Terminology (Rescue-, Emergency- and Disaster Medicine, Switzerland)
A goal of the Swiss Society for Emergency Medicine (SGNOR) is to create a publicly accessible database of terminology in four languages for emergency and rescue services in Switzerland. The Swiss Center for Rescue-, Emergency- and Disaster Medicine (SCRED) has been commissioned to realize this project.
The terminology tool contains translations of official terms from the entire field of emergency medicine, which have been validated by native-speaking experts of the German, French and Italian language regions of Switzerland. In addition to these three languages, analogous English-language terms are offered as well. Each term is accompanied by a short description or definition as well as a corresponding abbreviation, if available.
