Medical - Birth Control, Annotated Bibliography
For this first project, you will compose a 5-page annotated bibliography (double-spaced) of at least 7 relevant sources on a medical/health communication issue of your choice. The primary purposes of this project are to give you an opportunity to investigate a medical/health communication topic that is of particular interest to you and also for you to be familiar with the existing literature or research on medical communication/writing—at least as far as the topic you choose is concerned. This project will also help shape the topic for your letter to the editor project (see below). Before you begin your research on this project, think of an issue that is of interest to you (i.e. plagiarism in medical writing, ethics in medical, clarity in medical writing, risk communication, advertising in the pharmaceutical industry, clinical trials, localizing medical information, patient-doctor communication practices, writing patient educational materials, etc.). Writing on an issue that is of real interest to you will motivate you to want to find out more about that issue. After you have decided on a specific issue, you will look for articles in peer-reviewed medical journals and books that address your topic, and then you will write an annotated bibliography drawing from these articles. If you find other materials that are not journals or books, you need to run it by me for approval. The UHD database can point you to such articles in these journals. Here is a link to some open-access journals that will be of help to you in locating specific materials: http://www.freemedicaljournals.com/
