Deaf Hospital highlights communication barriers
Rochester, NY is one of America's most deaf friendly cities with huge numbers of accessible venues and events, and Rochester Institute of Technology has a high intake of international Deaf students.
So it's no surprise to read about their pioneering annual event, 'Deaf Hospital', where all the medical staff are deaf and the patients are hearing.
The aim of this workshop is to show medical students the challenges they face, and the potential solutions, when trying to communicate with Deaf patients.
We think it's a great idea and someone should pioneer it over here. Read more about it on this link:
