The learning outcomes of Canopy Learn are to: build linguistic capacity, enabling the student to better build rapport with Spanish-speaking patients to provide effective and compassionate care; to acquire specialized medical vocabulary across a wide spectrum of commonly-encountered medical scenarios; and, to gain a deepened awareness for the cultural diversity found within the Spanish-speaking world in addition to an appreciation for the necessity of heightened cultural sensitivity necessary to provide empathetic and effective patient care. Learn more here.

Another technology that you can access is Canopy Speak!

Canopy Speak features the largest library of multilingual medical phrases ever created and a one-touch button to connect to a facility’s phone interpreter line. With Canopy Speak, a provider can play phrases like “Take long, slow, deep breaths”, “You will feel a pinch and burn as we insert the numbing medication”, “On a scale of 1-10, show me on your hands your level of pain” “Did your pain medication help?” out loud to the patient in their language. Currently, this routine, basic but necessary communication is frequently omitted for limited English proficiency (LEP) patients.  Learn more and download for free here.

Canopy Innovations hopes that the greater AMSA community benefits from this tool.
