Dynamic Partners with Washington State Pharmacy Association (WSPA)

Emanuel Longo | May 19, 2010

In today’s society, cultural differences and language barriers can make it difficult to communicate. In the healthcare industry, in particular, communication errors can be both costly and potentially deadly.

According to a new study, “many Spanish-speaking people in the United States receive prescription instructions from the pharmacy so poorly translated that the medications are potentially hazardous to their health.” It has been shown that pharmacies relying on computer programs to translate medications and instructions are among the highest at risk for mistranslation.

Dynamic Language understands the importance of accurately translating prescription instructions and clearly communicating with patients. In an effort to help reduce communication errors, we have partnered with the Washington State Pharmacy Association (WSPA), to provide language support services to pharmacies across our state.
