Description:
In 2009, the Discipline of General Practice at NUI Galway, in collaboration with the Centre for Participatory Strategies, Galway and the HSE National Social Inclusion Unit, began a participatory research project to involve migrants and other key stakeholders in the development of a Guideline for communication in cross-cultural general practice consultations. Th is project was funded by the Health Research Board and the HSE National Social Inclusion Unit through a Health Research Board (HRB) Partnership Award Th e development of the Guideline is a direct and practical response to the reality that service users with limited English and their GPs face signifi cant challenges on a daily basis in their consultations together because they do not have a shared language or cultural background. Th is frequently results in misunderstandings and communication breakdowns, which are distressing and unsatisfactory for all involved. Th e National Intercultural Health Strategy 2007-2012 recognises these challenges and recommends research to clarify what supports and models of service provision are required in the Irish context.
