Synopsis:
Medical Terminology for Interpreters, 4th edition, is much more than an update-it's a whole new publication. More than twice the length of its predecessor, this new edition: Explores ten human body systems (instead of six). Body systems include: musculoskeletal, integumentary, circulatory, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, immune, digestive, urinary and reproductive. Offers many new exercises for body parts, tests and procedures, signs and symptoms, less common medical abbreviations and more. Updates all 3rd edition exercises and includes many more advanced exercises. Provides role plays for practice and other self-assessment tools. Helps interpreters prepare for medical interpreter certification. The handbook includes instructions for groups, "study buddies" or self-study for each activity as well as a glossary of Greek and Latin roots and affixes. An answer key is included for all activities, in addition to Spanish translations for terms in those activities. The new edition still addresses contract interpreters and bilingual staff but now better meets the needs of hospital staff interpreters.
