In-Person Workshop by Erin Neff-Minyard

Approved by IMIA/NBCMI and CCHI for 5 CEU hours,

Cost: $30 for OSTI members, $40 for non-members
Registration is non-refundable for attendee cancellations.

This interactive 5-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 a kidney transplant clinic. Whether the patient is on the recipient or the donor side of the experience, this lengthy process involves specialized terminology and the need for a clear understanding of the evaluation steps in order to create accurate meaning in interpretation. We'll use art and story-telling to work through our objectives together.

Course Objectives:

·        Define the concepts and terms related to the Kidney Transplant program. 
·        Explain the details of the pre- and post- transplant process for recipients. 
·        Explain the details of the pre- and post- donation process for living donors. 
·        Explain the importance of being financially prepared for a transplant. 
·        Apply the NCIHC’s interpreter code of ethics and standards of practice.

Start time: Please arrive by 7:30am to park, get signed in, and settled. Class starts at 8:00am and ends at 1:00pm.

Registration is open to 25 people maximum.
