about

The updated, fifth edition of the widely used introductory Spanish textbook designed specifically for health care professionals

Nurses, doctors, dentists, and other health care professionals increasingly need to communicate with patients in Spanish. Formerly titled An Introduction to Spanish for Health Care Workers, the fifth edition of this popular textbook is designed for students with little or no formal background in Spanish. It uses text, audio, video, classroom activities, and electronic exercises to teach basic grammar, specialized medical vocabulary, and colloquial terms as well as customs and communication styles. An interactive companion website features video clips that demonstrate practitioner-patient interactions and offers self-correcting exercises, an audio program, and flash cards.
 
The fifth edition is also updated with
 
• New topics, including muscles, pediatrics, heart disease, neurologic exams, and zika
• Nearly 300 classroom activities, including exposition activities to develop the presentational mode of communication
• Expanded vocabulary lists, sorted by frequency
Robert O. Chase teaches Spanish at Connecticut community and four-year colleges. He and Clarisa B. Medina de Chase have a combined fifty years of experience using Spanish in their work at medical and psychiatric hospitals and exploring the many cultures of Latin America. They live in Berlin, CT.
