    MedComms Networking - 28 February 2023


    It's no secret I believe we should celebrate what we do, and shout about it, more loudly. Today, 28 February, is Rare Disease Day 2023 and that's surely a perfect excuse to make some #MedComms noise and draw attention to the great work done by this community.

    I posted the following on LinkedIn today. Anyone care to add a comment?

    On #RareDiseaseDay 2023, let's celebrate the many #MedComms specialists who work with #RareDiseases every day, to:

  • Help bridge the gap in knowledge and understanding of complex medical information for patients and their families.
  • Raise awareness of rare diseases and the challenges that patients face, advocating for greater research and development efforts to address unmet medical needs.
  • Facilitate collaboration between diverse stakeholders, including patients, healthcare providers, advocacy organizations, and pharmaceutical companies.
  • Help advance our understanding of rare diseases and develop new therapies to improve the lives of patients.
  • Provide the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals facing significant health challenges who need our support.

  • (Thanks ChatGPT, for your help there!)

    Share your own #RareDiseaseDay message and include hashtag #MedComms so we can amplify it for you. It only takes a moment.

    Next week, 06-11 March, a number of companies from across our community are using National Careers Week here in the UK as an excuse to make some noise online about careers in and around #MedComms.

    Please join in and encourage your colleagues to do likewise, on your favourite social media platforms. Share your own #MedComms stories and highlight the variety of career opportunities in and around #MedComms. Shout about how great it is to work for your own company!

    Use hashtags #NCW2023 and #MedComms together and see if we start trending.

    I'll release another series of recorded #MedComms Stories throughout the week, as videos and podcasts, and I'm running several webinars, as described below. Everyone's welcome. Please help spread the word:

  • Monday 06 March - Where do Bioscript Pioneers come from? What can we learn about entry criteria for a MedComms career?
  • Wednesday 08 March - The four-day working week (4DWW) in MedComms.
  • Thursday 09 March - Meet the Medical Writers and the Account Managers. NOTE two webinar sessions, join us for one or other or both.

  • And let me know if you are planning your own #MedComms activities, so I can be ready to support from here.

    You might also be interested in this week's #MedComms webinar which helps set the scene, Building a diverse MedComms workforce: Developing Disability Confident recruitment strategies.

    #MedComms is booming! Let's share the news and attract more future talent.

    P.S. New PMCPA Social Media Guidance was launched in January. We ran our own webinar with Jayne Packham, but the PMCPA also ran their webinars in February to help pharmaceutical companies and other stakeholders understand this new guidance. The recordings and a copy of the slides have just been released here.

    There's lots more coming. Stay well, everyone. Keep the discussions going, using #MedComms.
