    MedComms Networking - 20 June 2023


    Last Wednesday was our 12th annual celebration of a Day in the Life of MedComms - and it was a lively one! Did you join in? If so, many thanks. Once again we had hundreds of organisations and individuals contributing insights, stories and comments on social media (in particular, on LinkedIn) from across the global community. As always, there were special #MedComms events throughout the day. Watch the recordings at and scroll back through the many #MedComms postings on your favourite social media platform to see what happened.

    Importantly, I'd like to acknowledge the professional organisations that joined in and at least gave us a shout out, if not more. It wasn't about any one of us - it was simply about the medical communications community raising its profile. With just a little push or two, the hashtag #MedComms took on a life of its own, at least for the day, and everyone won. So, kudos one and all, American Writers Association (AMWA), Australasian Writers Association (AMWA), European Medical Writers Association (EMWA), Healthcare Communications Association (HCA) International Society for Medical Publication Professionals (ISMPP) and PM Society.

    If you didn't join in, why not? Maybe you just needed more time to get organised. So, I'm calling it now, for next year. See you on 12 June 2024 for our 13th annual celebration of a Day in the Life of MedComms!

    I'd like to give a particular shout out to Annette Keith (Head of Editorial at Langland), Gary Lyons (Head of Commercial at Fishawack Health) and Jane Smith (Director at AMICULUM) for joining me to talk about MedComms: Future directions. It was another useful, open discussion that's worth everyone watching. Everyone can view the recording here.

    So, back to relative 'normality' for a while.

    Tomorrow's #MedComms Webinar should be interesting for everyone. Mark Denton and Seb Hall from Zenopa will review the key findings from their Healthcare Communication's Talent Insight Survey (UK) 2023, which was conducted 15 May - 09 June 2023. This survey was designed to provide valuable insights to both employers and employees in the sector. And we will answer questions from the audience. Please join us.

    Next week, panellists from the University of Dundee and AMICULUM will share more information about the new Master's course in Science and Health Communication which is launching in September 2023.

    The week after that, we will end the current series with a MedComms Online Forum, run as an extended webinar. All about freelancing in MedComms will comprise several sessions and you are welcome to come and go as you like. Please help spread the word and encourage all relevant others to join us.

    Meanwhile, here are three quick surveys I've been asked to share, to give you something to do during your next coffee break. Your participation would be appreciated.

  • Understanding the Barriers to Enhanced Publications Content. from IPG Health Medical Communications

  • ChatGPT KAP Survey from Shital Sarah

  • What does the future hold for HCP engagement? from EPG Health

  • Stay well, everyone.
