Before We continue...
Lets take a look
at
the funny
English below..

Why do we need English in


medical field ?
Patient come in all

different shapes
and sizes
Speak different
languages
There will come a
time when you will
need to rely on
English to
communicate

English In Medicine

English is a language of
the world; an
international means of
communication for
business, science,
technology and medicine
Increasing globalisation
more and more medical
personnel need a
knowledge of English for
their work or studies.

Medical English

English for medical


purposes.
Doctors, nurses,
pharmacist, etc.
Concentrates more on
language in context than
on teaching grammar
and language structure.
Reading journals, seminars,
communication with patient,
writing medical report, etc.

Medical English
Improved language

skills can advance your


career and allow you
to communicate
fluently with your
counterparts (and
perhaps work) in other
countries.

Medical

terminologyislangua
ge that is used to
accurately describe
thehuman bodyand
associated
components,
conditions, processes
and process in a
science-based manner.

Example 1:
How do you explain

to the patient with


Fracture of 1/3
Proximal Femur
Dextra?

Example 2 :
How do you explain

about Typhoid fever


to the patient and
family?

Good Communication
Improves patient care
Creates a good rapport

(relationship) with your patient


Use effective body language
(eye contact)
Allow enough consultation
time
Listen well
always use language that
your patient understands Avoid medical jargon

What the Patient says!


Ooh, Ive got really bad guts Dr! = Ive

got pain in my abdomen


Ive been puking for 2 days! = Ive been
vomiting for 2 days
I broke my collar bone 6 months ago = I
broke my clavicle..
Im having trouble down below! = Im
having trouble with my genitals
Ive been bleeding from my back
passage = Ive been bleeding from my anus

What the Dr can say!


Instead of asking please inhale Say

please breathe in or a take a deep breath


Instead of administering an intra-venous
Infusion Give your patient a drip
Instead of asking where does the pain
radiate? Ask does the pain go anywhere
else?
Instead of saying you need an endoscopy
Say we need to pass a tube with a camera
into your stomach
