Sign language in health care

As doctors-to-be, it is important to have a view about what barriers patients encounter in the health care system. A deaf-mute patient who comes to the doctor's office may encounter many difficulties, doctors usually do not know sign language, there is not a translator readily available,… This is why we are organizing this "course in sign language in health care". Deaf and mute patients will teach us what barriers they encounter in everyday life. Then we will get to work ourselves and learn the basics of sign language.
Further practical information will be communicated later.
