GRAMMAR & WRITING SKILLS FOR THE HEALTH PROFESSIONAL, 3e, focuses on the fundamentals of grammar and writing to help you develop the skills to communicate clearly and effectively in real-world practice. The text is divided into three modules. The first focuses on basic grammar (nouns, pronouns, verbs). The second on more advanced topics (sentences and paragraphs). The third module helps you develop writing skills for medical reports, correspondence, emails, office meeting minutes, progress notes, charting, research, and brochures. The text can also be used to develop cover letters and resumes.
This resource provides the practical information necessary to turn first drafts into concise, unambiguous text, without loss of individuality. Written by a consultant anaesthetist and an experienced medical editor, and also illustrated by an accomplished medical editor, all of whom are sympathetic to the problems and needs of medical writers, this book deals with the basic craft of writing, from choosing the best word or phrase to essential grammar.
The imperative to "publish and not perish" has never been more compelling. Yet millions of manuscripts are prepared each year without a clear path to publication by a peer-reviewed medical journal. Enter "The Gutkin Manual." Drawing from the author's distinguished, nearly 30-year career, this comprehensive and supportive guide helps to get your paper accepted--and by the journal of first choice. Elucidating pivotal principles of quality, and biostatistics, and informed by the belief that your writing can be engaging, elegant, and memorable--no matter how technical and complex the subject matter, this volume can be your trustworthy companion as you seek to enhance both the structure and substance of your manuscripts.
This resource gives beginning scientists and experienced researchers alike practical advice on writing about their work and publishing what they write. The core of the book consists of a how-to guide to writing and publishing research articles for scientific journals, explaining every step of the process, from choosing a suitable journal for your work to presenting the results and citing references.
