Hi. As a side note to Richards excellent reply...
HornerForm for me pulled out a common k^3 term instead of just factoring out a k^2 term.
If I were to use this code in vb/vba or something, I like to add the following.
Since k^3 is calculated multiple times, I like to set that to a variable as well.
Series[p,{n,1/2,40}] //Normal;
% //. n-1/2->k
14 k^2-1296 k^5+1451188224 k^11-2002639749120 k^14+598075300380672 k^17-83414577743659008 k^20
+3977900382788517888 k^23-113721152119718805504 k^26+1516282028262917406720 k^29
HornerForm[%,k] //.k^3->w
k^2 (w (k^6 (w (w (w (w (w (1516282028262917406720 w-113721152119718805504)
+3977900382788517888)-83414577743659008)+598075300380672)-2002639749120)+1451188224)-1296)+14)
In vb, I might change the k^2 to k*k, and note that the odd ball k^6 is just w*w.
Hense, a function without a lot of power terms might be something like:
g[n_] := Module[{k = n - 1/2, w},
w = k*k*k;
k*k (w (w*w (w (w (w (w (w (w*1516282028262917406720 -113721152119718805504)+3977900382788517888)
-83414577743659008)+598075300380672)-2002639749120)+1451188224)-1296)+14)]
If f[x] is the op's original equation, then a quick test at a few points:
Table[ { f[n], g[n] }, {n,35/100,53/100,1/100}];
