Pharmacy and nursing faculty members Dr. Elisa Greene and Dr. Jamie Adam published “’Providing care across a language barrier’ – A program at the intersection of inter-professional education and co-curricular engagement” in Currents in Pharmacy Teaching and Learning.
The article describes a novel 6-hour inter-professional, co-curricular program addressing barriers, resources, misconceptions and strategies for improving health care provision across language barriers. This collaborative effort was made available for continuing education in nursing and pharmacy, and students from both disciplines were invited to attend.
The authors discuss the need for culturally and linguistically appropriate services and the fertile ground for inter-professional collaboration in practice and education. The full article is available here: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1bx7A6gprIBGlY.
