    Communicating in the Health Sciences is written for all undergraduate students expecting to make their careers within the health sciences profession.

Communicating in the Health Sciences explains the 'whys' and 'hows' of: writing essays, reviews, media releases and summaries; conducting and presenting research and laboratory reports, of preparing and delivering submissions; collating annotated bibliographies; presenting figures and tables; preparing for examinations and presenting and delivering posters, presentations and vivas. The book is a comprehensive source of information on presentation and study skills for all students who have an academic and vocational interest in the health sciences.
