Medical Abbreviations Quiz

Medical abbreviations abound in healthcare. I do not know why or how many there are, but the number used daily in a healthcare setting is staggering.

It is essential to know, use, and interpret medical abbreviations correctly. Take the quiz now and see how you do. 

Note: There is no official ‘use list’ of approved medical terminology abbreviations; however, the Institute for Safe Medical Practice (ISMP) has a list of error-prone abbreviations which may be of help to you.
