Psychiatric evaluation and psychotherapy in the patient's second language. There are also concerns that researchers may define costs and consequences of language barriers too narrowly; resulting in an under-estimation of the true societal costs of failure to provide language access. Initial analysis found that language disparity significantly increased the risk of hospital admission for adult, but not pediatric, patients. Prerequisites : (MATH 011 with a grade of "B" or higher or MATH 111 with a grade of "B" or higher) or an appropriate score on the math placement test. Language congruence/ disparity was not assessed in the survey, so no conclusions can be drawn as to underlying causes. This marginalization has resulted in little sharing of expertise between settlement and health services, limited funding for service pro-vision, training, or research, and limited impact on policy development. Health status of newcomers. Most of the Deaf community in Canada uses American Sign Language (ASL) for communication, although French Sign Language (LSQ) is also used. Access to and use of out-of-hours services by members of Vietnamese community groups in South London: a focus group study. Exclusion of certain ethnic g roups from biomedical research may mean that study results cannot be generalized to the entire population, and that less is known about risk factors, disease prevalence, and response to treatment of specific ethnocultural groups. Research that compares different ethnic groups, where language emerges as a possible or likely factor explaining differences; and. Unfortunately, in most cases, community-based interpretation services provided through immigrant-serving agencies have not been integrated with health services, and do not receive health funding. Using the estimates developed from a survey of average interpretation time, the total number of hours per month of staff "interpreter" time was calculated, and this figure multiplied by the average nu rse's salary. Culyer, A. Fitch, M. I., Greenberg, M., Levstein, L., Muir, M., Plante, S., & King, E. (1997). Interpreters who are family members may also withhold crucial evidence necessary for diagnosis and care (Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Services Agencies of BC, 2000). An Australian study (Shaw et al., 1977), in the course of an investigation to determine the number of non-English patients who received medications from a hospital pharmacy, discovered that of the 72 patients who required an interpreter for the interview, only 31 had been previously identified as needing one. Some studies focus on provider assessment of patient language pro-ficiency (Rader, 1988; Andrea & Renner, 1995; Drennan, 1996), while others look to the patient's assessment of need (Baker et al., 1996; Derose & Baker, 2000). Tocher, T. M. & Larson, E. B. A small survey of occupational therapists in the U. S. found that therapists reported taking more time with patients who were not proficient in English. A related concern is the inefficiency of removing staff from their regular duties (Rader, 1988; Drennan, 1996). (1983). Qualitative methods, such as interviews or focus groups, are used to address questions such as, "What types of problems do language barriers create?" Fifty-four Spanish-speaking mothers of new infants were randomly assigned for a first visit to a well baby clinic in either the experimental (remote simultaneous) or control (in person interpreter) group. 7 aba po-Virgen-Virgin.-alaala monlento-lmemento.-alalayan-assert-assist. Cost-benefit analysis would give some indication of the value of the proposed service to the general public. In a study of health behaviour of older Hispanic women, factor analysis was used to explore four dimensions of cultural assimilation - language preference, country of birth, contact with homeland, and attitudes about children's friends. Making our offices universally accessible: guidelines for physicians. Therefore, it is not clear whether the failure to provide inter-pretation services for other non-official language speakers would constitute a violation of the Charter, although many of the principles affirmed in the ruling also apply to other groups facing language barriers. Corso, S. E. (1997). Many programs report that immigrants are often extremely positive about the heath care system in Canada, and express high levels of satisfaction. The method used was an English and Spanish language questionnaire, sent to a random sample of patients receiving care from one physician group. In Canada there are four constituencies who may face barriers to health care due to having a nonofficial first language: First Nations and Inuit communities, newcomers to Canada (immigrants and refugees), Deaf persons, and, depending on location of residence, speakers of one of Canada's official languages. Manson (1988) examined the effect of language concordance on patient compliance and emergency room use for patients with asthma. It is generally accepted that the provider-patient relationship is built through the effective use of language. The methodology has not yet been adequately developed to accurately assess the "costs" of various health interventions. These positions may range from "case managers" to "health educators" to "cultural mediators" to "outreach workers". Links with this icon indicate that you are leaving the CDC website.. In the 143 exchanges, 80 words or phrases were mis-translated or not translated by at least one interpreter. (2000) included language (English, Spanish or other) as one of the non-clinical correlates that were analyzed. Therefore, a comprehensive strategy for addressing language barriers must take into account barriers to a variety of services, and match the form of service to the need. Marcos found three major types of distortions: a) distortions associated with the interpreter's language competence and translation skills, b) distortions associated with the interpreter's lack of psychiatric knowledge, and c) distortions associated with the interpreter's attitudes. Kirkman-Liff, B. Several other factors may interact with the service model and affect outcomes. Failure to do so will result in a 10 point penalty. The Daily. The remote-simultaneous interpretation service had a 13% lower rate of inaccurately reported mother utterances. Mayberry, R., Mili, F., Vaid, I., Samadi, A., Ofili, E., McNeal, M. S., Griffith, P. A., LaBrie, G. (1999). As