Medical Terminology: A Programmed Approach is the ideal resource for instructors and students wanting a concise and systematic approach to learning the language of health care. Recognizing that students learn medical terminology by constructing and deconstructing words into their parts, the authors have built this process into the text and the numerous exercises. The approach builds and constantly reinforces skills needed to deal with increasingly complicated terms. A body systems organization is used, providing a clear content framework for the text. Each body system chapter separates words into easily learnable groups: major parts of each system; word parts related to each system; and diagnostic, pathological, surgical and pharmacological terms. Carefully chosen chapter features help bring the subject to life, and add an on-the-job perspective. Case-study information is built into examples, and real medical documents are used whenever appropriate. Internet references are included throughout, to emphasize the importance of online resources and tools. While most activities are straight-forward practice exercises, word-building and critical thinking skills are also built in. Wherever possible, material on Complementary and Alternative Medicine ("CAM") is included to highlight this growing area of medicine. In addition to the text, students will be able to access a wealth of electronic resources to aid their studies: The Student CD-ROM will include a suite of activity-based learning tools: crossword puzzles, "Hangman" game, "Concentration", term to definition matching, audio feedback, and "That's Epidemic", an activity focusing on pathology terms. Exercises are gradable online, or can be used for self-paced review. The Online Learning Center website ("OLC") will provide a set of additional self-test questions; chapter study outlines; web links of interest; and additional word-building activities. An optional Spanish/English audio CD ROM is available, which includes pronunciations of key medical terms in both languages. English-language audio CD ROMs (2) are also available as an optional package item; these include pronunciation of all terms included in the text. Instructors will also finds a wealth of teaching & learning resources for their classes: The Instructor's Manual ("IM") will contain answers to all exercises, teaching strategy suggestions, and discussion of word-building techniques. The Instructor Productivity Center CD ROM ("IPC") will contain the IM in electronic form; PowerPoint presentations for each chapter; and electronic test generator and test banks (with 300 questions).
