New website helps Spanish-speaking patients communicate more effectively with their medical providers

Conozca las preguntas
(Know the questions), a new Spanish-language website of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) located at www.ahrq.gov/preguntas, offers Spanish-speaking patients tips to improve their communication with their medical providers.

AHRQ data show that the proportion of Hispanics reporting poor communication with their providers is widening.

The website also features downloadable public service announcements (PSAs) from AHRQ’s nationwide campaign with the Ad Council.

A special website for mobile phone users is also available at http://4in.fo/Y9SAwg, and those interested in receiving biweekly tips on talking with their doctors can get them by texting 80676/Preguntas.

For a free, continuous-loop DVD of the public service ads, Abre la boca (Open your mouth), for waiting room showing, as well as free supplies of Conoce usted cuales son las preguntas correctas que debe hacer? (Do You Know the Right Questions to Ask?), a bilingual card with 10 key questions patients may want to ask their medical providers, contact [email protected].
