Every English-speaking health professional who works with Spanish-speaking patients will appreciate this handy resource. Two of California's leading Spanish language educators present a wide variety of questions dealing with a full range of health issues -- from medical to administrative, from psychiatric to nutritional, from greetings and social amenities to medical forms. Designed to elicit a 'yes or no' answer, these questions are ideal for users with no knowledge of Spanish. The new 4th Edition offers updated and expanded coverage of mental health and psychiatry, workplace injury and occupational health, AIDS/HIV, child and adult vaccinations, environmental toxins, sun exposure, sports medicine, cancer, and much more.
