Overview

Medical Language for Modern Health Care, Second Edition, uses Contextual Learning Theory to introduce medical terminology within a healthcare environment. Chapters are broken into lessons that introduce and define terminology through the context of A & P, pathology, and clinical and diagnostic procedures/tests. Each 2-page spread covers one topic at a time, offering contextual content, a Word Analysis and Definition Table, and exercises all in one place. Word Analysis and Definition Tables provide a color-coded guide to word parts and combining forms, as well as definitions and pronunciations. With unfolding patient case studies and documentation, students are introduced to various roles in the healthcare environment, illustrating the real-life application of medical terminology in modern health care while facilitating active learning.

Now available with LearnSmart: Medical Terminology and Connect Plus+, students and instructors can access all their course materials in one place. Connect Plus+ provides market-leading content, a proven course architecture, and unmatched flexibility to help students apply the principles in the textbook. LearnSmart is the only individualized, diagnostic study tool that creates a specific learning plan for each student, adapting as they progress through content.
