Medical terminology in ASL

Medical terminology in ASLPatients with disabilities are receiving more and more attention. In Europe, for instance, pharmaceutical companies must provide patient information leaflets in a way that is accessible to blind patients.

And now on of our readers pointed me to www.DeafMD.org. The site provides medical education and terminology in American Sign Language.

While there are sites and books for communicating in a healthcare environment, to my knowledge, this is the only tool for explaining medical terms to deaf people. Interestingly, video logs are called Vlogs in the deaf world.
