Medical and Public Health Dictionaries: Finding Meaning in Medicine
GovSpeak: A Guide to U.S. Government Acronyms and Abbreviations:
This guide lists acronyms and abbreviations commonly used by the United States federal government. Each acronym is defined and links to the home page (or best alternative) of the identified department, agency, office, program or publication.
While Appendix A of the U.S. Government Manual provided the foundation of GovSpeak, this expanded list includes hundreds of acronyms not included in that publication; most have been discovered by manual reviews of department websites. Links are checked and updated monthly.
Since Google web searches can be limited to site: gov and then beyond that to formulas like, site: gov/pubmed or site: gov/eric or site: gov/epa or site: gov/cdc , this list of acronyms will contain a substantial number of acronyms useful for this application.
BOOKS: Jablonski's Dictionary of Medical Acronyms and Abbreviations
with CD-ROM, 6th Edition
"Medical acronyms and abbreviations offer convenience, but can often be confusing and difficult to decode. This handy, portable new 6th edition features thousands of new terms from across all medical specialties. Its alphabetical arrangement makes reference a snap, and expanded coverage of symbols makes more of them easier to find. The included CD-ROM provides electronic access featuring the entire content of the book, making it fully searchable for added usability."
Table of Contents:
Mapping of Medical Acronyms and Initialisms to Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) across Selected Systems
"ntroduction: Given the common use of acronyms and initialisms in the health sciences, searchers may be entering these abbreviated terms rather than full phrases when searching online systems. The purpose of this study is to evaluate how various MEDLINE Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) interfaces map acronyms and initialisms to the MeSH vocabulary."
"Each acronym and initialism was entered into each MEDLINE MeSH interface to determine if it mapped to the corresponding MeSH term. Separately, 46 commonly used acronyms and initialisms were tested.
Results: While performance differed widely, the success rates were low across all interfaces for the randomly selected terms. The common acronyms and initialisms tested at higher success rates across the interfaces, but the differences between the interfaces remained.
Conclusion: Online interfaces do not always map medical acronyms and initialisms to their corresponding MeSH phrases. This may lead to inaccurate results and missed information if acronyms and initialisms are used in search strategies."
