by Myrna Breskin (Author), Kevin Dumith (Author), Enid Pearsons (Author), Robert Seeman (Author)
- Kevin Dumith has teamed up with Myrna Breskin to compile the McGraw Hill Allied Health Dictionary. With Kevin's long experience working as a medical terminology instructor in a career college and with Myrna's background as a lexicographer, the dictionary has the combined experience of these two people directing a staff that has written a truly useful reference book. This dictionary will be the only one on the market specifically aimed at the allied health level. This important distinction makes it a very salable product for a student population that has traditionally found the learning of medical terminology one of the most challenging in the allied health curriculum. It is written for the student who finds the higher level dictionaries written for the health care practitioner too difficult to understand and to navigate. the definitions are clear and concise. The only etymologies given are useful word-building breakdowns that reinforce this skill necessary to understanding medical terms. The appendices make this reference a tool that will follow the allied health student into the workplace as a keeper for a long time to come. beautiful illustrations as well as instructive and helpful text.
