An introduction to medical terminology for health care

by Andrew Hutton | 02 August 2016
Category: Medical
Synopsis
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. A self-directed learning package that requires no previous knowledge of medical terminology New design with icons to direct the reader and facilitate the learning process Case Histories help put the words into a 'real life' context Over 120 clear images enable students to associate medical terms with human anatomy and medical equipment Self-assessment modules allow readers to test their knowledge of the meaning of word components and their association with a disease, anatomical feature or medical specialty Simple, non-technical descriptions of pathological conditions, symptoms, laboratory tests, medical instruments and clinical procedures Numerous fill-in word exercises to ensure fast and effective learning Comprehensive abbreviation lists and a glossary A valuable resource for readers taking the City and Guilds (AMSPAR) exams or CMA (AAMA) exams in medical terminology Fresh design and updated artwork program gives added appeal to the volume Each unit contains a list of common associated words often used in conjunction with specific medical terms in patient records and medical publications More information on pathological conditions, laboratory tests and clinical procedures Self-assessment exercises on medical specialties Revised lists of common abbreviations associated with each speciality
