"This title will be useful for the intended audience. However, there's a great need for qualified/certified Spanish medical interpreters to be available at a moment's notice. We all know that medical interpretation should always be done by medical interpreters and not by staff members who, despite speaking Spanish, are not certified. It's important to have high standards for interpreting in medicine."

-- Maria Echeverria-Raddatz, BA (Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital) Doody's Review


This title is appropriate for any health providers -- students, fellows, residents, attendings, APNs -- who have Spanish speaking patients. Language can be a barrier to communicating what both provider and family have to say and ask. The book covers different specialties as well as different ages of children.
