A comprehensive guide to improving communication with Spanish speaking patients, and their families, and English speaking medical personnel, Salud is an invaluable reference tool. It provides needed information to enable effective communication that will result in more thorough patient interviews, identification of existing conditions, and, ultimately, a more comfortable relationship between healthcare provider and patient.

A quick, easy-to-use reference book, Salud is for medical students, nurses, doctors, hospital administrators, health care personnel, home health care workers, social workers, and translators in the health care profession. The medical dictionary and alphabetical phrase sections will make it easy to find and cross-reference the correct Spanish-English words and phrases. There are also focused care dialogues ranging from AIDS, anesthesia, and breast exam, to unconscious patient, urinary retention, and visiting hours.

The materials in this book were adapted from a variety of English and Spanish language sources for the sole purpose of language enrichment and should not be construed as medical advice or instruction.
