Informa Training Partners Launches Industry-Targeted Medical Terminology eHandbook

Walpole, MA (PRWEB) April 01, 2012

Informa Training Partners ( has added Medical Terminology: Decoding the Language of Medicine to its growing line of eHandbooks. This new program will help learners decipher and use medical terminology effectively with their customers and colleagues.

Initial chapters cover major components of medical terminology, such as word roots, prefixes, and suffixes, and demonstrate how these components combine to form common medical terms. Subsequent chapters focus on key medical terms specific to each major body system and include anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, diseases, diagnostic tests, and procedures. Full-color graphics, common abbreviations, and insider lingo serve to enhance learner understanding beyond what can be found in any medical dictionary. Review questions help to reinforce learning, and a final assessment offers learning management system (LMS)-compatible tracking. The product suite is the only training offering on the market built specifically to meet corporate training needs.

As with all of Informas eHandbooks, features include bookmarked and hyperlinked topic menus, interactive tables of contents, and full annotation toolbars for editable note-taking, highlighting, and underlining. A print-based version is also available.

While there are several medical terminology textbooks on the market, the vast majority target healthcare professionals, says Kristine Stollar, Senior Instructional Designer at Informa Training Partners and VP at the Society for Technical Communications, New England Chapter. We wanted to develop a medical terminology offering to meet the unique needs of our audiences: medical product sales professionals and non-sales corporate professionals within the biopharmaceutical and medical device and diagnostics industries.

When several of our clients were ready to pre-order the book before it was even completed, we accelerated the process to bring this program to market, adds Account Director, Paul Quigley. What really sets this book apart for our customers is that it is the only offering available that was developed specifically to meet the needs of medical product sales representatives, as well as corporate professionals in marketing, communications, management, R&D, and administration.

In addition to Medical Terminology: Decoding the Language of Medicine, Informas eHandbook library offers additional clinically focused topics, including:

PI Power: Selling with Support
Clinical Pharmacology: Selling with Science
Clinical Papers: Selling with Confidence
Biostatistics: Mastering the Fundamentals

Clinical Papers and Biostatistics both won awards from the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA).
