Jargon – necessary or nonsense?

New titles for familiar issues is a problem for me. I have to learn the new titles and abbreviations – and often it feels as if someone thought them up to be on the inside and make me feel an outsider. But it is important to keep up and take part in the debate. We must not be overawed by jargon. And we can let each other know when a new term becomes important. I saw "mHealth" in several places and googled it. It means health care and public health programmes supported by mobile electronic gear such as mobile phones. ~ MM
