The National Library of Medicine’s Multi-Cultural Resources for Health Information page offers reliable links to help health professionals learn how to serve culturally diverse populations. In addition to topics such as cultural competency, health literacy, limited English proficiency, data related to minority health and health disparities, and health resources in multiple languages, new sections and resources were recently added to the page, including:
- Addiction and Substance Use Disorder Resources (under Health Resources in Multiple Languages) – Multilingual consumer health information related to addiction and substance use disorders.
- American Sign Language (ASL) Resources (under Health Resources in Multiple Languages) – Find videos in American Sign Language (ASL) providing reliable health information.
- Searches in OMHRC Catalog and PubMed – Find search results on topics like health literacy and cultural competency from HHS Office of Minority Health Resource Center (OMHRC) Catalog (a database of publications related to minority health) and PubMed.
