Overview

All the tools you need to communicate confidently and effectively with your Spanish-speaking patients

As a dedicated healthcare provider you know that effective communication is key to providing patients with the high quality of care they deserve. And for medical professionals working in North America that often entails communicating with Spanish-speaking patients and their families.

A valuable resource for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, hospital technicians, emergency care providers, and medical administrators with little or no Spanish-language experience, this book provides you with all the Spanish you need to do your job.

More than a mere phrase book, McGraw-Hill’s Complete Medical Spanish features a complete, time-tested program guaranteed to help you:

  • Understand and use a Spanish vocabulary of more than 3,000 general and medical terms
  • Confidently interview patients, take histories, conduct physical exams, prescribe medication, and give follow-up instructions in Spanish
  • Carry on spontaneous dialogues in Spanish using verbs in the past, present, future, and command forms
  • Become more aware of major attitudinal differences between Latino and Anglo-American cultures and how they impact healthcare decisions

McGraw-Hill's Complete Medical Spanish will teach you the skills needed to formulate original Spanish sentences and confidently dialogue with Spanish-speaking patients and their families.

This indispensable "tool of the trade" is also available as a part of a three-CD audio package,

    This book was extremely comprehensive. It is the perfect companion for a conversational Spanish course. Our office staff has used the book along with lessons, and everyone feels much more competant in working with our Spanish-speaking patients.
