Definition - in Medicine

In Medicine

In medical dictionaries, definitions should to the greatest extent possible be:

  • simple and easy to understand, preferably even by the general public;
  • useful clinically or in related areas where the definition will be used;
  • specific, that is, by reading the definition only, it should ideally not be possible to refer to any other entity than the definiendum;
  • measurable;
  • reflecting current scientific knowledge.
