Show synopsis This book was written in response to the growing number of ESL (English as a Second Language) students enrolling in nursing and health professions programs, as well as the tremendous increase in foreign educated practitioners coming to North America to fill the health care deficit. The minimum competency need for Medical English cannot be solely met through the use of a medical terminology book. This book addresses the use of the term in a language and grammar context with a workbook format and multiple learning methods. The book uses a progressive approach that starts with basic exercises and covers standard situations in normal healthcare settings, and uses an easy-to-read writing style.
