Medical and healthcare editing
Are you looking for a medical writer with a scientific background to edit and proofread your medical and healthcare content or grant? My goal is to produce clear, high-quality content that understands and engages your target audience.
Many of my clients tell me that they hate editing. Well, I love it.
I love to take apart your messy, complex scientific terminology, jargon and language, and shape and polish it into something beautiful.
I love to distil complex medical research and scientific data into consumer- and patient-friendly language.
Are you looking for help with submitting a strategic grant that articulates your project's goals and outcomes? I’ve worked with many healthcare and medical research clients to write successful grants for a range of funding bodies: Trusts and Foundations, the NHMRC, community grants and more.
Grant writing and editing is a specialised skill. It requires a deep understanding of the science behind the research or equipment, the ability to articulate the project's outcomes and its relevance to the grant funder's goals.
