    • Overview

      Half of computer-generated Spanish prescription labels are either inaccurate or incomplete, causing patient errors. Learn the basic Spanish that you will need in order to proof directions for use and to provide them verbally with confidence. You will also learn to translate common directions for use from English. This activity serves not only to decrease patient errors, but to also develop a better rapport with Spanish speaking patients.
