    German for the Healthcare professional

    Match your language skills with your healthcare competence.

    Communication is a critical component in the business of healthcare services, particularly in conversing with patients, their family and friends, fellow healthcare colleagues, therapists and doctors. The transfer of vital information regarding a patient’s health is the primary focus in these encounters. Proper communication services the diagnosis as much as the treatment. International nursing professionals in clinics and emergency rooms require more than a understanding of the medical terminology but also the cultural nuances of the language. „German for Nursing Professionals“ helps you master this challenge.Nursing professionals learn how to communicate and orient themselves in the German healthcare system and clinics through tried and proven methods. Emphasis is placed on communication with patients utilizing case history and nursing care.Practical roleplay scenarios train your communication with co-workers and managers based on realistic nursing situations, discussions regarding nursing challenges as well as converstaions with doctors and patients’s relatives. Specific areas of nursing care may also be addressed upon request.

    Das Seminar hat meine Erwartungen sogar noch übertroffen. Die geringe Teilnehmerzahl ermöglichte ein sehr effizientes und sogar individuelles Arbeiten. Das Seminar war durch die Bank weg sehr praxisorientiert und ich konnte die Inhalte direkt am Arbeitsplatz umsetzen.
