Apothekersorganisatie KNMP has 24 videos available online which medicijnuitleg is given in sign language. The movies are part of the campaign, Can you explain?
The campaign is meant to good medication use among illiterate and deaf patients to promote.
The KNMP is supported by the ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport (VWS). Minister Edith Schippers sent last week a letter to the Second Chamber where they the wide use of gebarentaalfilmpjes advocated.
“The translated movies make hopefully clear how drugs should be used,” says Selena den Besten, who is himself deaf, and the movies helped translate into sign language. “This information is for me of vital importance.”
