A Quick Refresher
¡Bienvenidos! (Welcome!) Today, you'll get a chance to brush up on your basic Spanish. First, we'll review friendly greetings you can use to put patients at ease. Then we'll delve into articles (those little words you use to say the, a, an, or some) and check out Spanish pronouns. And finally, we'll explore el cuerpo (the body) from head to toe.
The Front Office
The first stop for most of our patients is at the reception desk—so that's where we'll start today's journey as well. After a quick refresher on present-tense verbs, you'll learn handy words and phrases for asking patients how you can help them. Next, you'll dive into common questions on the forms that patients fill out in the waiting room. And finally, we'll tackle insurance forms en español.
Nursing on the Hospital Floors
In today's lesson, we'll be visiting the nurses on the floors at our virtual hospital. First, you'll find out how your Spanish-speaking patients use the verb tener to talk about their needs and feelings. After that, we'll talk about reflexive verbs—some handy words to know when you're helping patients with daily living activities. And finally, we'll explore vocabulary words you can use to assess and help patients.
More Words for Assessing Patients
In this lesson, we'll start by translating two medical acronyms for assessing patients—SAMPLE and OPQRST—into español. Then we'll tackle irregular verbs and conjugate both stem-changers and goverbs. And after that, we'll head back to the nurses on the floors, where we'll talk about ways to assess patients' pain and examine more vocabulary for discussing medical conditions.
Pediatric and Geriatric Exams
In this lesson, we'll focus on your youngest patients—and on the oldest as well. That's because we'll delve into vocabulary you can use in pediatric and geriatric settings. In addition, you'll learn how to use the "command" form of verbs, which will really beef up your ability to give your patients instructions. And as a bonus, I'll share some interesting cultural tidbits that will help you understand your Spanish-speaking patients better.
Patients experience lots of different emotions, and today you'll learn words for talking about these feelings. In addition, you'll master new vocabulary for discussing mental health problems and tackle a couple of new verb tenses you can use to talk about the past.
It's one of the most puzzling questions when you're learning Spanish: When should you use the verbser, and when should you choose estar instead? Today, we'll clear up that mystery—and we'll also take a peek at the oh-so-easy present progressive verb tense. Then you'll learn basic gynecological terms and master vocabulary related to prenatal care, birth, postpartum care, and breastfeeding.
Radiology and Orthopedics
To find out what's going on with our patients, we often need to take a peek inside them with the help of X-rays, MRIs, and other tests—and today, we'll explore how to talk about these tests in Spanish. In addition, we're going to dip a toe into the field of orthopedics and discuss basic vocabulary you can use in this specialty. And for our daily dose of grammar, we'll investigate more ways to describe time, especially when it comes to finding out how long ago something happened. ¡Vamos!
Cardiology, Pulmonology, and Oncology
In English, we frequently say things like "I just ate" or "he just left"—and today, you'll learn how to translate that handy word just into Spanish. In addition, you'll master vocabulary related to the circulatory and respiratory system and find out how to talk with Spanish-speaking patients who are diagnosed with cancer.
Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Dietary Services
We all have lots of things we need to do—and today, you'll learn how to say "I need to . . . " or "it is necessary to" by using the expressions tener que and hay que. In addition, you'll master vocabulary related to physical and occupational therapy, as well as words for talking about foods and diet.
Dentistry, Ophthalmology, and Optometry
In this lesson, we'll have some fun looking at false cognates—words that look much the same ininglés and español, but actually have different meanings. After that, we'll delve into words you can use to compare things or conditions in Spanish. And finally, we'll investigate vocabulary you can use in the dentist's or the eye doctor's office.
Pharmacy and the Discharge Office
In your final lesson, you'll discover how to give advice using the word debería and master vocabulary for talking about medication dosages and discharge procedures. After that, we'll explore words and phrases you can use to counsel patients about preventive care.
