All,

I work at a big medical device company. Was just approached by a manager
whose people write up reports on laboratory results, QC testing results,
etc. These reports are descriptive of things that have happened during
research, experiments, and testing. They prefer passive voice, and the use
of the kind of language typically found in FDA-regulated research.

Can anyone think of any particular class or training that he could bring in
that would help his people (who are all scientists) to write in a way more
consistent with the above? It is more medical/scientific writing than
technical writing, but I figured someone here might be aware of something.

Thanks,

Bob
