Do you want to come face to face with an English speaking patient with confidence knowing that you can communicate important medical issues? Well then, this textbook is for you! Each chapter is presented with easy to understand content, plenty of explanations, and examples.
Learning a language includes reading, writing, listening, and speaking and all of these skills are included in the textbook. The nurse needs to understand what the patient is trying to communicate about their medical problem but also be able to give clear instructions to the patient about their treatment. In order for you to accomplish this, each chapter has reading and writing exercises, and also has multiple opportunities to practice speaking by participating in dialogues that have useful expressions that are often used by patients.
Having an English conversation with an English speaking patient can be a frightening and frustrating experience for both the nurse and the patient, but using this textbook will ensure that both the nurse and the patient will have a satisfying experience. Enjoy learning and communicating in English.
