Description

Health professionals and students preparing to enter the health care arena will appreciate the valuable lessons found in The Elements and Style of Writing for the Allied Health Professional.

*Emphasis on grammar provides medical workers and students with a solid foundation to write and proofread medical documents effectively
*Includes brief explanations of medical documents and reports such as SOAP notes, the History and Physical, Operative, Consultation, Radiology, Pathology Reports and Discharge Summary
