National Clinical Terminology Service webinar series July 2020

3 July, 2020: The National Clinical Terminology Service (NCTS) of the Australian Digital Health Agency, are once again holding live online Q&A style webinars in July 2020. These events are a great opportunity to consolidate your understanding about SNOMED CT-AU and the Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT) and engage with terminology experts.

For those who are familiar with our past webinar series, we are shaking things up a little! Since we have many introductory level recordings available on the Australian Digital Health Agency YouTube channel, we are changing the format of the live event to focus more on Q&A and dedicate more time helping you understand the topics that interest you. To make the most of these sessions, please watch the relevant videos beforehand and come along with your questions.


1. Introduction to SNOMED CT-AU and the Australian Medicines Terminology (AMT), and searching using the Shrimp terminology browser

This 60-minute session will provide an overview of SNOMED CT-AU terminology, which includes the AMT. We will also give you tips on how to search for content using the Shrimp browser to explore the content you are interested in. The rest of the time will be dedicated to questions from the participants.
