VUCA created videos for deaf patients to demonstrate “How To Use” certain medications ( injected, inhaled, etc).
Medication Administration Training in American Sign Language
They have created a library of videos for the deaf and hearing impaired in American Sign Language. Specifically, these videos are focused on educating patients and families on how to administer their medications (like inhalers, insulin injections, etc) in American Sign Language ( http://rxtips.medsoncue.com/ ). Think about how a pharmacist would explain to a deaf mom on the appropriate use of an inhaler with a spacer and mask for their child—not easy!
VUCA partnered with a college professor who teaches advanced ASL and hired a deaf actor to deliver the information.
