Spanish for Health Care Providers

Thursdays, February 28 and March 14, 2013, 8:30am4:30pm

You, the healthcare provider, are the client’s partner in health care. You must elicit the client’s symptoms, the client’s concerns, and the client’s health history. After assuring the client, you must mutually plan the care and motivate the client to move toward mutually established goals. You need a common language in order to accomplish these goals. This class is designed to give the non-Spanish speaker the key phrases and words to allow you to provide care for Spanish speaking clients.
