Insights into Biomedical Translation Possibilities in Health Sciences- Dr Marie Teibowei is among the very first to sets the standard in this space in Africa
Biomedical translation now occupies a central position in the world of medicine. It certainly plays an important role in knowledge medication, which involves sharing medical research results and publicizing new findings.
The book “the Intersectionality of Language and Biomedical Translations” written by Dr. Marie Teibowei and Teibowei Jennifer therefore considers such issues that connect Language and Biomedical Translation, the role of translation in Biomedical Research, the challenges of medical terminology translation, the impact of language barriers in patient care, cultural considerations in biomedical translations, standardization of biomedical translation, the future of biomedical translation and its implication on Global Health.
It likens Biomedical Translations to the heartbeat of the medical profession. Just as a human being can not exist without the heart, so is the field of medicine without Biomedical Translation. The field of Biomedical Science is one that is constantly evolving and growing, with new discoveries and advancements being made every day. Language plays a crucial role in this field, as it is the means by which researchers and healthcare professionals communicate their findings and provide treatment to patients. This book explores the various ways in which language is essential to biomedical science, including its role in research, patient care, and global health.
One of the most obvious ways in which language is important in Biomedical Science is through the communication of research findings. Scientists and researchers use language to describe their experiments, report their results, and present their conclusions.
The accuracy and clarity of the language is crucial as it allows other scientists to understand and replicate their research. Inaccurate or misleading language can lead to misinterpretation of results and impede progress in the field.
Additionally, the use of specialized terminology and jargon in biomedical research can make it difficult for non-experts to understand and access the information, highlighting the importance of clear and accessible language in scientific communication.
Another important aspect of the Intersectionality between language and Biomedical Science is in patient care. Healthcare professionals use language to communicate with patients and provide information about their diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Clear and accurate language is essential in this context, as it helps patients understand their health condition and make informed decisions about their care.
The book: “Intersectionality of Language and Biomedical Translations” is a veritable resource material for Scholars, Health practitioners, Translators and Interpreters specialized in the field of medicine. It covers eleven chapters.
