This 3-day forum is the “must attend” event for those senior decision-makers looking to drive their medical affairs teams and departments and enhance their KOL & stakeholder engagement at all levels.

The first day will feature several keynote presentations from VP-Level thought leaders on shaping and leading the medical affairs departments, justifying medical affairs performance through innovative metrics and tracking effectiveness of the function as an essential element of today’s pharmaceutical companies. They will be discussing the strategic drivers for medical affairs, and guidance on how to make best use of this vital function.

Day 2 of the Forum will feature 2 specific streams depending on your specific needs:

Stream 1: Enhancing Medical Communications for Medical Affairs – Medical Affairs departments are increasingly looking to implement next generation medical communication practices, to offer essential evidence-based information to stakeholders on demand, through a variety of classical, yet also increasingly digital channels. This stream will focus on two key aspects of medical communication. Firstly, issues such as: protocol writing for internal late-phase studies and research initiatives; working with External Experts (KOLs) to enhance publications, abstracts & posters and receiving proposals for investigator-initiated studies. The second section of this day will focus on Medical Scientific Marketing communications, including the review process, compliance issues, ensuring the claims made by marketing colleagues are justified and appropriately communicated and also effectively localized from global-level to country-level market requirements.

Stream 2: Real-World Evidence Generation for Medical Affairs – Generating real world evidence via observational studies and the use of patient registries is one of the fastest growing areas of pharmaceutical R&D. Such post-marketing studies are becoming increasingly important as regulatory agencies and payers demand more long-term data which demonstrates efficacy, safety and quality. The Medical Affairs unit plays a decisive role in generating this vital evidence and this stream will present solutions to the challenges companies face in generating high-quality evidence which will communicate a compelling value argument to all necessary stakeholders requirements.

Day 3: MedAffairs: MedTech

This session focuses on the fast-evolving role of medical affairs specifically for MedTech companies and the increasingly important need for this function which facilitates overall corporate performance. The different business model of MedTech vs Pharma, necessitates an adjustment in the way KOLs, external experts & patients are engaged with and communicated to. This highly-popular, 1-day stream is back and with new speakers, will enable the MedTech community to get the most out of their medical affairs teams and develop a more patient-centric business model.

Along with our exclusive networking dinner for all participants, the event will feature excellent networking opportunities and the chance to strengthen your contacts within the Medical Affairs community. The 2017 event was a sell-out so please make sure you book early to avoid disappointment.

This one-day workshop will take participants through the digital medical communications planning & delivery process step-by-step. We will present theory and best practice around a number of aspects of digital communications planning and programme development. At each stage, participants will then work together on an example scenario to discuss and develop their own ideas with support from our experts. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
