The ability to comprehend and apply a vast array of acronyms in everyday workplace relations has become normalised across industries. The health sector is no exception with acronyms used as short cuts to refer to both simple and complex health-related terms. To assist member agencies and staff negotiate the jargon in the health system, the VHA has collated a list of Health Industry Acronyms. The list includes over 300 terms and their associated acronyms as well as a number of website addresses for your further information. It is hoped this list will serve as a helpful reference tool and is now available via the website. If you can suggest any additions, amendments or deletions to the list, please email the VHA.
