This dictionary provides the user with the basic vocabulary currently being
used in a wide range of healthcare situations. The areas covered include the
technical language used in diagnosis, patient care, surgery, pathology,
general practice, pharmacy, dentistry and other specialisations, as well as
anatomical and physiological terms. Informal, everyday and sometimes
euphemistic terms commonly used by people in discussing their condition
with healthcare professionals are also included, as are common words used
in reading or writing reports, articles or guidelines.
The dictionary is designed for anyone who needs to check the meaning or
pronunciation of medical terms, but especially for those working in
health-related areas who may not be healthcare professionals or for whom
English is an additional language. Each headword is explained in clear,
straightforward English. Pronunciations, uncommon plurals and uncommon
verb forms are provided. Illustrations of some basic anatomical terms are
also included.
