- Writing-Medical and Health
I have written articles, promotional material, and CME (continuing medical education) for health care professionals, and patient information sheets and articles for the general public. I can research and write an article from scratch or take complicated medical and scientific text and translate it into everyday language. I can even have some fun with the medical or health information. In 2007, I was commissioned to write 125 health tips. They appeared in June and July 2007 on a national news network in the U.S.
- Writing – General Topics
General topics are like a surprise bag: you never know what you’re going to get. I love the variety that’s out there and I’m up to the challenge of providing a good article within the expected time frame.
- Editing – Professional Work
I have worked for several years editing articles and CME products for both the Web and for hard copy productions.
If you need eagle eyes to go through your documents, I’ve got them. Grammar, spelling, punctuation are all fair game when I’m hired to proofread a project.
Why hire me?
When writing patient-oriented material, I feel as if it is an extension of the patient teaching that we wished we had more time for in the hospitals.
When writing professional-oriented material, I understand the needs of busy professionals and can write material that will interest them, inform them and yet, not take too much of their time.
I have worked clinically for many years, in such areas as general medicine, intensive care, rehabilitation, and palliative care. I have experience as a floor nurse, charge nurse, supervisor, and teacher.
When I began writing and editing medical and health materials, I brought all this experience with me, allowing a good blend of writing skill and nursing knowledge.
