Effective communication is crucial in the provision of health. This class is designed to help healthcare workers communicate with Spanish-speaking populations. We will apply skills learned in Level 1 and will continue to add scenarios in a medical interaction. The sessions will cover: common phrases in a clinical/medical interaction and patient instructions; common adjectives to describe levels of health issues; common phrases related to health and wellness; discussion of case studies; and the role of cultural beliefs in the provision of health. This class is appropriate for healthcare providers, students in the health field, public health professionals, and social service providers.
