Course Description: Latinos are the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States. By 2050, it is projected that Latinos will comprise 30% of the U.S. population. Despite the Latino population explosion, little is known about the quality of veterinary care provided to pets of Spanish-speaking owners who have limited English proficiency (LEP). We will discuss results from three national studies that describe the veterinary communication experience between LEP Latino pet owners and the small animal veterinary team. There will also be some insight into ways to improve communication in your hospital with Spanish-speaking pet owners who have limited English proficiency. No Spanish language background needed!
