Description: Japanese for Healthcare Professionals provides a language course-for classroom use or for self-study-that will enable professionals to prepare themselves to assist patients from Japan. Grounded in the author's research with clinics and hospitals, it is the only book of its kind in English. Japanese for Healthcare Professionals is a proficiency-based conversation textbook. It offers a complete language course that teaches Japanese grammar along with the vocabulary of medical care. The chapters cover every step of a patient's interaction with care providers, from appointments and admissions to the physical examination, symptoms and illnesses, diagnosis, treatment, instructions to the patient, discharge, and follow-up. Chapters are devoted to the major branches of medicine as well as dentistry and to the corresponding bodily systems. There are also chapters on anatomy, infection and disease, and visits to the pharmacy. Each chapter follows a natural progression designed to help the learner comprehend the new material and acquire the language as effortlessly as possible. Each includes: basic vocabulary, a situational dialogue, grammar points and key sentences to illustrate them, useful expressions and additional vocabulary, language and culture notes, exercises and practice drills, and a quiz to sharpen comprehension. The culture and language notes seek to help the provider understand better a Japanese patient's cultural framework and patterns of belief, as well as the "untranslatable" meaning conveyed by certain idioms. The accompanying audio CD ties in to core parts of each chapter, allowing learners to practice their spoken language skills outside a classroom setting. Japanese script is provided for the benefit of advanced learners and native speakers. The book also includes thirty illustrations to help with vocabulary acquisition.
