Language Barriers Impact Patient Satisfaction with Cancer Care

In a randomized trial, researchers investigated how patient-provider language agreement impacts satisfaction with cancer care in Spanish-speaking patients. “Delivering linguistically competent care is critical to serving patients who have limited English proficiency (LEP) and represents a key national strategy to help reduce health disparities,” wrote the study authors. “Current acceptable standards of communication with patients who have LEP include providers communicating through professional interpretive services or bilingual providers speaking the patients’ preferred language directly.” RELATED: Two Experts Discuss Health Misinformation in the Hispanic Community.

Oregon law seeks to ensure language access in health care, opponents worry about side effects

Among the slate of legislation passed by the Oregon House of Representatives in 2021, one bill has stood out for those in the language industry. House bill (HB) 2359 requires health care providers in Oregon to work with interpreters from a health care interpreter registry maintained by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). Advocates for the law say it will help ensure language access for residents of the northwestern US state who have limited English proficiency (LEP) — some 300,000 people according to the 2018 American Community Survey — while opponents say it will add another layer of bureaucracy to an already unwieldy system, and actually prevent some patients from getting the quality language access they need.
