Acronyms can be confusing at the best of times - see Why is HIV singled out from other STIs? yet, the field of medical science is full of them — *EHRs, PMHs, ADRs...just give a few.
The tour page states that this site is
for professionals in medical and allied health fields, students of those professions, related academics, and others with a sound understanding of medicine and healthcare-related sciences.
yet, those who are students may still be learning the acronyms and therefore would it not be beneficial to have the acronyms defined?
I cannot remember the question, but a while ago, I commented on an answer which was loaded with acronyms with no definitions, and I am wondering what the general opinion is on use of acronyms in this way?
* For the benefit of those who don't know, the following are the definitions of acronyms used in my question
- EHR = Electronic Health Record
- PMH = Past Medical History
- ADR = Adverse Drug Reaction
