If anyone is interested in medical shorthand dictation in Simplified Gregg, the book “Dictation for the Medical Secretary” is up for bids. Click below for more information:
The Gregg Group was founded 22 May 2004, prompted by the lack of online shorthand resources. As the primary use for shorthand — business and legal recording — has waned in recent decades, we generally acclaim the skill as a hobby or personal tool. The purpose of the group is to promote the use of Gregg systems of shorthand by providing advice to beginners, support for students, and an association of users of this efficient, attractive, and enjoyable method of writing.
Dictation for the Medical Secretary is an excellent book. Apart from the medical vocabulary and shorthand, it gives a fascinating insights into 1950s medicine: It has discharge summaries that talk about patients who leave the hospital after a month or two. Many of the medical words remain current, but many are now primarily of historical interest. Brian
