Käännetäänkö therapeutic substitution samalla tavalla kuin substituted medication = korvaava lääkitys?
Eija Cavanaugh
terapeuttinen substituutio
Explanation:
I suppose it depends on the context: if the therapeutic aspect is important and the text is for professionals, I'd use "terapeuttinen substituutio".

(My understanding is that "therapeutic substitution" refers to the process of substituting a pharmaceutical with a therapeutically equivalent medication, and "substituted medication" refers to the actual therapeutic agent.)

  -> Kiitos!

neutral  Anne Maria Ylisaari: Täytyy kommentoida, että en ole kyllä (alan ihmisenä) koskaan kuullut termiä "terapeuttinen substituutio". Tosin nyt ei paljoakaan ilmaisun kontekstista tullut ilmi. Korvaavista lääkkeistä kyllä alalla voidaan puhua.

  -> Kiitos kommentista, etkö ole kuullut? Ainakin apteekkariliitto näkyy sitä käyttävän, haasteenahan tässä oli muistaakseni se, että piti (vaillinaisen kontekstin avulla) kääntää termi, joka kuvaa juuri tuota korvaavuutta.
