Opportunity to work on C&M resources
Dear CMHP Credentialed Member <<First Name>><<Last Name>>,
You may have recently received the Choice & Medication January newsletter. Council members wanted to highlight the call for writers included in the newsletter in case any of you would be interested in getting involved.
Here is the text from the article:
"Help Needed (final call)
"Several people have helped us with writing and reviewing in the past but due to job changes we currently have a vacancy for some people to give us a hand with writing for C&M’s resources. There are a whole range of potential tasks e.g. writing new Q&As for the website text, new fact sheets, and reviewing current leaflets.
"You must be able to write in an accessible manner. If you can tell the difference between the readability of “Many patients may experience some of the following adverse reactions:” and “Some people may get:” then you may be a person for us. The former may be scientifically precise but it’s unreadable to non-scientifically trained people.
"We pay an hourly rate and all writing is done in collaboration with Steve Bazire, to make sure it has the “house style”. Some of the current outstanding projects include:
- “What should I do if I think I’ve taken a double dose?” Q&A for the website
- Handy fact sheets on NMS, antidepressants and suicide, coming off antipsychotics, and loads more.
"If you’re interested, please contact Steve (email@example.com) and he’ll get back to you to discuss the options. People who contacted us previously will have been contacted separately and don’t need to do this part again. "

College of Mental Health Pharmacy Council
