Rethinking HCP Engagement During and Post-Pandemic

+

Wednesday, July 8, 2020
10 AM US EDT (4PM CEST) – 75-minute Webinar

 

OVERVIEW:

As a result of the global COVID-19 outbreak, field teams are no longer able to visit HCPs face-to-face. In order to overcome this challenge and continue to engage their HCPs, Field Medical teams are required to do so virtually via online video platforms. Although practical, this method of communication requires a different set of skills compared with face-to-face interactions, and comes with its own challenges
During this Webinar, we will explore the skills and challenges around effective remote engagement and share hints and tips to help you access, engage and follow-up with HCPs remotely

 

OBJECTIVES:
(a) targeting a predefined set of focus questions
(b) presenting alternate views on a particular issue that is of concern to the Medical Affairs community and attempting to resolve the issue
(c) identifying priorities for new areas of industry standards and guidance
(d) initiating the appropriate collaborations and building community around a theme of interest.

 

At the end of the webinar, participants will have a better understanding of how to:
1.     Access and engage Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) remotely
2.     Plan for, deliver and follow-up on an impactful remote/virtual call with an HCP

Thinking Forward: The Long-Term Impact of 2020 on the World of Medical Affairs

+

Friday, July 10, 2020
10 AM US EDT (4PM CEST)

 

OVERVIEW:

The year 2020 is one that will be looked back on as a watershed moment, not just because of the disruptive force of COVID-19, but because of the wider sea-change in opinions and actions taken by individuals and communities to bring about positive, long-lasting global transformations. It is clear that things will not, and should not, go back to the way they were and there has been much talk of ‘the new normal’, but what does this really mean?
Medical Affairs teams have shown the ability to rapidly adapt to the changes in needs of the healthcare community during the pandemic, ensuring that healthcare professionals have remained up-to-date with the latest evidence, and felt supported through this time, without being overburden by unnecessary communications. As we consider the wider changes seen across our communities, we explore how Medical Affairs needs to continue to evolve in how it thinks, acts and engages to drive further improvements in healthcare outcomes, as well as to ensure that our teams are equipped and empowered to adapt and excel in our new reality. Case examples and analogs will be provided to offer additional perspectives regarding the transitions of teams to new ways of working.

 

Objectives: May include but are not limited to:
(a) targeting a predefined set of focus questions
(b) presenting alternate views on a particular issue that is of concern to the Medical Affairs community and attempting to resolve the issue
(c) identifying priorities for new areas of industry standards and guidance
(d) initiating the appropriate collaborations and building community around a theme of interest.

Digital MSL Insights in the Time of COVID-19

+

Wednesday, July 22, 2020
10 AM US EDT (4PM CEST)

 

OVERVIEW:
The COVID-19 pandemic is significantly changing the healthcare landscape. Normally, Medical Affairs organizations rely upon MSL insights to understand changes in the healthcare landscape and identify challenges and opportunities around these trends. However, COVID-19 has shifted face-to-face interactions with collaborator HCPs to virtual meetings and limited introductory meetings with new HCPs. This has made it more challenging for MSL teams to generate and record insights.

The topic of this webinar is how Medical Affairs teams can continue to identify strategic opportunities to improve outcomes for the organization, HCPs and patients despite limited interactions with HCPs.

The pandemic is an opportunity for Medical Affairs teams to use creative ways to help their organizations understand changes in the healthcare landscape, such as how COVID-19 is changing medical practice. Attend this webinar to learn how to generate insights through digitally-based interactions without directly engaging HCPs. We will discuss and share various ways that MSLs can generate insights through digital mechanisms, from attending “live” virtually-broadcast panel sessions to following influential KOLs on Twitter.

 

OBJECTIVES:

To help MSL teams identify ways to understand the key trends, such as how medical practice is changing in response to COVID-19, in their therapeutic areas by using insights obtained from digital sources. Various ways MSLs can collect insights without interacting with HCPs directly will be presented. These suggestions will help organizations better understand how clinical practice is changing and which actions to take in the short- and long-term. Right now, this is a high priority for every MSL team. This webinar will help MSL teams continue to succeed in our new healthcare environment.
