Project Description

This web workshop is for those who would benefit from understanding the component parts of medical terminology.

An understanding of medical terminology is essential for anyone working in the medical industry. Delegates will be able to apply the learning to every-day situations back in the practice.

This session gives administration, clerical and clinical support staff an introduction to the understanding of general medical terminology.

It provides an excellent professional development opportunity for staff working in a clinical environment such as HCAs, physiotherapy assistants, assistant practice managers, practice pharmacy assistants, clinical coding etc.  Participants will improve their confidence, their communication skills and service delivery.

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

At the PMA we pride ourselves on the understanding that one size doesn’t fit all and – therefore, we have various formats of our workshops and can adapt any programme / agenda to suit your local needs and necessaries – so, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
