SPECIAL ISSUE ON 'LANGUAGE BARRIERS IN ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE SERVICES'

The Canadian Modern Language Review (CMLR) invites manuscripts to be
considered for a special issue on 'Language barriers in access to
healthcare services', to appear in September 2011. Language barriers can
potentially compromise healthcare delivery when professionals cannot speak
the patient's language or speak it poorly. Full and equitable healthcare is
especially at risk in those areas where correct language usage--and the
cultural values and norms such usage may reflect--plays a critical role in
health communication. Such areas include, among others, obtaining informed
consent; presenting bad news following diagnosis; discussing pain, sexual
practices, or mental health; talking about death or suicide; discussing
issues specific to youth and adolescents. It is now widely recognized that
people from Canada's official language, First Nation, M├ętis and Inuit
communities, as well as immigrants speaking languages other than English or
French may, depending on where they live, risk experiencing language
barriers to full and equitable healthcare. Similar problems exist
worldwide. For this special issue, we invite submissions examining any
language-related aspect of linguistic barriers to access to health care
services. Relevant topics include, among others, the nature of linguistic
differences as they relate to healthcare delivery, healthcare education,
and second language training for health professionals. We especially
welcome papers presenting results that might be applicable in the Canadian
learning and teaching context. Our aim is to present the latest theoretical
and pedagogical developments. We welcome articles in English or French
presenting original research. Submitted articles will be subject to the
normal peer review process of the CMLR.

Final deadline for submissions: October 31st, 2010.

For submission information, visit http://www.utpjournals.com/cmlr or contact
us at cmlrutpress.utoronto.ca. Receipt of all manuscripts will be
acknowledged within a week of their arrival.
