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.
