Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Our OB/GYN Clinic schedules approximately 2,000 obstetrical and gynecological appointments every month. Our patients come from many ethnic communities and frequently do not speak English. Patients immigrating from Central and South America and Somalia represent the majority of the non-English speaking populations. Patient education is a vital nursing activity. The nurses spend many hours instructing patients. Interpreters are used to facilitate communication as appropriate. As part of the patient education program, culturally appropriate handouts were created. Our patients, however, frequently cannot or do not read them. Often their reading levels in their primary languages are fifth grade or less. as many of our patients report enjoyment with television watching, the nursing staff created video programs on a variety educational topics in Spanish and Somali languages. Video productions are expensive. With generous funding from our hospital's Service Board and the March of Dimes, videos concerning the colposcopy procedure, the new obstetrical patient and fetal movement counting were produced. Additional televisions and videotape components were obtained through grants. References: Berbey, R. Manduley, A., & Virgil-DeGracia, P. (2001).
