Spanish for Health Care Professionals

Spanish for Health Care Professionals

This book is designed to help doctors, nurses, and medical assistants communicate in Spanish with Latino patients and their families who have little or no command of English. Fully updated text includes the addition of vocabulary for informing families about patients' medical care or death; instructing patients on how to navigate online forms; a sample disclosure and consent form in both Spanish and English; and a new section on working with medical interpreters. Every Spanish word in the book is followed by its phonetic pronunciation. The book also provides easy-to-follow tips on understanding colloquial spoken Spanish. Author William Harvey concentrates on words and phrases likely to be used in a medical setting. True-to-life dialogues dramatize situations pertaining to pregnancy, broken bones, pediatric care, heart and lung diseases, pharmacy prescriptions, and much more.