this section suggests, there are many challenges in design and evaluation of research on issues related to language access to health care. The objectives of a particular program (whether to provide core "translation" functions, or alternative roles in cultural mediation), will affect both the expectations of the interpreter's role and the model of service provision. Researchers face a number of challenges, due to the paucity of data on which to base their studies. Most estimates of need focus only on the numbers of persons within a community who lack official language fluency, rather than the intensity or type of needs that necessitate language services. A related but separate issue is that of models of service provision. I'm not afraid, they cannot get me. Translation is not enough. To what extent "ethnic matching" is important as a marker of language congruence requires additional research (Flaskerud, 1990; Flaskerud & Lui, 1990). This section will focus on barriers to initial access, and participation in prevention programs, including prevention activities that are physician initiated. In the following sections we will review several recent studies and discuss the implications of this research for Canadian health services. As important as professional interpretation services are to equitable access to health care for those who do not speak an official language, provision of such services is not a sufficient response. (1987) found no dimension of acculturation associated strongly with health behaviour. (1998), who undertook a cross-sectional survey of parents of 203 children, with the objective of identifying barriers to health care. More than half of the non-English speakers spoke Spanish. It is likely that many centres will use a combination of models, where paid interpreters, volunteers, bilingual staff or telephone interpreters are all used, depending on the type of problem, skill needed, and availability of resources (Durbach, 1994; Carr, 1995). While the model has the potential to ensure coordination, monitoring and training on professional/ ethical standards for interpretation, many programs (particularly community-based "language banks") lack the resources to ensure training and standards. Gujarati sections of videotaped interviews were independently translated into English. What does “Empowered to Succeed” mean to you in relation to your career readiness? Lack of fluency in an official language is perceived as a time-limited problem that does not require systemic change. Baker D. W,. There are a number of reasons for this exclusion. They were also much more likely to report receiving counseling, in ASL, for psychiatric and substance abuse problems (49% compared to 5%). This may be due to differences between programs. Methods include cost-minimization analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, cost-utility analysis, and cost-benefit analysis. In many studies, language has been assumed to be a measure of acculturation rather than the primary variable of interest. Researchers found that language concordance with the physician did not significantly affect health outcomes, although these patients did report better health-related quality of life. There has been little formal assessment in Canada of the prevalence of language barriers in health care encounters. They asserted that this communication barrier (i. e. the lack of hospital-provided American Sign Language interpretation services, which were discontinued in 1990 because of budget cutbacks), caused them to receive a lesser quality of care. Determinants of no-show appointment behavior: the utility of multivariate analysis. Not only is there a continuum of language ability among members of any minority language population, but the complexity and specific nature of medical vocabulary also poses difficulties (Jackson, 1998). It may also be useful in certain well-defined situations, where a provider of the same background may be available in another city. In Canada, the absence of both a coordinated system of health interpretation, and of any requirements that non-official language speakers be provided with professional interpreters, have likely contributed to the paucity of research. A lack of trained interpreters contributes to a situation where there is continuing reliance on untrained interpretation. The authors emphasized the importance of doing research in Canada where health insurance cannot confound analyses. Although training programs have been developed in many provinces and territories, there has been relatively little coordination and information sharing between programs (Dubienski, 1998). [The interpreter in an intercultural clinical milieu]. Two questions were asked related to culture: ethnic self-identification and immigration status (Canadian born, immigrant of more than five years in Canada, immigrant in Canada for less than five years). Determining which model of trained, professional interpretation is most effective in a given situation is not as clear cut. Employment equity strategies facilitate entry of bilingual providers into the health professions. A., M. Sc. An important distinction should be made between access for assessment of needs, and access for treatment (Culyer, 1991; Bowen, 2000). Perkins, J. Research has also been influenced by the approaches to cultural competence adopted by both the health system and the larger society. Parker, R. M., Williams M. V., & Clark W. S. (1998). Greater effort is needed to develop roles that provide cultural interpretation and advocacy, and to develop specific health initiatives that respond to community needs (Stevens, 1993b; Vissandjee et al. Bridging the gap or damming the flow? These should include standards for interpreter training and for providers working with interpreters; the requirement for policy outlining situations where professional interpreters must be used; and development and coordination of accreditation processes for interpreters and institutions. Additionally, each of the communities for whom language access is an issue is viewed differently in terms of rights to language access. However, use of English language was associated most closely with increased use of screening programs. Severity of asthma was estimated as severe, moderate, or mild according to National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute guidelines. This suggested that English language fluency