What You Learn in the Slide Set:InQuill: Organizing Your Writing for Comprehension: Medical Communication with a Purpose
Are you a scientist writing about complex topics for journals?
A lab staff member writing an internal report about your recent work?
Or a public health official writing fact sheets for general consumption?

In all cases, you know your topic. The questions are:
1) What do you want your audience to learn, and
2) What do you want your audience to do?

In this slideset from the LIVE presentation at CDC’s 2015 Writing Summit, you learn how to clarify your educational objectives, engage your audience in your presentation and writing, present even complex material in an orderly fashion, and encourage recommended actions. You learn to get perspective from the detail of your work to consider who your audience is, what information they need, and the role you play in their taking the desired next steps.
