Health Information Resources for Culturally Diverse Patients

Between 1990 and 2013, the U.S. population identified as having limited English proficiency grew 80 percent, from nearly 14 million to 25.1 million. Cultural diversity within the U.S. continues to increase.

If you provide care for patients or clients with limited English proficiency, do you know the library provides access to a range of quality multilingual, multicultural health information resources? If you’d like to know more about these resources, come to our Health Information Resources for Culturally Diverse Patients workshop.

Learn where to locate patient education resources, including medication information, available in other languages as well as those written in easy-to-read English.

Discussion will include the potential impact utilizing health literacy resources can have on patient adherence, safety, and satisfaction. Visit the Library’s Spring 2017 Workshop Schedule to register.

HS/HSL Can Help You Prepare for Graduation Research Day

Each school’s faculty librarian can meet with students to help them retrieve quality articles from a number of databases. The library’s Presentation Practice Studio is an ideal place to practice a presentation. The HS/HSL also offers poster printing. All posters are printed on 42″ x 60″ glossy paper and are available for pickup within two business days after submission.
