To help resolve this problem, Dr. Régis Vaillancourt, CHEO's Director of Pharmacy, led a FIP-funded initiative to develop a series of pictograms. Pharmacies and hospitals can now download the free software and provide patients with simple, cartoon-like, images which explain how a medication should be taken, when it should be taken, and under what circumstances.

"This is all about health literacy -- the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services they need to make appropriate health decisions," said Vaillancourt.

The release of the resource in Arabic coincides with the launch of an improved version of the software, which allows pharmacists to build, quickly and easily, storyboards (of instructions), information sheets and medication calendars for their patients.
"Pharmacists have a duty to ensure the proper use of medicines. In view of the language barriers faced by migrants, these pictograms have the potential to play an important role in optimising treatment compliance and improving medication safety in this group," Dr Vaillancourt said.
