MedComms Networking West Coast USA style

I thought this was great fun. Thanks to all who joined in. It’s been a long #MedComms Day and I’m running out of steam, but as we now head towards the end of the day it was great to have the opportunity to chat with this eclectic group of specialists thanks to the wonders of Zoom! Discussion topics included plans for the ISMPP West 2021 (Irvine, California, USA, 21-22 October 2021), using crowd-sourced video in medical education, KOL engagement through asynchronous meetings/webinars, extending the reach of publications, and authenticity in healthcare communications.

An exciting outlook for Medical Communications globally

Thank you to the many who joined us for today’s #MedComms webinar. The recording is now freely available below – or you can catch up at NetworkPharma.tv or the MedComms YouTube channel, along with much, much more.. Enjoy!

The MedComms sector is thriving. If anything the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a bright spotlight on the need for accurate, timely scientific exchange and how MedComms specialists can play a pivotal role in facilitating that activity. In this webinar we are joined by representatives from McCann Health Medical Communications. 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) will reflect on the journey that MedComms has taken to where we are today and discuss current priorities and ponder future opportunities. And we answer questions from the audience.

Flat out with flat packs

Blair Hesp is building his team – and the office to go with them – at Kainic Medical Communications in New Zealand and sent in the following message after another busy day that isn’t over yet.

It’s been another busy day for the team at Kainic working on everything from overnight Veeva uploads to competitor intelligence activities for some of our clients from around the world. To keep up with demand Kainic has recently moved into newer, bigger offices to accommodate our growing team that expanded by one yesterday and we’ve been performing reference checks today for a second new hire to bring our team up to six full-time writers.

Alongside that, there has also been a lot of office admin, including figuring out why internet connection at our old office hadn’t been disconnected, approving our new office signage, signing off our end of financial year accounts, receiving (almost) all of some of our new flat pack desks and break room table (one piece got left behind at the yard apparently) and organising more computer equipment for our growing team, which requires some scrambling given supply issues into New Zealand as a result of international shipping delays.

Unfortunately, we missed the NZ writers call today because of other commitments that tied everyone up, but I’ll still be working into the night as we correspond with clients in the Northern Hemisphere as they come online for their working day before starting it all again at 7AM tomorrow morning.

PS What’s behind door number 3? Feel free to ask us if you need some freelance writing support as there might be a medical writer with some time on their hands in early July.
