Abbreviations in Swedish Clinical Text--use by three professions

, : Abbreviations in Swedish Clinical Text--use by three professions. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 205: 720-724

A list of 266 abbreviations from dieticians' notes in patient records was used to extract the same abbreviations from patient records written by three professions: dieticians, nurses and physicians. A context analysis of 40 of the abbreviations showed that ambiguous meanings were common. Abbreviations used by dieticians were found to be used by other professions, but not always with the same meaning. This ambiguity of abbreviations might cause misunderstandings and put patient safety at risk.
