HS410-1: Analyze taxonomies, clinical vocabularies, terminologies and nomenclature used in

healthcare settings.


Your boss, the Director of Human Resources at a prominent healthcare organization, has asked

you to prepare a brief PowerPoint presentation as part of her presentation to new employees

during orientation. Your PowerPoint is to familiarize new staff from all departments with the most

common clinical and healthcare management terminology which they will be exposed to and

expected to use on their new job.

What information will you include in your PowerPoint slides? What notations will you make in

the speaker’s notes for your boss to stress? How will you organize the material so that it will be

presented in an effective and memorable fashion for these new employees who are just being

exposed to terminology that you use on a daily basis?
