Publisher Comments:

Give your Spanish-speaking patients the care they deserve

As a dedicated family practitioner you understand that effective communication is key to providing your patients with the high quality of care they deserve. And for many family physicians practicing in North America that entails communicating with Spanish-speaking patients and their families.

A valuable resource for family physicians, primary healthcare providers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, 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-Hills Spanish for Family Practitioners 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 in a family practice. 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 Physicians Recognition Award. Test accreditation is sponsored by the University of Arizona College of Medicine at the Arizona Health Sciences Center.

Synopsis:

Designed for use either as a stand-alone guide or as a built-in part of the series' audio packages, McGraw-Hill: Complete Medical Spanish offers health care professionals an enjoyable way to quickly acquire the skills and confidence they need to communicate with their Spanish-speaking patients. Each chapter focuses on a specific set of key terms and phrases and includes dozens of illustrations to help enhance understanding. Unlike other guides that make no distinction between levels of difficulty, this book introduces essential grammar concepts in a progressive manner.
