Palliative Care for Interpreters (Medford)

March 31, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


This interactive seven-hour workshop is designed for experienced health care interpreters to expand their knowledge, improve interpreting skills, and increase their comfort level related to interpreting in palliative care settings. Conversations involving palliative care, especially those at end of life, can be among the most difficult for interpreters to convey, not only linguistically and culturally, but personally. Palliative care is a distinct and rapidly expanding area of medicine with which all interpreters should be familiar and palliative care conversations present unique challenges for interpreters that require specific knowledge and skills to overcome. This workshop is open to experienced interpreters of all languages.

Instructors: Jeanette Poston, Linda Cail & Jennifer Levi.

Approved for 7 hours of CEUs by CCHI and the ATA and 0.7 CEUs by IMIA.

There is no fee for attendance at this workshop.
