- Book Review: Introduction to Healthcare for Spanish-Speaking Interpreters and Translators.
The section provides a good review for interpreters who have been or are being introduced to these topics in basic training. The real treasure of this book, however, is found in parts 2 and 3. Part 2 takes the reader on a tour of the Western healthcare system, providing a map of the world of primary care, specialty care, inpatient care and emergency care.
Here Dr. Crezee introduces the reader to the different professionals who work in these settings and to the common protocols and procedures in each. Especially valuable are the listings of likely questions that interpreters can expect in various healthcare interactions, providing interpreters with a wonderful opportunity for practice and preparation. This section also includes a special treatment of obstetrics, neonatal care, pediatrics, speech therapy, mental health and oncology.
Part 3 is an introduction to the many specialty areas of health care. Each chapter focuses on information specific to a particular specialty: Latin and Greek roots, anatomy, physiology, treating professionals, common disorders, medications and procedures. While the treatment is not exhaustive, Dr. Clear line illustrations add to the value of this third section.
Introduction to Healthcare for Japanese-Speaking Interpreters and Translators by Ineke H M Crezee
The final pages of this book include an index, making it easy to locate specific health information, as well as a list of useful websites for further study. I foresee this book being extremely useful to at least three groups of readers:. And like a good map of a coral reef in the hands of a scuba diver, it will help you know where you are going, what you can expect when you get there, and how to appropriately interpret what you see to the other divers you bring with you.
