Medical Communications and Writing for Patients


I’m writing this to you from lockdown. Some of us will be out of lockdown by the time you read this, and perhaps others of us will be back in! Either way, I pray that you and your families are all safe and healthy. In this issue of Medical Writing, I’m delighted to present a piece from Dr Joana Fernandes, who discusses her early career as a science/medical news writer, writing articles for a non-scientific audience. Joana explains the importance of writing for this audience; the importance of making sure that the articles are scientifically sound, accurate, and easy to follow, as a way to bring science and medicine closer to the public.
