Workshop Objective

Non clinicians need not feel daunted by the complexity of language used in primary care - this one day course covers everything you need to know by taking you on a tour of all the main body systems. The starting point is in understanding the building blocks to medical terminology and how the words are created. Then get to grips with the anatomy and physiology to make it all fall into place.

This workshop is designed to give delegates an insight and understanding into the terminology that may be encountered in a practice environment. The course covers the basic anatomy and physiology of the systems. Delegates will be able to build up medical words using word roots, suffixes and prefixes relating to these systems, giving the flexibility to extend their knowledge.

Who should attend

  • Managers
  • Administrators & Receptionists
