Looking for in-house health writing training?

Need some health writing training to help your staff create more engaging, consumer-friendly health messages?

I offer in-house training for health organisations, health practices and digital agencies.

With over 10 years of experience working as a health and medical writer, I know a thing or two about creating credible health content that engages consumers.

I’m also across all of AHPRA’s Advertising Guidelines, which means I can help you write content that won’t get you into trouble.

Some of the things I can help you with include:

  • How to plan your patient resources
  • How to write patient-friendly content without the medical gobbledygook
  • Nailing plain language for better engagement
  • The ins and outs of research
  • How to reference correctly
  • SEO basics – keyword research and SEO writing tips
  • How to inspire and empower your audience
  • AHPRA Advertising Guidelines – what they are and why you need to understand them
  • AHPRA – what is acceptable evidence and how to find it
  • AHPRA – how to avoid making misleading and deceptive claims

If you want to learn the essential skills to take your health communications up a notch, I can help. Get in touch to learn more.


“Highly recommended as a presenter.”

I recently got to see Nerissa speak as part of a panel at CopyCon 2022. Nerissa was both generous and honest as she discussed the achievements and challenges of running her own successful business. Her knowledge of the health and medical industry, and in particular APHRA guidelines, shines through. It’s no wonder that she’s a leading writer in this field. I highly recommend her as a presenter and think many health and medical businesses would benefit from having her present to them.

“Tremendous knowledge imparted with generosity and kindness.”

I attended CopyCon2022 and saw Nerissa Bentley present as part of a panel presentation on health and mindset for freelance copywriters. It was obvious why Nerissa was chosen.

She has tremendous knowledge, imparted with generosity and kindness. Nerissa is a highly engaging speaker and a freelance copywriter at the very top of her field. She speaks with clarity and obvious enthusiasm for her topic. I recommend her as a presenter.
