Medical Society Conferences: What we learnt in 2020, what might happen in 2021

Len Starnes, Digital Healthcare Consultant, is an expert commentator on how medical societies have – or have not – integrated digital approaches into their events. And how the pharmaceutical and medtech industries engage with those events. COVID-19 caused massive disruption and, out of necessity, a significant acceleration of progress towards more digital formats for events of all types. In this webinar, we reflect on what we’ve learnt so far and what are the Medical Societies planning for the coming year? And what it might mean for MedComms specialists. And we answer questions from the audience.

Equity, diversity and inclusion in MedComms. What’s to discuss?

Equity refers to the fair and respectful treatment of all people. Valuing diversity means that we recognize and respect everyone’s unique qualities and attributes. Inclusion means that all individuals feel respected, accepted and valued. Do we do enough in our workplaces to live by these core values? If not, why not? In this webinar we’re joined by Faisal Ahmed (VLMY&Rx), Sharon Frost (Oxford PharmaGenesis), Liz Ingle (WPP Health Practice) and Dimuthu Jayawardana (Langland) to reflect on these questions and to stimulate further discussion across the MedComms community. And we answer questions from the audience.

MedComms Forum: Face-to-face events – what might a new normal look like?

This panel discussion was one of five sessions which comprised the MedComms Forum, “Disrupted events: what’s happening in #MedComms practice?“. The panellists are Stephane Dazet (European Association for the Study of the Liver), Mark Handforth (3Sixty Event Consulting), Alex Morris (Chartered Psychologist, a Chartered Scientist and Associate Fellow with the British Psychological Society) and Andrew Winterburn (3Sixty Event Consulting). There’s been a rush to transform face-to-face event into virtual events. Does that mean the face-to-face meeting is essentially dead? That’s calling for a paradigm shift in the way humans behave and like to interact. Is the future more about blended formats? If so, what are the additional practical complexities? How do venues accommodate physical distancing needs? How might those business models look? And we answer questions from the audience.
