You are required to write a 2-3 paragraph explanation and/or definition of what the term or phrase means in a healthcare context. For some of you, this will be easy (i.e. physical therapy, skilled nursing facility, etc.). For others, your term may have a broad overall meaning, but you need to craft your definition so that it is specific to the field of healthcare (specialist, administrator, etc.). Be specific in your definition so that anybody could understand it. If your term refers to a person, what do they do? What credentials do they have? Where might they work? If your term is an organization, what is their goal? How and where do they function? Etc. Some of you may have two terms because they are very closely related. Be sure to address both equally (a paragraph for each is fine), and point out the similarities and differences between them.
The criteria of your post:
Must relate the term specifically to health care.
Must be 2-3 paragraphs.
Must use a minimum of 2 sources, neither of which can be Wikipedia (sources must be cited in APA format at the end of your post).
Must be completely in your own words- do not copy and paste or use direct quotes in your definition.
