EDUCATION: Spotlight! on NLM Resources – Multiple Language Resources – Wed. May 22

Monday, May 13th, 2013
  • Spotlight on National Library of Medicine Resources – Wed. May 22, 2013, 1:00 MT, 2:00 CT – Multiple Language Resources.

Research conducted over the past 25 years has shown a strong correlation between language barriers and poor quality health care. Language can affect the accuracy of patient histories, the ability to engage in treatment decision-making, poorer understanding of a medical diagnosis or treatment, underuse of primary and preventative services, lower use and misuse of prescription medications, and a decreased level of patient trust. In the MidContinental Region there are many languages used:  American Sign Language, Arabic, Cambodian, Chinese, Cushite, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Laotian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, Swahili, Tagalog, Thai, Urdu, and Vietnamese. Maybe more! In this session, Dana Abbey will discuss free and authoritative resources for meeting the multi-language health information needs in your community.

One MLA CE credit will be available for this class.
