Pages developed with nurses and interpreters to aid caregivers in communicating basic information to their patients. Each PDF document is 3 pages, including target language and English.

These pages were developed with nurses and interpreters to aid caregivers in communicating basic information to their patients. Use of the pages requires no prior knowledge of the patient's language, but requires that a patient be able to read and point to a written response.

These pages are not meant to be a substitute for using a qualified interpreter. Rather, they are a basic communication aid for nurses providing comfort and care to patients. For more complex communication needs, always use an interpreter.
