cultural competence
language barriers
Abstract:There is an urgent and growing need for health practitioners who are bilingual and possess cultural competence, yet a pedagogical tool to shine light on this type of prowess cannot be found in our education nor our healthcare systems. This participatory action research project will culminate with a set of case studies to be used with undergraduate-level students of Spanish. The case studies will serve to inform students on the existing language and cultural barrier in the U.S. healthcare system and to inspire conversation and problem-solving regarding the linguistic and cultural needs of a patient with limited English proficiency or without legal citizen status.
