Summary:This session will provide information and terminology at an ELEMENTARY LEVEL 2 level used in the medical field and the healthcare industry. It is suitable for translators and interpreters who plan to work or are already working in the field or with medical or healthcare documents and who want to expand their vocabulary and understanding of concepts at the level of a nurse. (The session is language-neutral delivered in English but appropriate for any language pair.)
This 90 minute session covers hundreds of terms at an elementary level 2 --nurse level-- as used in medical encounters and medical documents in relation to the human body and associated components, conditions, illnesses and disease, and processes in a science-based manner. It describes terms used in the medical and nursing fields as well as the healthcare system in general, presenting a systematic approach to word building and term comprehension.

This is a fast-pace, intense, session with an upbeat and lively mood, that requires full engagement on the part of the participant in terms of ACTIVE listening, individual thinking and processing of information, as well as hands-on note-taking and interactive activities. HANDS-ON exercises will also be suggested to be completed AFTER the session.

This is one more session that forms part of the bundles focusing on the progressive acquisition of skills in terminology used in healthcare and medicine, legal settings and finance and business, and tips on how to build better glossaries.
