Spanish for Medical
Today's medical professionals must adapt to meet the challenges that come with the growing diversity in the health care population demographic. Some of these challenges are not only linguistic but also cultural at their root. This often necessitates that health care providers learn to clearly and effectively communicate with patients and their relatives in a second language.
The reality for many health care professionals is that Spanish is the first language of a large percentage of the population served. Miscommunication and misunderstanding of critical information can have a negative impact on every day patient care, not to mention situations where matters of life and death are at stake.
Possessing the ability to speak basic Spanish will reduce the need for providers to enlist the services of an interpreter for common everyday communication tasks.
