Original "Voice Lost" Poem by Victoria Roberts is Winner of #canopyconvos
Canopy Innovations was thrilled to receive this original poem from Victoria Roberts as a submission to the #canopyconvos contest. It is a beautiful reflection on the harrowing nature of the linguistic and cultural barrier in healthcare.
A few words from Victoria:
Recently, DUSON worked with Canopy Innovations to strengthen its commitment to the Spanish-speaking population, currently numbering 41 million in the United States. Canopy has helped DUSON to diversify and enrich their medical Spanish offering for the entire nursing student body.
Canopy is proud to be referenced in a major study published in Advances in Medical Education and Practice.
Preliminary data suggest that incorporation of a longitudinal Spanish language and cultural competency curriculum for Emergency Medicine (EM) residents has a beneficial impact on patient satisfaction and adherence to medical recommendations for Spanish-speaking patients who are limited English proficient. Canopy Learn — Canopy’s NIH-funded online medical Spanish course — was one of the components of this curriculum that has demonstrated improvement in patient experience and medical adherence.
