Royal Rehab’s Marketing Specialist Vanessa Gasiewski was searching for a charity copywriter with extensive health experience to copy edit the Health Maintenance Tool, a 170-page handbook for people recovering from brain and spinal cord injuries. Incorporating five modules, the handbook had to meet government standards and be checked for:
It was also crucial to ensure the content was user friendly and didn’t include technical jargon or complex language. Long sentences needed to be condensed and difficult words replaced.
Through a highly collaborative process, I edited the Health Maintenance Tool’s 170 pages ensuring a consistent tone of voice which was suitable for its target audience. As a result, the content is uniform, easy to read and can be picked up by anyone who struggles with brain or spinal cord injury.
