22nd Feb, 2017 A CME workshop on “Effective Technical Writing for Research” was conducted at Prime Institute of Public Health on February 22, 2017 by Dr. Abdul Latif.

Dr. Abdul Latif earned his Master degree from Aga Khan University, and is currently working as senior instructor and program coordinator at Prime Institute of Public Health.

Participants of the workshop were enrolled from different backgrounds that included professors of medical schools and postgraduate students.

The presenter described basic rules of technical writing before introduction of specific rules and components of a research writing. He highlighted the difference between general and academic scripts. He mentioned that we should keep our readers’ need and relevancy in mind while writing an academic or technical report. He stated that clarity with simple words choice is the crux of a good writing. While discussing brevity, he quoted Blaise Pascal, who said, “If I had more time, I would have written you a shorter letter”. He emphasized that without good revision there is no good writing.

The facilitator discussed 7Cs of communication in details. Reasons of communication failure including writing were also highlighted.

Later in the session, components of research writing was discussed in particulars. He provided the list of topics that should be included in introduction and background sections. Rationale, conceptual framework, methodology, and findings of a research paper were comprehensively explained.

Case scenario and hands on practice for effective writing were also included in the session.

Pre and post assessment of the participants was done for evaluation purpose. The participants acknowledged the efforts made throughout the session and the importance of this session in their academic and research career. At the end of the session, CME certificates of participation were distributed among the participants.
