Medical Interpreting: Domains and Competencies   Leave a comment

Participants will discuss ethical dilemmas and professional solutions, as well as dynamically equivalent interpreting, in the medical field. Participants will briefly consider the impact of demonstrating qualities such as diplomacy, customer service, compassion and more. They will then examine domains and competencies of an ASL/English Medical Interpreter as developed by the College of St. Catherine CATIE Center and NCIEC (The National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers). Specifically, we will examine boundaries, preparation, ethical and professional decision-making and communication advocacy choices and the processes behind them. The workshop will conclude with case study scenario analysis with the goal of providing the most professional and dynamically equivalent interpreting services in medical settings.
