    MedComms Networking - 16 January 2024


    Times change. MedComms has changed.

    This coming Thursday, 18 January, at 13.00 UK time, in our first event of 2024, an EXTRA #MedComms webinar, we'll ask Are we taking notice of ChatGPT and allied AI technologies in MedComms? with Martin Delahunty (Inspiring STEM Consulting), Katja Martin (medtextpert), Stephen Mott (PharmAdvisor) and Avishek Pal (Novartis). Almost exactly one year on from when we asked the self-same panel "Should we take notice of ChatGPT and allied AI technologies in MedComms?" What have they been up to this past 12 months?

    More than 600 of you have now registered to attend. Not quite as many as one year ago, but still a very large number for a #MedComms webinar. I don't think interest is waning. Please spread the word and encourage all relevant others to join us. Why not gather your team, share some cake and use the excuse to debate your own approaches. Please join us.

    Personally, I think it's a case of "all aboard for accelerating change everywhere" now.

    The weekly #MedComms webinars start again on 31 January when we'll ask Are we facing a new era in MedComms medical writing? with Liz Stutz (Roche), Annette Keith (Langland) and Eleanor Steele (aka The MedComms Mentor). MedComms is not what it was 10 years ago. Clients, audiences, deliverables, working practices have all been changing. Technology has changed everything and generative AI is now promising to dramatically accelerate the pace of change. In this webinar, we'll reflect on how these various developments are affecting the daily working life of medical writers who work in and around MedComms, how they change the skills that writers might need to succeed and how careers in the future might play out differently. Please join us.

    What does change mean for you, or do you think it's all just "the same old same old"?

    A quick word to the wise. If you weren't there last week for the live webinar from Paul Simms and Impatient Health, watch his recording of Musk Pharma and read the accompanying White Paper. It's fascinating. Whether you agree or disagree with Paul, and whatever your views on Elon, this is thought-provoking stuff and deserves a wide audience across our community.

    Stay well, everyone. There's lots more coming!

    P.S. #MedComms freelancers - please complete our #MedComms Freelancing Barometer 2024 survey and help spread the word. We are now well on our way to 400 responses. We want lots more! It will provide plenty of food for thought for freelancers, and for aspiring freelancers and for everyone who commissions freelancers, everywhere. It closes 31 January. The results will be freely and openly shared for everyone on 1 February.
