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.

Duplication[edit]

Why do both https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acronyms_in_healthcare and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_medical_abbreviations? 86.166.164.39 (talk) 16:48, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
