Overview

The latest edition of this well-received text is essential for every health care professional who works with Spanish speaking patients. Written by two of California's leading spanish educators, Medical Spanish is a language tool to be used on the spot with Spanish-speaking people in medical situations. The questions are designed to elicit a 'yes or no' answer, so the health care provider does not need to be skilled at understanding Spanish. A pronunciation guide and glossary are also included. All aspects of medical communication are covered - from medical to administrative, from psychiatric to nutritional, from greetings and social amenities to medical forms. This new edition has an expanded section on both AIDS and cancer, and now includes sections on child abuse, arthritis, tuberculosis, Lyme disease, MRI and mental status. Physicians, nurses, paramedics and clinical social workers can help prevent the tragedies and frustrations that can result when medical communication is hampered by a language barrier.
