What is a glossary? It's a specialized type of annotated (stand-alone) list article, where the annotations are descriptions of the terms listed. Glossaries serve the primary functions of lists as well as present definitions to assist topic identification, link selection, and browsing. List structuring and annotation is covered in WP:LISTS, and glossary formatting is covered at Wikipedia:Manual of Style (glossaries).

Ha[edit]

Hahahaha I'm no expert, but I'm going to go ahead and guess that "TUBE" can't be found in too many medical journals.

local / self-promoting entries - can we pare this down to notables?[edit]

"The terms listed are used within the health care systems of various countries."

Hello all. Some of these entries look like self promo work. Can we trim this list a bit to remove the local businesses, dead links, and shills?


Example 1: These Washington state organizations/hospitals were added by the same user 'Inhspr' in 2009, then zero activity, appearing to be a company-specific shill:

  • INHS — Inland Northwest Health Services (local group of hospitals)
  • CHER — Community Health Education & Resources (local organization; dead article link)

Example 2:

  • WHRN — Whole Health Resource Network

Online ads/listings where some do not list a city or state, because Morehead City, NC is assumed. This is a local business listing, not notable.
