Consumer Health Vocabulary Initiative [external link]

This site, part of NLM's Unified Medical Language System (UMLS), connects informal, common words and phrases about health to technical terms used by health care professionals. It includes jargon, slang, ambiguous, and misspelled words as used by consumers and health care professionals. Due to its nature, OAC CHV includes concepts that are not represented by other source vocabularies within the Metathesaurus.
