Presenter: Ira SenGupta
Offers IMIA CEUs 0.15 CEUs


Interpreting for Advance Care Planning (ACP) with a patient, their family and providers, calls for an unusual set of skills and knowledge that is a critical and useful addition to every interpreter’s professional toolbox.
Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a necessary yet difficult task for physicians and patients in the event of chronic or terminal illness, especially for older adults nearing the end of life. ACP can help “alleviate unnecessary suffering, improve quality of life,” and provide a better idea to patients and caregivers of the challenges to come. The bewildering emotional, cultural and communication barriers that limited or non-English proficient patients and families face in end of life care planning, can be overcome with a well- prepared medical interpreter on the care team. Grounded in the strength of cultural humility, applicable case studies and terminology, attendees will leave this session well prepared to meet the interpreting needs of health systems in ACP for their chronically and terminally ill patients. The session is well paced, interactive and intent on skill building.
Learning Objectives:
1. The three main barriers to Advance Care Planning (ACP) will be identified and developed
2. The current process of ACP decision making will be discussed. with a terminology reference sheet 
3. Attendees will become familiar with the REFLECTION tool to advance interpreting skills in ACP
