ESSENTIALS OF MEDICAL LANGUAGE FOR MODERN HEALTH CARE provides students with an active learning approach. It isEasy to Usebecause of the carefully planned content; students see all of the information they need on lay-flat two-page spreads. They no longer need to flip forward or backward to see definitions, word parts, or illustrations.Easy to Teachbecause of the visual, detailed lesson plans in the Instructor's Manual. Even novice instructors will have everything they need in one place.Easy to Implementbecause of the detailed syllabi and lessons plans as well as "How To Teach Medical Terminology" training on the OLC. Chapters in the textbook are organized by body system in accordance with an overall anatomy and physiology (A & P) approach. Lessons introduce and define terminology through the context of A & P, pathology, and clinical and diagnostic procedures/tests. The organization of the body systems into chapters is based on an "outside to inside" sequence that reflects a physician's differential diagnosis method used during an examination. To provide students with an authentic context, students actually step into the role of an allied health professional associated with each specialty. Patient cases and documentation are used to illustrate the real-life application of medical terminology in modern health care: to care for and communicating with patients, and to interact with other members of the health care team. The A & P organizational approach, used in conjunction an authentic medical setting and patient cases, encourages student motivation and facilitates active, engaged learning. The unique interior design of the text makes it much easier for students to learn medical terms and apply those terms in numerous exercises and applications.
