From the Back Cover:

All the tools you need to communicate confidently and effectively with 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 healthcare providers working in North America that often entails communicating with Spanish-speaking patients and their families.

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

Convenient, flexible, and complete, McGraw-Hill's Spanish for Healthcare Providers features:

  • A Comprehensive Course Book--Using sample dialogues, numerous exercises, and more than 200 expert illustrations, the book introduces a vocabulary of 2,500 general and medical terms, builds familiarity with typical medical situations, and develops a greater awareness of Latino culture and its impact on healthcare issues. A bilingual glossary features 1,000 of the most useful medical Spanish terms for easy reference.
  • Audio CDs--Featuring a variety of native speakers, the first two CDs contain vocabulary, phrases, and dialogues that reflect a wide range of common medical situations--everything from the first interview to medication instructions and follow-up--while the third zeros in on situations typically encountered by physicians, nurses, physician assistants, technicians, and other healthcare providers. An accompanying booklet contains the full scripts and English translations of the dialogues.
  • Continuing Medical Education Tests for CME credit--The ten CME tests contained in this booklet have been approved for a maximum of thirty hours in category 1 credit toward the American Medical Association Physician's Recognition Award. Test accreditation is sponsored by the University of Arizona College of Medicine at the Arizona Health Sciences Center.
