Language Services Associates, Inc. – Working to Create Healthier Communities through Better Communication
National Health Education Week – #MyImpact #InterpreterImpact
Horsham, PA – October 17, 2018 – Healthy communities are diverse communities. Varying walks of life coming together to share, build, and grow. “This is the foundation of the American dream and aiding this dream has been LSA’s mission for over a quarter century”, said LSA’s CEO and Founder, Laura K.T. Schriver.
Providing effective communication is vital to the well-being of some of the most vulnerable members of our society. In any healthcare environment, language services support dramatically increases the effectiveness of interactions with individuals of limited English proficiency (ILEP).
The more effective these interactions are, the more positive the outcomes. And with more positive outcomes, the stronger and healthier our communities become. Often misunderstood or underappreciated, however, working with an interpreter can sometimes seem daunting.
To help change this perception and build stronger communities, LSA is embracing 2018’s National Health Education Week’s initiative of #myimpact by releasing a series of informational animated shorts showcasing tips on how to better work with interpreters to improve ILEP patient care.
Providing interpretation services for over a quarter century has given LSA a unique perspective on how to best work with interpreters. Our animated series debuts with a video that provides helpful tips on how to handle situations where an ILEP speaks some English and prefers not to utilize an interpreter. In the coming months, LSA will offer more advice for navigating call center and behavioral health interactions.
