Created by Doug Bowen-Bailey

in collaboration with

Digiterp Communications, LLC. and

Take These Meds is a video resource that features three visits with a pharmacist and allows you to interpret in both a consecutive and simultaneous format, as well as observe the original interpretation.  The three visits focus on asthma, high blood pressure and diabetes, and osteoporosis.

This video resource is accompanied with a study packet  of the same name. It guides users in working with the three scenarios on the DVD which was filmed with Deaf customers asking questions of a pharmacist. The packet includes reflections from all of the interpreters so you have a sense of what influenced their decision-making process.
