    MedComms Networking - 28 September 2021


    Crikey, I'm already booking #MedComms webinars in 2022! Great to see interest building. Will I maintain my stamina? The Wednesdays are now reserved this year, though you'll see at that I'm having a little trouble pinning down some final details and setting up the registration pages. All should become clear soon now. Meanwhile, make a diary note for all those Wednesdays! That final event of the current series on 15 December will be another MedComms Forum and run as an extended webinar as is now the pattern. I think we have a good one being planned! More news soon.

    Use us as an excuse to take a break for an hour and think about something different. Or you can always catch up with the recordings at The topics vary widely. Some are very niche, I guess, but most should be of general interest to anyone working in and around MedComms, and many can provide a valuable basis for your own team "Lunch and Learns". Stream a recording when it best suits you and discuss - over cake, of course. Then follow up with the panellists directly if they can help further. In part this is all simply about enabling those connections.

    Last week's webinar discussion was interesting. The team from Vitaccess talked about creating collaborative digital patient registries and taking them through to the publications. Discussion was based on the MyRealWorld MG study, which measures the impact of myasthenia gravis on patients' daily lives. The opportunities that arise from collecting real world data like this are fascinating. Whether you collect hard-to-find rare disease data or collect large amounts of data quickly from common disorders. Matching data from patents and careers and HCPs and so on in real time. Anyway, watch the free recording at and see what you think.

    Importantly, the idea is we turn into a truly useful destination site for the global #MedComms community. I've plenty of ideas to try myself, but I can't do it all alone. We're heading for 400 videos now at and I'm keen to hear from anyone who has relevant and freely available video content that we can add to the collection. Let me help share your relevant video content with a wider audience.

    Recent additions include...

  • Amplifying the Patient Voice in Healthcare from the inaugural Patient Engagement Day on 1 September when Prime Global hosted an opening webinar to deep dive into what it really takes to amplify the patient voice in healthcare.
  • A career in medical writing from when Langland hosted a webinar on careers in medical writing in July.

    Meanwhile, tomorrow's webinar is about new working practices. Tim Hardman (Director, Niche Science and Technology) and Steven Walker (Director, St Gilesmedical) will review the key findings from our survey that ran in July-August 2021. Please join us. Should be fun.

    And next week, we'll talk about working in regulatory medical writing. Please tell any wannabe writers you know!

    There's lots more coming. Go #MedComms!
