Medical Technical Writing

Unfortunately, much of my recent work is currently under NDA. I can provide specific details on request.

A therapy is useless if the patient can’t use it — and despite this, many medical manuals are complex and hard to understand. User populations have a wide range of proficiency and knowledge with computers, so documentation must be clear and concise with little room for misinterpretation — what counts as a small change for one patient may be catastrophic for another.

In 2017, I was brought into an existing rewrite of two medical device manuals, one for the clinician’s usage that described implantation and initial setup, and one for the user that described how the system worked and how to use it safely and effectively.
