Virtual workshop for those who have the undertaken the Introduction to Medical Terminology who have a good understanding of the component parts of medical terminology. Use of a standard set of terms and phrase is critical for clinical and non-clinical healthcare professionals in order to enable universally consistent communications within the practice and across the Primary Care Network and the wider health services. The use of standardised medical terminology also helps improve the quality of patient care by ensuring that the same words will always mean the same things to all medical employees. 


All participants will be able to apply the learning to every-day situations back in the practice. The workshop builds on the skills of the administration, clerical and clinical support staff and will enhance their understanding of medical terminology.  It provides a continuation of the professional development for staff working in a clinical environment such as HCAs, physiotherapy assistants, assistant practice managers, practice pharmacy assistants, and those responsible for clinical coding etc.  Participants will further enhance their confidence, their communication skills and service delivery. Patients and their carers can also benefit from enhanced knowledge and insight of the relevant medical terminology.




All delegates will be provided with course handouts and will be issued with a certificate of attendance after the workshop.
