Writing Skills in Practice presents a comprehensive overview of the development of writing skills for both students and practitioners in health care, offering useful information on all the main areas of writing practice in one volume.
The first part introduces newly qualified professionals to the skills of clinical record keeping, writing and supplying clear written information for clients. The section on teaching and learning provides hints for students on note taking, structuring essays and writing up research projects. Health professionals and experienced social care practitioners undertaking an educational role will also find advice on preparing materials for teaching, setting questions and assessing students' work. Practitioners who wish to further their professional development by publishing their work will find a range of topics covered in the final section, from the initial stages of developing an idea, to presenting articles and manuscripts for publication.
Clearly laid out with summary points, practical activities and checklists, Writing Skills in Practice makes relevant information easily accessible for the busy health professional.
