NLG developers must work closely with do- main experts in order to build good NLG sys- tems, but relatively little has been published about this process. In this paper, we describe how NLG developers worked with clinicians (nurses) to improve an NLG system which generates information for parents of babies in a neonatal intensive care unit, using a struc- tured revision process. We believe that such a process can significantly enhance the quality of many NLG systems, in medicine and else- where.
