 Medical Dictionaries – Online

Good two-way communication with your doctors and treatment providers is important to aid your recovery and ensure that all information relevant to your injuries is recorded in their clinical records for your a personal injury claim. If you don’t understand something your doctor or treatment provider has said, don’t be afraid to say so and ask them to explain it to you again. They are there to help you. If you have questions, it is a good idea to make a list before you go to a medical appointment so that you don’t forget. The following resources may help you understand some of the terms your doctor uses, but they are not a substitute for asking your doctor exactly what he or she means.

NOTE: If English is not your first language, it is a good idea to bring someone who can translate what your doctor or treatment provider is saying to you.

 Healthcare Practitioners Organizations

Here are some links to different professional organizations that can help you to locate treatment providers in your area. However, it is important to remember to cooperate fully with the treatment plan provided to you by your primary doctor, and while non-traditional medicine (like naturopathy, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine) are slowly gaining acceptance, the fact is that ICBC still relies heavily on the clinical notes, records and opinions of doctors and healthcare providers who practice traditional Western medicine.
