Toma las riendas (Take the reins): Campaign Helps Spanish Speakers Compare Treatment Options

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (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 decision-making between patients and their health care teams.
