Write effectively

A quick course for busy health professionals

I wrote this book so that health professionals could understand and master the writing process in simple stages. 


It is designed to be used as a workbook, so that readers can choose a writing project and work it up as they go through the book. It can be used individually or in groups.


The book aims to:

  • help writers understand their real writing problems,
  • empower them to focus on the needs of readers,
  • outline a sensible process for the writing process,
  • suggest objective tests for improving a manuscript,
  • encourage positive writing cultures.  

'This book nicely presents one very experienced writer's well tested approach to the task of writing' - Science Writing. 


'Personally I have found that taking the approach outlined in this book transforms writing papers from a laborious drag to something I really want to do well.'


'Although the title implies that it is specifically targeted towards health professionals, the book is helpful for everyone seeking to improve their writing skills.'
