|Author's Note: Check the spelling of terms if
the client is unsure or you are unfamiliar with them.
It is important to ask clients to decide which term(s)
is applicable. If clients are uncertain, it's always a
good idea to suggest that they contact their health care
provider for the correct spelling. You can point out to
them that without the correct spelling, incorrect and/or
harmful information might be dispensed.
