MedComms Networking has evolved from what was largely UK-based activity but now embraces a global community of medical communications specialists, and we welcome participation by anyone working in or around MedComms and the global Pharma industry, anywhere in the world. I am particularly keen to see the development of activities led by other individuals and specifically based in other regions so if you would like to act as a local organiser for - or you would like to provide funding for - such events please contact me directly.

Patient centricity in scientific publications: what is it and will GPP 2022 help us achieve it?

Venue: Global
Date: 12.00 midday UK time, 26 October 2022

With more and more pharmaceutical companies putting patient centricity at the forefront of drug development, the role of the patient in clinical research has undergone huge transformation in recent years. But how far have we come in terms of ensuring the accessibility - to patients - of the information this research generates, and will GPP 2022 help us make more progress towards meeting the information needs of today's patients? In this webinar we will be joined by Jamil Rivers, METAvivor Research & Support, Jenny Ghith, Senior Director, Omnichannel Strategy and Innovation Lead, Global Scientific Communications at Pfizer, Caroline Shepherd, Portfolio Director and Helena Williams, Head of Medical Services at CMC Connect to answer these questions, from both the industry and the patient perspective, and invite participants to contribute their own thoughts and questions on this topic.


Navigating Copyright in Medical Communications

Venue: Global
Date: 12.00 midday UK time, 02 November 2022

The reuse of previously published content is common practice in medical communications projects but navigating complex copyright requirements governing this practice is not easy. Join CCC (Copyright Clearance Center) for a webinar focused on basic principles of copyright to learn how to avoid unintentional copyright infringement that can put your organization and your clients at risk. Attendees will leave the program able to:

* Understand the basics of copyright law and international copyright treaties
* Describe what is and what is not copyright protected (e.g., conference posters and abstracts)
* Explain fair use and fair dealing
* Identify when copyright permission is needed
* Explain what is in the public domain and how to reuse Open Access materials
* Use online tools to obtain rights and manage permissions projects

Please join Chloe Duchesne (Educational Services Coordinator, CCC) and Robert Gaggin (Senior Product Marketing Manager, Information and Content Solutions, CCC), and Brian Goode (Senior Solutions Product Manager, CCC) for this webinar focused on copyright as it pertains to the work of medical communications professionals.

And we answer questions from the audience.


Illuminating science for patients and healthcare professionals through plain language podcasts

Venue: Global
Date: 12.00 midday UK time, 09 November 2022

Expert-led podcasts summarising the latest clinical data and expert opinion, including discussions of data presented at scientific congresses, have been published by journals as peer-reviewed, citable publications. They have also been published as part of IME (independent medical education) programmes. But is it possible to create these podcasts in plain language, with both patient and healthcare professional authors? If we are trying to educate a broad audience of stakeholders (from lay audiences to highly specialised clinicians) with scientific content, can patients be podcast authors and create content with maximum impact? The answer to these key questions is yes!

Join Caroline Halford from Springer Healthcare, Niamh Clarke from Adis, and Catherine Elliott and Simon Stones from Envision Pharma Group to hear about their experience of creating plain language podcasts and the potential for using these types of initiative to make scientific information more impactful, and more accessible to a wider audience.

The presenters are keen to answer your questions and get your views on plain language podcasts, so there will be plenty of time for Q&A

It should be of interest to anyone who is working in and around MedComms, publications, medical education, or has an interest in patient engagement.

Building solutions and skills to design digital-first medical events

Venue: Global
Date: 12.00 midday UK time, 16 November 2022

This webinar will focus on how to build HCP digital events that stand out. Join Pierre Metrailler, SpotMe's CEO and one of the life science events industry leaders, to discover the key solutions and skills you need to succeed when running digital-first medical events. Pierre will deep dive into the best practices that Fortune 500 life science companies implement at their events. Come along to find out how some of SpotMe's customers, like Pfizer, J&J, Sanofi, and Novartis, keep their HCP and KOL audiences engaged. And we answer questions from the audience.


Want your web content to be seen? Why MedComms must utilise SEO

Venue: Global
Date: 12.00 midday UK time, 23 November 2022

What is the use of creating web content for your clients if the intended audience can't find it? Over 70% of HCPs use search engines daily for professional purposes, with the majority of them only clicking on the top 5 organic positions in Google. SEO gives your content the best chance of ranking in these positions and therefore being visible to your audience.

In this webinar the team from performance-io, the only pure play specialist SEO agency in healthcare and pharma, will help you to understand what SEO is, and why it's such an important tool for providing patients and HCPs with the information they truly want.

Forgotten Patients, Overlooked Diseases and Lost Health Solutions

Venue: Global
Date: 14.00-17.00 UK time, 14 December 2022

Not our webinar, but an important one that one we are pleased to support. Please join us...

Treatment and support are available for most common diseases. For those suffering from a rare condition, there will usually be a society or self-help organisation. Member of the research and medical communications community are generally familiar with helping these groups.

By comparison, there is a sizable proportion of people in the middle who may have complex, medically unexplained symptoms but no clear diagnosis. It estimated that up to 50% of GP consultations do not result in a clear diagnosis. Often, affected individuals feel overlooked as they get shunted from one specialty to another, endure countless tests and are tried on a range of unsuccessful treatments. People do not know where to turn and money and resources are wasted. There are many examples in the current media. Being labelled as having a functional or psychosomatic illness may compound their problems resulting in chronic mental health problems.

Our hope during this webinar is to highlight this 'Forgotten' group, examine with examples why the patient journey can go wrong and explore whether some previously proposed health solutions might be of value.

Organised by The Forgotten Patients Group and Stgilesmedical London & Berlin
