To be an exceptional professional, employees who work in the health care industry need to write documents in a clear and well‐organized manner. Being under short deadlines, they must create documents that are correct, complete, and concise. Attend this webcast to gain valuable tools from two industry experts to become an effective writer.

After completing the webinar, the participants will have additional tools to:

  • Create documents that will answer the readers’ questions before they ask them
  • Organize most documents in less than 60 seconds
  • Recognize when to use the active and when to use the passive voice
  • Format documents for improved readability on mobile devices
  • Use online tools to analyze the readability of documents
  • Write documents that will answer the readers’ questions before they ask them
  • Use a proofreading tool that will read documents aloud
  • Employ an online tool that will help format documents by eliminating extra spaces when combining material from two or more documents

Thoughts and Reactions of Members of Medical Device Firm Who Participated in the Session: 

“Great examples of what writing well looks like. The text-to-speech function will help me proofread my documents and avoid embarrassing errors.”

“In the past, my supervisor told me to use the active rather than the passive voice in my writing. I finally understand the difference.”

“I now know how to write an email that the reader can quickly comprehend.”

“I will be a better writer tomorrow when I use the tools taught in the class including getting my computer to read my documents aloud, analyzing the readability of my documents, and using the text fixer to eliminate formatting problems when I cut and paste material from one document to another.”