may have played a role. While hospital-based interpretation services are the most visible examples of this model, clinics, community health centres, or Public Health departments may also establish their own interpretation program (Sent et al., 1998). However, while ethnic groups have been found to have differing health beliefs and practices than the general population, specific research controlling for both language and culture does not support the hypothesis that these traditional beliefs and practices act as barriers to access to health care or utilization of preventive services (Jenkins et al., 1996). Drug complications in outpatients. One would expect that individuals who do not share a common language with their providers would be less satisfied with their care: most research on the topic confirms that this is indeed the case. As responsibility for such services remains external to the formal health system, limited impact on hospital policy or utilization of interpreters may be achieved. I'm wearing these new pants and I feel protected, I feel good, I don't get headaches anymore. For example, studies indicate that simply being accompanied by another person can improve health outcomes (Kaufert et al., 1999). Rights to language access also differ between these constituencies. Health advocates in Belgian health care. Longitudinal surveys describe or measure a population at several points in time, either by re-surveying them, or by monitoring individual experience over time. Develop a national strategy for health interpreter training, interpreter accreditation and standards of service provision. This method also has a number of practical problems, specifically related to the need to value health outcomes in monetary terms. While the focus of this report has been the effect of language barriers on patients, language barriers also pose problems for providers. Unlike Canada, the United States does not have universal health care insurance. Another issue relates to the actual measurement of language fluency. Specific Canadian research is needed in this area. While this literature will not be reviewed here, it should be noted that it is this body of research that first identified problems resulting from language barriers, and provided direction for future research. For example, cases have been reported of women agreeing to be sterilized, not realizing that this is a permanent procedure (Stevens, 1993b), or scheduled for abortions that they did not want (Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Services Agencies of BC, 2000). A study of prescription patterns of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) among African-American, Asian, Latina, Soviet, and white women in the United States found significant differences by self-identified ethnicity (Brown et al., 1999). There has been promotion of Canada as a cultural "mosaic", often without a critical analysis of sources of inequity. Whether an interpreter was included in the interview was not indicated in the data. Approximately half of this group spoke English, and half Spanish. Roberts, R. (1995). (1998). understanding of health related concepts, professional role, etc. Caution is therefore needed in generalizing study results to the Canadian context. Personal Communication. While the principal responsibility of an interpreter is to bridge the language barrier between individuals speaking different languages in order that they may communicate freely with each other (Downing, 1995), there is no consensus on the best way to achieve this. There is a paucity of research in Canada related to differences in treatment based on race/ ethnicity. A., M. Sc. One study by Frayne et al. It is recommended that a process of "back-translation" be undertaken to ensure an accurate translation for the target audiences. However, the court stated that while, from the perspective of a patient, there may be no real difference between sign language and oral language; from the perspective of the state, there may well be (Stradiatto, 1998). Even simple questions resulted in an average of over 25% of all questions being either mis-translated or not translated at all. It is also essential to build on Canadian research that has highlighted the role of socio-economic status in health status and patterns of utilization. Hornberger, J. For example, Flores et al. However, there were a number of limitations to this study. & Renner, P. (1995). A risk of selection bias then exists. In the absence of research focusing on questions of equitable treatment, it cannot be assumed that inequities do not exist. Various service models may also differ in the degree of training and experience of those interpreting. The U. S. Office of Minority Health states that, "Confusion exists as to whether the collection of these data should be mandatory, voluntary, or even permissible". Telephone surveys are particularly likely to exclude non-official language speakers (Barnett & Franks, 1999a). In many of the regions, Hispanics form a significant percentage of the population, and are gaining increased legal rights as well as service access. (2001). They can provide a link between many different providers, encouraging efficiency by ensuring that information is shared and clients are informed. This is because CBA does not require specification of all the possible consequences of various alternatives in detail. The purpose of this study (and a companion study focusing on pediatric patients) was to determine the risk factors for intubation. There have been a number of Canadian studies comparing barriers to access and care from the perspective of providers and patients. The objective of this report is to review this recent research. Surveys of patient-reported barriers to care often identify language as the greatest (or one of the greatest) barriers to care, even in countries with explicit financial barriers to care. They concluded that women who spoke a language other than English at home were less likely to receive important preventive services. Canadian studies indicate that in many areas immigrant populations tend to be younger than the population average, and have lower rates of disability. A review of models of professional service finds that a combination of one or more of the following is commonly used: Various authors categorize these alternatives differently (Riddick, 1998), and in practice, these "models" may overlap or