3 Reasons to Write

The internet has given us unending opportunities to become a published author. Writing is one of my favorite topics and I encourage all Everyday EMS Tips subscribers to regularly write. Here are three Everyday EMS reasons to write regularly:

1. Stress management – relieve stress, share your feelings, and process your emotions by writing them in a journal or personal blog.

2. Improve your communication skills – writing (the PCR) is part of every patient contact. Writing will also be essential if you want to climb the professional ladder. Writing often will increase your overall communication skills.

3. Increase your knowledge. Pick a topic you want to learn more about. Research that topic and then write a short newsletter article about that topic. Send it to me and I will share what you have learned here with other subscribers.

Share your ideas in the comments section.
