Establishing a rapport with the patient is crucial to the success of the medical appointment. When a language or cultural barrier exists, the health and comfort of the patient can be compromised. This workshop is designed to give the healthcare provider the information about a patient's condition. Participants will learn basic phrases to greet a patient, ask pertinent questions, and complete a patient history. Cultural information will also be presented to aid effective communication with the Hispanic population.
