Nelson - Now available in a second edition, Writing for Canadian Health Professionals was the first of its kind in terms of student accessibility, Canadian content, and coverage of writing instruction specific to the health care area. Using a wide variety of documents and supporting pedagogy, the text guides students through the whys and hows of professional writing for the health care industry. The authors have drawn on their experiences in teaching writing to health science students and have rooted the text in the belief that students in these programs learn communication skills best when their textbook incorporates health-related themes, examples and content.
