session

A 4-hour block of labour for a doctor in the UK, calculated for a year; a 10-session post as a consultant in paediatric haematology would be advertised as such and correspond to a 40-hour work week (37.5 hours of actual labour, taking into account lunch and other breaks). It is essentially equivalent to a 10-PA post; sessions are divided into direct clinical care (the majority) and supporting professional activities.

session

(sesh′ŏn) [L. fr. sedere, to sit]
A formal clinical encounter between a patient and a therapist. In psychology and psychiatry, each visit with a client constitutes a session. A meeting between the parties may have a single objective (e.g., to analyze feelings of loss or grief) or several goals (e.g., to quit smoking and increase exercise). Each chiropractic adjustment is a session, as is each whirlpool treatment provided to an injured athlete, or each visit with a speech therapist for a patient with swallowing difficulties.
