma team, High nonpublication rate from publication professionals hinders evidence-based publication practices, with an accompanying video abstract from Karen Woolley in which they argue the case for publishing more of the research work done by the publications community. I can't help but agree with the sentiment. I've started a discussion in the MedComms Linkedin group, which has already attracted some useful comments and I'd encourage you to share your thoughts.

    This sentiment was also argued at our recent Brunch event we ran with input from ISMPP as you can see in the webcasts that are now freely available. I admit I love this format and I'm looking forward to quickly building a library of great MedComms content at NetworkPharma.tv by filming all the presentations at our monthly Brunch Club events. We now have a final programme for our next one on 1 June with input from EMWA and also the one after that on 6 July with input from EASE. The point is to generate the webcasts but they'll be fun meetings to attend if you can join us on those days. Just email to sign up as usual. Everyone welcome.

    Have a good week everyone.

    Cheers
