Writing & Research in the Disciplines: Nursing & Allied Health

Brief descriptions of the thinking and writing used by individual disciplines; recommended library databases

Writing

Nursing and the allied health professions  are found within the larger disciplines of medicine and science.  While Medicine and the Sciences are not the same discipline, they do value the same general ideas in their professional writing. Readers in both Medicine and Science value:

  • Current references and sources; the more current the better.
  • Processes and measurements that can be reproduced. In both of these fields practitioners and theorists would like to try to achieve similar results, so share your methodology clearly.
  • Proof of conclusions. It is important to show how you arrived at your thinking by examining your thinking clearly in your writing.
  • Application to the field of study:  how will this information apply to the practice of nursing or respiratory therapy?   What are the challenges of implementing evidence-based medicine within the specific field?
