Are you frustrated by the communication gap that can occur between you and your Spanish-speaking patients? If you answered yes, this Spanish class - designed specifically for healthcare professionals - will help you bridge that gap. You will practice the basic, practical language skills needed to effectively communicate with your Spanish-speaking patients and their families. You will learn the basics of the language, gain an understanding of the culture, and know how to ask the questions crucial to quality healthcare.
Whether you speak some Spanish and need a refresher, or speak no Spanish, you will complete the course with the skills you will need to effectively communicate with your Spanish-speaking patients.
Students will purchase (on their own) McGraw Hill's Complete Medical Spanish. The eBook version is available at Barnesandnoble.com. Students can download a free Nook app to their PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad for $9.91. You can, instead, purchase the paperback book version if you wish, available from numerous sources including Amazon.
