There are many benefits of writing for publication including sharing best practice, highlighting complex clinical challenges and increasing your profile within tissue viability. This can be done in a variety of different ways, such as:
This explores key papers and produces a summary of best available advice, research and data.
RESEARCH & AUDIT
These highlight small research projects and clinical audits. This includes the ‘why’ and ‘how’, key findings and recommendations or the implications for clinical practice.
An ideal platform to share, challenge and advance clinical practice. This could share delivery models or clinical pathways, through to specific dressing or bandaging techniques.
These intimate and patient focused articles present complex challenges and share success when these are managed effectively.
Posters can be a nice entry point to the world of clinical writing. Posters can present all the above, in a structured and illustrated format. Posters are usually written using sub sections to navigate the reader and include introduction, method, results, discussion and conclusion.
LLCS offer support in writing, presenting and sharing clinical practice. If you have a story your company or customer wants to share, please contact us for more information on how we can help you.
