Mastering Medical Terminology

Australia and New Zealand

Mastering Medical Terminology: Australia and New Zealand is the essential resource for Australian and New Zealand students of medical terminology.

Featuring entirely Australian spelling and pronunciation, this comprehensive guide forms part of a suite of learning tools which comprises the  full-colour reference text, a workbook which can either be purchased in paperback or online and a mobile phone app. All compenents of this suite are available for separate purchase to enable you to pick and choose the right package for your learning requirements. There are also extensive free instructors only resources via Elsevier's Evolve platform.

With an accessible and user-friendly approach, the text will help you learn how to break down words into their component parts and memorise the meanings of these parts. The introductory section is followed by a logical progression of chapters devoted to individual body systems and systemic diseases, offering each area’s associated vocabulary, concepts and pronunciation guides as well as review activities for self-testing.

The book also includes two areas not normally covered in medical terminology texts: ‘Complementary and Alternative Therapies’ and ‘Public Health, Epidemiology and Research Terms’.

Mastering Medical Terminology: Australia and New Zealand is an indispensable learning guide, making the scholarship of medical terminology not only manageable, but fun!
