Medication Information for Patients with Limited English Proficiency: Lessons from the European Union
Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics
Misuse or misunderstanding of medication information is a common and costly problem in the U.S. The risks of misunderstanding medication information are compounded for the large and growing population of individuals with limited English proficiency that often lacks access to this information in their own language. This paper examines practices related to translation of medication information in the European Union that may serve as a model for future U.S. policy efforts to improve the quality and availability of medication information for individuals with limited English proficiency. © 2012 American Society of Law, Medicine & Ethics, Inc.
