Prospanish Healthcare: Spanish for Emergency Medical Service Providers
By Rios, Joanna and Fernandez Torres, Jose

Just what non-Spanish-speaking emergency medical service providers need

As the Hispanic population within the United States rises, medical personnel are increasingly faced with the challenge of communicating with Spanish-speaking patients--but without effective means of language acquisition. ProSpanish Healthcare: Spanish for Emergency Medical Service Providers presents a solid grasp of practical, conversational Spanish. Designed around audio and visual elements for ease of learning, these resources present key grammatical structures, all the essential vocabulary, colloquial terms and expressions, and cultural insights that will enable medical professionals to communicate effectively with Spanish-speaking patients. This audio course is for first responders, EMTs, emergency physicians, paramedics, and ER staff.

Each audio package contains:

  • 224-page illustrated course book with two 75-minute audiocassettes
  • 60-minute vocabulary audiocassette focusing on the specialized terminology required in each medical field
  • Continuing Medical Education credit test booklet
  • Exercises that simulate the written tests set by the specific professional accreditations bodies
