Selected Multilingual Consumer Health Resources
The Tools for Health project offers a collection of materials about consumer rights and how to obtain language services in the 31 most-commonly spoken languages in Washington. The toolkit includes an “ISpeak” card for consumers to bring with them when seeking care which identifies the language they speak, and a “Know Your Rights” flyer to inform both consumers and providers regarding the use of interpreter services in healthcare settings.
