Removing Language Barriers in Healthcare

 

One of the strongest barriers to quality health care is the inability to communicate appropriately with providers. As both Ohio grows increasingly more diverse, it is critically important to utilize more innovative methods of combating language barriers many consumers face.

There are a number of resources for providers who may serve a substantial Spanish-speaking population. Familiarizing ourselves with basic medical terms can be of tremendously assistance in improving communication. The link below allows self-paced learning and should be widely shared.

College Resources for Students with Disabilities

 

MACC is committed to providing information on health disparities across the spectrum. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, during the 2011-12 academic year, 11.1% of undergraduates reported having a disability. While these students may face unique challenges, they are entitled to the same quality of education as all students. To further assist students, teachers, and family members, a team of experts at BestColleges.com published a guide for students with disabilities outlining their legal rights, where to find assistance on campus, and an extensive list of websites, apps and software resources designed for students’ specific needs.
