Number one for English language teachers

Pain assessment

Part one of a series of English-language worksheets for nurses. In this set of reading and listening activities, students learn how to elicit the type and degree of pain experienced by their patients.

The assessment of pain is a complex activity that involves a consideration of the physical and psychological aspects of the individual. Because pain is a subjective experience, the nurse needs to be able to summarize the information gained against some objective criteria.

Students will learn:

  • vocabulary of the signs and symptoms of pain
  • adjectives to describe pain
  • open and closed questions
  • how to ask about symptoms
  • how to summarize a patient's symptoms

  • Hi Mariacam,

    To save the audio files to your Mac, hold down the Control (Ctrl) key, click on the file and select either ‘Open Link in New Window’ or ‘Open Link in New Tab’. Then go to the new window or tab and select ‘File / Save page as’. You can then choose a location on your Mac to save the MP3 file.

    Also the instructions for downloading are different depending on which browser you are using:

    Internet Explorer
    Right click on the audio link, and choose Save Target As …. Select the folder that you would like to save the file in and then click Save.

    Firefox
    Right click on the audio link, and choose Save Link As …. Select the folder that you would like to save the file in and then click Save.

    Chrome
    Right click on the audio link, and choose Save Link As …. Select the folder that you would like to save the file in and then click Save.

    Safari
    Right click (or Ctrl + click) on the audio link, and choose ‘Download Linked File’. A Downloads window should appear showing the downloaded file. If the Downloads window doesn’t appear, click on Windows Downloads. Once downloaded, you can listen to the files on a media player on your computer or transfer them to a portable MP3 player.

    If you are still having difficulties please contact our technical support team at help@macmillan.com.

    Hope the above is helpful!

  • Hi there,

    Thanks for your question. To clarify what is meant, Part 1 is free to all users all the time. The others part are also available to you while you have you 1-month free subscription. When that expires, the other parts will only be available to you if you subscribe.

    Many of our other series also have one lesson which is available to for free so users can sample the series before they subscribe.

    Hope that helps.
    Best wishes,

  • Please can you explain what is meant by 'Part one is free to all users'. I've got a one month free subscription. Does it mean that only Part one is available for me to use now, unless I take out a full subscription?