be combined. Putsch (1985) drew on descriptive case studies of several models of interpreter-mediated communication in his description of alternative models of interpretation. Significant differences were found between English-speaking and monolingual Hispanic children in health status, access, satisfaction and barriers to care. Another study (Chan & Woodruff, 1999) examined whether patients who are not fluent in English receive less than optimal palliative care. Of these, 69% were English-speaking and 31% were Spanish-speaking. One variation of this approach is to have an inter-hospital system, where interpreters are shared between a number of institutions. This report focuses on those who face language barriers due to having a non-official first language. Musser-Granski, J. This involves comparing one group of individuals, which is known to have certain characteristics, with another group, which is known to have other characteristics. Stradiotto, R. A. (1984). It compared patients from a primary care program for the Deaf in Baltimore (that provided full-time ASL interpreters and subsidized health care costs for some patients), with a control group of friends of these patients drawn from the community. Plunkett, A. Many of these studies used smaller samples, and have not measured (or controlled for) language directly. One of the major challenges in undertaking an economic evaluation lies in determining what costs and consequences are to be included, and how these are to be measured. (2000), in an analysis of three pediatric cases, explored: the ways in which language barriers resulted in delayed diagnosis, and then in complications; the inappropriate apprehension of children based on an inaccurate diagnosis of child abuse; and failure to communicate to parents the severity of a critically-ill newborn's condition. Access to mental health and counseling services is a particular area of concern regarding interpreter use. All individuals requiring or utilizing interpreters do not have the same level of English or French fluency. This is not only due to the obvious difficulties in obtaining accurate information, but also because good communication can be a source of motivation, reassurance and support, as well as an opportunity to clarify expectations (Kaplan et al., 1989). Neither of these responses has traditionally been pursued in Canada, although since the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, there have been significant initiatives aimed at recruiting and training Aboriginal health professionals. It was found in this case that over 50% of interpretation was provided by nurses and doctors in the clinic, with additional services provided by other clinic staff. Interpretation of data can be proble-matic, as different meanings of the use of language, unless addressed, may threaten reliability and validity (Marshall et al., 1998). Health behavior of elderly Hispanic women: does cultural assimilation make a difference? The needs of urban Aboriginal people were not seen as a priority target population for interpreter services provided by the First Nations and Inuit Branch, although hospital-based programs such as those in Winnipeg, Brandon, Thompson and Regina serve the needs of all Aboriginal peoples who require language access services. There has been a gradual evolution from defining race as a biological category, to understanding its impor-tance as a social construct (Krieger & Fee, 1994a; Goodman, 2000), and increasing interest in researching the health effects of discrimination (Krieger, 1999, 2000). However, access has generally been interpreted to mean the absence of explicit financial barriers to care. Krieger, N. (2000). Hornberger et al. More compelling are the consistent reports from health care users themselves, based on community consultations and direct assessment (interviews, focus groups or surveys). Patient satisfaction was also assessed as an indicator of clinical outcome. Multicultural health care requires adjustments by doctors and patients. Specific interest was expressed in evaluating evidence of the impact of language barriers on health and utilization of health services. This website uses cookies to improve your experience. Include in the review of health research proposals an assessment of whether those who are not fluent in an official language are eligible to participate, and promote inclusion of language minorities in both clinical and health services research. Training the community interpreter: the Nunavut Arctic College Experience. Much of the unpublished or non-peer-reviewed literature also provides case examples that describe the historical development and organizational structure of specific interpretation programs (Stevens, 1993b). This analysis utilized data on the experience of patients with selected admission criteria, in selected hospitals in Massachusetts, before and after the introduction of interpretation services. It is estimated that 29% of those who are foreign born and claim some university education actually test as functionally illiterate in an official language, compared to 6% of the Canadian born population with the same level of education (Calamai, 1987). The desire for continuity may be the reason that family and friends continue to receive high satisfaction ratings from most in the study. (1994). Chan, A. identify models of health delivery in an environment where there is insufficient data to develop valid experimental studies or analyze secondary data; present data in a form that is easily understandable to lay persons, the public and the media; deal with issues of meaning and political context of social interaction; assist in validating measures and defining the limits of research utilizing quantitative designs; form the basis of an in-depth assessment of long-term costs and benefits of providing language access via interpreter services; assist in sampling approaches with both qualitative and quantitative research. One approach is to survey users, however most health service evaluations do not include a component on satisfaction with language access services. However, there has also been almost no Canadian research in this area, so it cannot be assumed that inequities based on ethnicity do not exist. To ensure appropriate utilization of interpreters within institutions, policy requiring the use of interpreters is needed, along with provision for monitoring and evaluation.
