    MedComms Networking - 22 June 2021


    I admit I'm still recovering from #MedComms Day 2021! I'm still finding content I hadn't seen on the day and still impressed by the amount and variety of video contributions that were shared on social media.

    Did you see the short video commentaries from industry "veterans" that Avishek Pal and his associates at MIRORR (the new MedComms India Professional Networking Group) were posting? They are easily found on LinkedIn where they were being published and widely shared that week, and they are now being collected together into MIRORR's new YouTube channel. See what you think of what was said. Enjoy.

    It was clear to all on #MedComms Day that this is indeed a vibrant global community. Very busy, but generally very positive despite the crazy year we've just had (and it 'aint over yet!).

    That was backed up by the discussion during the webinar we ran on the day with representatives from McCann Health Medical Communications. Thanks to Charlie Buckwell (Global President), Faye Daley (HR Coordinator and Lead for their Mental Health First Aiders programme), Folabomi (Bomi) Oladosu (Medical Writer and Member of their D&I Council) and Michael Stevinson (Global Head of Caudex) for joining me and the large international audience that we attracted. We entitled it "An exciting outlook for Medical Communications globally" and it is. MedComms is booming.

    Watch the recording here.

    In light of that, what could we learn from the 4th annual Healthcare Communications Workforce Insight Survey, which was conducted April-May 2021?

    Last week, during our free weekly #MedComms webinar, Daniel Clifton (CEO, Paramount Recruitment) and Mike Ellingham (Marketing Consultant) shared the latest summary results, hot off the press, from 720 UK-based respondents. It was interesting to hear the positives, how busy everyone was and generally how high the levels of satisfaction were amongst members of our specialist community. But some of the numbers were interesting to say the least.

    Watch the recording here.

    I would stress that I think all online surveys should carry a health warning! Be careful regarding the specific numbers too precisely, but they do provide useful grounds for discussion. This morning I posted an article on Linkedin, Five points to ponder from the 4th annual Healthcare Communications Workforce Insight Survey to see what if any thoughts you would share. Take a look.

    Note, more detailed results from the annual survey are available if you contact Daniel Clifton at Paramount Recruitment, on email There was a lot of data in there again and plenty of food for thought, hopefully.

    Meanwhile, in tomorrow's webinar I'll be joined by Sarah Diffen (Senior Director, Client Success) and Alex Monaghan (Senior Business Partnerships) of Within3 and Michelle Marchione (Associate Director, Oncology Patient Affairs) at AstraZeneca to focus on virtual engagement strategies for medical affairs teams to maximize their engagement with physicians, patients, and other care team members. Please join us.

    And next week we'll hear more about Lucid's learning and development programme. Again, everyone's welcome to join us.

    Stay well. There's lots more coming.
