Many emergency physicians frequently see patients who are more comfortable communicating in a language other than English. Some of these patients will have concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccination.
ACEP has developed smart phrases addressing these concerns in several languages, written by physicians who are native to that language.
Smart phrases are blocks of text that you can copy and paste into your hospital's electronic health records (EHR) system to automatically create discharge papers for common ED presentations.
Note: Several additional languages are in production, but ACEP could use your help in developing a robust library. If you or a physician you know is native to a non-English speaking country and would like to provide a short paragraph in that language, please email ACEP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
