New Multilingual Materials from Healthy Roads Media
Healthy Roads Media has responded to numerous requests for materials available in a format which could be used in closed-circuit television or video-on-demand systems by hospitals, large clinics, educational systems and social service systems to provide information to populations they are trying to serve.
Healthy Roads Media has recently converted approximately thirty topics into an MPEG video format that will work in these systems. To cover the costs of this effort and maintain the resources, a fee will be requested for these files.
Additions to content offerings also continue to be made. For example:
- The emergency preparedness series is now available in Arabic. It is also available in English, Bosnian, Somali and Spanish. All materials are available in five formats: handouts, audio, multimedia, web-video and iPod video.
- A multi-part series that presents information about the medication Coumadin (warfarin) is now available in both English and Spanish. The content is adapted from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The materials are available in the 5 free formats and in MPEG versions for video-on-demand hospital systems.
