New AHRQ Campaign Encourages Hispanics to Work with Their Doctors to Make the Best Treatment Decisions
AHRQ is partnering with Hispanic-serving organizations to promote the Agency’s Spanish-language resources and to encourage consumers to become more active partners in their health care. AHRQ’s easy-to-read resources help consumers understand the benefits and risks of treatment options and encourage shared decisionmaking between patients and their health care teams. To assist in this effort, AHRQ launched the “Toma las riendas” (“Take the reins”) campaign, a nationwide effort to encourage Hispanics to take control of their health and explore treatment options. The campaign addresses the need for high-quality health information in Spanish. It promotes a wide variety of resources produced by AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program. These tools include consumer-friendly publications that summarize treatment options for common health conditions and help Hispanics work with their health care teams to select their best treatment option. The tools offer factual, unbiased information to help answer questions such as: What are the benefits and risks of different medical treatment? How strong is the science behind each option? Which treatment is most likely to work best for me? To encourage use of the materials and engage Hispanics in the discussion, AHRQ has also launched a Facebook Page.
