Medicologic specialise in the design and delivery of non clinical courses to professionals outside of the NHS. As such, new training courses are frequently developed to meet the unique needs of clients and their staff. The development of an ever expanding client base over the last few years provides demonstrable evidence of our ability to design new training courses for non-medical staff at different professional levels. These courses are structured in a way that allows the trainer to progressively build on participant’s skills, and thereby help staff to understand the precise nature of medical terms and expressions.
For those involved with personal injury, courses are designed not only for experienced lawyers, who specialise in personal injury and clinical negligence claims, but also their support staff, and newly qualified staff moving into this specialisation.
For those involved in insurance courses are focused on three groups of staff: Claims Assessors, who are required to make decisions as to the validity of a customer’s claim, and in so doing, are expected to have to deal with letters from medical specialists and various drug reports; Bill Assessors, who are required to understand the nature of various operations and types of drugs that are being invoiced; and Team Coaches, who are expected to be a point of referral for the more complicated or less frequent terms.
Delivering training to non medical staff requires a rare blend of skills. Our clients know that in selecting Medicologic for their medical terminology training they are going to be able to benefit from an detailed knowledge, subject familiarity, skill, practice, understanding and know-how in the delivery of medical training courses.
Within each module the common medical terms and abbreviations are explained, and the module is structured in such a way as to draw out such areas as:
- How the terms and abbreviations appear in relation to medical claims, evidence or reports.
- Basic anatomy and the workings of the body.
- Medical signs & symptoms associated with the body system.
- Associated investigations and treatments.
- Medical conditions commonly referred to within the client’s organisation
Based on this, each module contains at least one case study to enable delegates to relate the course content back to their work place activities. Typically such case studies could take the form of sample medical letters, reports or medical evidence, which delegates would be provided as a handout.
Visual illustration during the course contents will be provided through PowerPoint slides, with the options, where appropriate, of using posters and a medical dummy to illustrate internal organs within the human body.
