Subject terms used by book catalogs

Library catalogs organize materials by assigning them a specific Subject Heading.  Sometimes the words they choose to use are not ones we would use.  It's helpful to look at the Subject Headings assigned to a book.  They are usually hyperlinked in the book catalog.  If you click on the link, you will find similar books.  If you don't know the Subject term, you may prefer to do a keyword search, which uses natural language.

Make sure you use the correct medical subject heading and not the popular one (Ex. use "myocardial infarction" rather than "heart attack..") Here are just a few Subject Headings that are used for the topics researched in this class:

Health education.

Communication in medicine.

Health promotion.

Medical writing.

Communication in public health.

Public relations.
