The new edition of Mastering Healthcare Terminology offers a unique, powerful approach to understanding and using healthcare language to clearly communicate with other health care team members. Organized by body system, each chapter presents material in ?chunks? - small learning segments of related concepts, terms, and abbreviations. These segments are immediately followed by exercises that reinforce and assess the reader's mastery of the material. End-of-chapter exercises encourage readers to apply what they've learned through case studies with accompanying healthcare reports, and a cumulative review tests their knowledge of previous chapters. Colorful illustrations and informative boxes and tables reinforce key concepts and make it easy to quickly locate important information. New features include more medical records, new sections on pediatrics and geriatrics; new appendices on imaging, laboratory procedures, and pharmacology; and an updated companion CD filled with helpful learning games and exercises.
