How can eliminating abbreviations reduce errors? Should written policies be developed for abbreviation usage? If yes what should the policies contain. If no explain? When are abbreviations acceptable? Who should use them and why?
Abbreviations and acronyms can mean different things in different contexts.
ASAP can mean "as soon as possible," but it can also mean "always say a prayer."
What other overlaps can you think of?
