'Cambridge English for Nursing' Intermediate Plus follows 'Cambridge English for Nursing' Pre-Intermediate with practice in the more technical areas usually undertaken by Registered or Endorsed Enrolled Nurses. Near authentic hospital charts such as care pathways and patient notes are included to encourage students to become familiar with their use. Complex communication skills are also presented such as talking with a dying patient, assessing the pain level of a child and reassuring a pre-operative patient who is anxious.
Many nurses communicate in English at work,either in an English-speaking country or in their own country using English as a common language to communicate with patients who may be accidentally injured on holiday. English is also used to communicate with medical tourists.
English for Medical Purposes encompasses the language used by a range of Healthcare Professionals.Nurses need to be able to use medical terms and also everyday health terms in order to communicate safely and effectively. Registered Nurses have the added responsibility of supervising Healthcare Assistants or Certified Nursing Assistants and must also be confident in communicating within the Multidisciplinary Team both face-to-face and over the telephone.
The hospital environment can be pressured at times so confidence in using specific healthcare language is essential. 'Cambridge English for Nursing' is complemented by several books written by Virginia Allum in the 'English for Medical Purposes' series which covers areas such as Spelling and Vocabulary, Medication Calculation for Nurses,The Heart, Doctors and Health Care Assistants.
