New content added to English for Nurses course

Subscribers to our English for Nurses course will notice a new study unit on Diabetes has appeared this morning.

As part of our commitment to keeping all our courses up to date, we regularly add new content covering an ever-widening range of key healthcare topics.

Diabetes is a significant public health issue. Incidence has escalated rapidly over the last three decades. Recent research[1] showed that more than half a billion people are living with diabetes worldwide, and that number is projected to more than double to 1.3 billion people in the next 30 years, with every country seeing an increase.

The new unit on Diabetes has six units, covering vocabulary, communication skills, dialogues with patients, pronunciation and more:

  • – The body: the pancreas
  • – Types of diabetes
  • – Asking about diabetes symptoms
  • – Asking about diabetes complications
  • – Diabetes testing
  • – Talking about diabetes medication

Inputs include animated videos, audio recordings, and articles. Activities include vocabulary practice, dialogue and article comprehension, interactive text completion, and voice recording.

We hope all our English for Nursing students enjoy and learn from this new unit on such an important health topic.

And keep your eyes out – more coming soon!
