Shipowners’ Club publishes multilingual questions for medical assessments

Shipowners’ P&I Club has published a list of multilingual questions to assess health and injuries to non-English speaking or poor-English-speaking crew members.

The Club said that it hoped the guide would assist those working on board with the assessment and treatment of seafarers, supporting them in obtaining medical help when required. “The multilingual guide is a practical tool which enables crew to

quickly and easily translate medical questions from English into Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Burmese, Chinese, Filipino, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai. Medical areas covered include cardiac events, injuries to different parts of the body, and pain relating to specific conditions”, the club said.
