Publisher's Summary

Can you remember, pronounce, and spell the active ingredient in the last medicine you took or gave your child? Administrators, are you sure every employee providing patients medicines can pronounce and spell them perfectly? If you have any doubt, whether you are listening to this book in a doctor's office, a pharmacy, or a hospital room, I wrote this book for you. A revolution is happening in health care. In the past, nurses, pharmacists, and doctors spoke together at length with families about their concerns and medicines. But now, patients receive only distracted attention as their health professionals tangle with billing, electronic records, and insurance obstacles. This shortened communication frustrates doctors and patients who want to connect. Patients find themselves isolated because they don't speak the language of medicine. This book teaches that language by translating medication names with plain English words.

Excellent source to learn drug names!

Pronouncing drug names can be very intimidating. This book, HELPS me a lot! I like that it is on the go and hands free. I have 4 kids and I’m always on the go. This helps me learn as I cook, clean or even on the car. I also like the fact that I can go back if I need a little more work a certain drug name. It’s definitely worth the listening!

For people like me, who have trouble understanding how to pronounce complex words like these drugs, having this audiobook available is very helpful. This audiobook is also helpful for those who have a long commute to work or school. Overall, I would recommend this book for people studying Pharmacology.

review

This book was a lot easier to read than to listen to. I think just by actually looking at the book it's obvious why. The narrator was okay. It served its purpose in class but I'm not sure it was helpful to listen to.

Great for Help with pronouncing medications!

This is such a great read to help with many different medication pronunciations. My favorite chapter is chapter 'C' when you have different resources to that you can go to, like his YouTube videos to see and test yourself on the medications. I personally struggle with saying medications but this book is very helpful in breaking down the parts of the words to help you pronounce it. My favorite part is quizzing myself using his YouTube video to make sure I am pronouncing it correctly. A great read, and highly recommend if you struggle with reading/pronouncing medications, like myself. HayleeS
