Advanced Notes Summarising


The Advanced Notes Summarising Course is designed to elevate your summarisation skills to an expert level by integrating your foundational knowledge of Medical Terminology, Body Systems, and the transition from Read to Snomed coding. This comprehensive course aims to consolidate your skills, preparing you to tackle the complexities of clinical Electronic Patient Records with confidence and precision.

Delving deep into the critical areas of patient records, this advanced training provides detailed guidance on accurately documenting significant medical details. You’ll explore specialized coding for diverse medical fields, including Oncology and Morphology, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Mental Health, Fractures, as well as how to interpret Tests, Results, and Health Status with clarity and accuracy.

A key component of the course is mastering the Snomed browser, where you’ll learn to differentiate between synonymous and preferred terms, ensuring you select the most appropriate codes. With practical demonstrations and hands-on exercises, you’ll become adept at navigating the nuances of medical coding.

To support your journey to becoming an advanced summariser, you will receive a comprehensive toolkit, including access to essential documents, links to key resources, and copies of the course materials for ongoing reference.
