Medical - Medical: Health Care
English term or phrase: elements
Unless the patient communicates the content of what he/she reads to someone else, it is not possible to judge whether he/she actually reads or not, in a way that shows ***elements*** of comprehension and retention of information.
Does this part "shows elements of comprehension and retention of information" mean "shows the patient understands and remembers the information to some degree”?
Thank you very much in advance!
