New ‘Teach-back via an interpreter’ resource to assist health practitioners
North Western Primary Healthcare Network and the Centre for Culture Ethnicity & Health have developed a new resource that is an informative look at “teach-back” and how it can be an effective method for health practitioners in general and when used via an interpreter.
‘Teach-back’ enables better communication by inviting health practitioners to ask patients, to repeat key information verbally back to the practitioner to ensure mutual understanding and facilitate better care. This resource explains the “teach-back” model, provides case studies for you to follow the process and discusses the benefits to patients and clinicians
This resource will benefit practitioners as it outlines a straightforward method that can simplify a potentially complex situation in day to day practice.
