Posters Patients and Providers CA

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) has developed three educational posters designed for use in primary care clinics, emergency rooms, and other facilities that serve acute illnesses. The posters urge providers to ask patients about travel and proximity to birds; ask patients to think about and discuss their exposure history with providers; and suggest that patients don a face mask if they are coughing, sneezing, or have a rash. Patient posters are available in multiple languages and can be accessed on the LACDPH website. This is a thoughtful and clear approach that represents useful outreach by public health to healthcare professionals and primary care clinics. Since the posters include the Los Angeles County logo, they can be re-branded locally for public health departments using these materials.
