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.

**DEADLINE EXTENDED to December 20, 2010 for CMLR Special Issue
2011 'Language Barriers in Access to Healthcare Services'**
