Multicultural health videos
Communication professors Ellen Balka and Dave Murphy helped the BC Ministry of Health develop video vignettes and a documentary to improve the use of the BC NurseLine by the province’s substantial Farsi-speaking community.

The programs, broadcast on multicultural channels, proved so successful that the team is now working on similar videos aimed at the Chinese-speaking community.

The BC NurseLine is a 24-hour, toll-free access to registered nurses specially trained to provide confidential health information and advice on the telephone.
