Not rated yet
0

An Introduction to Medical Terminology for Health Care is designed to introduce medical terms to readers who have little or no prior knowledge of the language of medicine.

The latest edition of this hugely popular volume retains its effective approach to learning medical terminology by breaking words into their component parts and applying knowledge through exercises and examples from patient care. Throughout the book, information is organised into friendly, accessible, learning modules which are presented in a helpful, template format. Abundant fill-in exercises and helpful diagrams also aid the process of analysing and learning medical terms.

In this latest fifth edition, Andy Hutton has brought the book completely up-to-date by with the addition of new exercises and more information on common pathological conditions, medical procedures and laboratory tests. Each unit now includes a comprehensive list of associated words that are often used in combination with specific medical terms in patient records and medical publications.

An Introduction to Medical Terminology for Health Care is suitable for medical secretaries and clerical staff - particularly those on AMSPAR courses, foundation level nursing and allied health students, CMA (AAMA) candidates and anyone undertaking the SQA National Progression Award in administration for medical receptionists and secretaries.
