I’m so glad you brought this up I don’t have a solution but we struggle with the same issues with our population here in Maine mostly from The Congo.Generally overtime we are able to build a relationship and start seeing better compliance. We just try to start slow and keep them coming back to clinic. It’s hard to find teaching materials in Portuguese and Lingala but are working on a new simple HU teaching sheet to have translated in several languages. We do have a few interpreters that consistently work with us. I’m interested in hearing from others and would also love to talk more and share materials and ideas.

I am interested in how other facilities are handling sickle cell patients and non-compliance. Specifically, concerning refugee patients from the Congo. How are your facilities overcoming language and cultural barriers to promote compliance? Are you seeing the same trends in non-compliance at your institution? I am looking for better ways to help serve this population.
