Introduction 

This training is for staff who encounter medical terminology on a regular basis but who have not come from a medical background. The course is ideal for staff who are new to a medical environment; those who are unfamiliar with medical terms, and for established staff who have not received any training in understanding terminology.

Aims

This course is designed to help delegates understand the elements of medical terminology and so increase their confidence in the workplace. 

Objectives

The objectives of the course are to enable delegates to:

  • explain the concept that medical terminology can be broken down into component parts of prefixes, root words and suffixes;
  • state the meanings of commonly used prefixes, suffixes and root words in medical terms;
  • decipher terminology associated with various diseases;
  • recognise commonly used abbreviations and medical symbols

Course Outline

  • An introduction to how medical terms are constructed.
  • Common suffixes
  • Common prefixes
  • Common root words
  • Group and individual exercises throughout to consolidate learning.

Delegates will receive a comprehensive course manual and a certificate of attendance.

We require your permission to pass your email address to the trainers so that they can send you the link to join the online session, and the training materials you will need to download before the event.  Continuation with this booking will be taken as tacit approval to pass on this information.
