An Intoxicating Error: Mistranslation, Medical Malpractice, and Prejudice

06/09/15 - Everyone makes prejudicial judgments . . . but exposure to groups and individuals can mitigate them.    

On the next Topical Currents we visit with the president of the Florida Center for Cultural Competence, Gail Price-Wise.  She’s an expert in communications improvement among people of different racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds . . . including miscommunication and mistrust in the provider-patient relationship. We’ll discuss her book, An Intoxicating Error: Mistranslation, Medical Malpractice, and Prejudice. That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1pm.
