Intercultural Competence in EMP Training: A Case Study and Implications for Syllabus Design

Abstract

Due to the development of global economy and increased geographical and occupational mobility, communication with people from multicultural backgrounds has become commonplace in many healthcare institutions. As the demographic profiles of both patients and medical personnel are increasingly varied, intercultural competence (IC) has become an integral component of English for Medical Purposes (EMP) training. However, are medical students generally familiar with the notion of intercultural competence? What intercultural aspects should they be aware of in order to practise effectively when they graduate? The aim of this article is to present medical students′ understanding of IC based on a survey conducted among undergraduate learners at the Medical University of Bialystok, Poland. The article begins with a discussion on intercultural competence in the context of health care. Following this, a discussion on why intercultural competence needs to be incorporated and used in Medical English programmes is presented.

Market Basket Analysis as a Support Tool for The Management of Public Transport

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to characterize a non-standard use of the method of market basket analysis in one of the areas of economy, i.e. public transport. Generally, one of the aims of the market basket analysis method is associating the consumer's market basket – in the case of public transport this being the choice of bus stops in the city area made by passengers. Owing to a new, practical use of this method, it was possible to build an efficient model characterizing the movement of flows of public transport passengers, and assess the degree of transferring (changing lines), thus making it possible to adapt the routes of buses to the needs of people using this particular means of transport, as well as to plot new communication lines.

The data analysis was performed using the Statistica statistical package and its SAL application, i.e. the algorithms used in Data Mining.

Socially Induced Changes in Legal Terminology

Abstract

The author intends to present evolutionary and revolutionary changes in legal terminology. Legal terminology changes as a result of language usage, technological development, political and social changes and even economy reasons. The following research methods have been applied: the terminological analysis of the research material (empirical observation, analysis of comparable texts and parametric approach to legal terminology comparison) and the analysis of pertinent literature. The research material included legislation from the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada and Australia. The author focuses on terminological changes resulting from social transformations. Selected terms and their transformation in respect to meaning and form are elaborated on in the paper. Finally, the author draws conclusions that translation of such terminology should aim at communication precision and many of them may be false friends in interlingual communication.

On Legal Interpretation of Basic Consumer Rights

Abstract.

The liability of an entrepreneur towards a consumer is the specific kind of contractual responsibility. The typical feature of this regime is weakness of two principles that are basic for market economy: freedom of contracts and pacta sunt servanda principle. This liability is regulated by specific acts of law. Its object is to intensify the legal protection of the consumer.

Nowadays in the Polish law, the form of legal provisions concerning pro- tection of the consumer, is influenced by European Union law, especially con- sumerist directives. The Act on specific terms and conditions of consumer sale, on 27th July 2002, has huge practical significance. The basic premise of this lia- bility is the fact of ’nonconformity of goods with the contract’. Therefore there is no need to prove any damage and other premises inseparably connected with damage liability. Moreover, it must be noticed that normally specific acts of law concerning protection of the consumer, do not entirely realize the compensatory function which is typical of general principles of contractual responsibility.
