Question Description

I’m working on a Health & Medical exercise and need support.


Initial Discussion responses should be around 150 words

Elements of Medical Terms

Learning medical terminology is more than memorization. The process of learning complex medical terms consists of focusing on the word elements such as prefixes, suffixes, and word roots. Understanding these elements will assist you in learning hundreds of medical terms.

After reading Chapter 1, you are to post a response for this discussion that entails differentiating the word elements and identifying the term’s origin. There are two parts to this discussion.

Part 1: Choose 2 of the terms in column A and differentiate the prefix, suffix, combining form, and word root.

Part 2: In addition, use one medical term of your choice to create an educational piece as if you were talking to a patient to describe what the word means in layman’s terms.

Column A











As an example for Part 1, use the following format to identify the word elements for the terms chosen:

Example: Anteroposterior

Anter – word root

Poster – word root

Anter/o – combining form

Poster/o – combining form

ior - suffix


For your reply posts, you must reply to each topic that you were not assigned for your original post.

Principles of Vaccination and Disease Prevention

Topic 2: Explain why are flu shots given each year? Who should get it and why? Who should not get it and why?
