SLIAO VRI – Canadian Pharmacies
During times like COVID-19, having patients understand their medications is crucial to their health and safety. For a Deaf, Hard of Hearing or DeafBlind patient, not having this information in their primary language is a tremendous concern.
Canadian pharmacies must be holding themselves accountable to providing accessible communication options to sign language users.
With the help of on-demand SLIAO VRI, the pharmacist and Deaf patient can connect virtually to a professional sign language interpreter, while still maintaining the security and confidentiality found during in-person discussions. Clear communication in a Deaf person’s first language regarding their health and medications is essential to improving and maintaining a patient’s health. Let’s flatten the curve together.
