Presenter:Romina Marazzato Sparano
Description:The new definition of Health Literacy in the U.S. will have long-term impacts on language access and the interpreting profession. Updated in August 2020 as part of the U.S. Government’s Healthy People 2030 Initiative, the new definition includes two components: Personal and Organizational Health Literacy. The first component focuses on patients’ ability to effectively use health information and make “well-informed” decisions while the second brings forward organizations’ responsibility for enabling personal health literacy. We will explore the far-reaching implications of these changes on the interpreting profession in the context of the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS).

Presenter:Laurence Ibrahim Aibo
Description:Sight translation is one of the modes often used in community settings. This mode requires the oralization of a written text to make sure that the receiver(s) of the sight translation can engage with its content. While the NCIHC provides guidelines about the type of materials that are adequate for sight translation in healthcare settings, there are few guidelines in other community settings. Interpreters attending the webinar will be encouraged to think about sight translation from the point of view of the receiving audience, which will help them to think critically about the complexities of the task and make informed decisions about effective delivery strategies.

Description:We often hear that practice makes perfect. But is that true? Does it really?
How can deliberate practice help you reach the next step in your career?
During this webinar, the importance of regular purpose-driven practice for interpreters is explored. Practicing with a purpose is absolutely critical for reaching desired results and career goals. Regardless of the situation: whether you are studying alone or with a study buddy, preparing for an interpreter certification exam or simply working to improve your interpreting skills, different strategies exist for it to be time well spent!
Instead of practicing to become perfect, practice effectively with a specific purpose in order to maximize the benefits.

Description:How comfortable are you interpreting remotely while navigating tech issues? This webinar will offer strategies, tips, and solutions to address one of the thorniest aspects of the remote interpreting experience: communication through technology. Clients and consumers use VRI and OPI equipment with varying levels of understanding and experience, which means the interpreter is now expected to be the language expert in the room AND understand how the technology works.

We will analyze real-world scenarios experienced by interpreters in healthcare. We’ll address common tech problems and the frustrations everyone in the encounter experiences as a result. This knowledge will help you manage the situation like a pro.

Presenter:Cynthia Mauleon
Description:Like most other professions, it is the things you are NOT taught in a classroom that make you a successful interpreter. But what are the things a seasoned, successful interpreter wish someone had taught them when they first started their career?
You’ve taken your 40-hour community interpreter training. Perhaps you’re recently certified. Maybe you have several years (or more) of community interpreting under your belt. You have worked diligently on your interpreting skills. But what about everything else? What are the practical things a mentor would teach you?
In this approachable webinar, you will be introduced to what Cynthia Mauleon and what she sees as the practical side of interpreting: how to create a support system, how to build your reference collection, what to wear (or not wear) to an interpreting assignment, how to take care of yourself on the job.

Presenter:Ludmila Golovine- Founder, President & CEO of MasterWord (Moderator)
Description:For our 9th annual Wellness Connection event, we want to make language professionals the center of the conversation and provide answers to the questions you may have on vicarious trauma.
Vicarious trauma can affect the performance and wellbeing of language professionals who experience or internalize someone else’s trauma as they facilitate communication for sensitive and/or traumatic experiences. Language professionals are rarely trained to handle the emotions that can arise from their work, leading to anxiety, high levels of stress, depression, or other mental health issues.
Don’t let vicarious trauma change your perceptions of the world. Our panel of experts and fellow language professionals will answer your questions and provide insight to help prevent and mitigate the effects of vicarious trauma.

Description:The emergency department serves as the entry point for all patients; those who have traumatic injuries are routed to the trauma unit and treated there. The trauma unit team of trauma surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, cardiac surgeons, and trauma nurses work together to treat the most extreme injuries.
Being able to give patients a second chance at life after a serious injury is very rewarding but can also mean a schedule that is highly unpredictable, demanding and stressful. Interpreting during emergency services encounters is very vital and it can take in the trauma bay of an emergency room, by phone with paramedics in the field or in an ambulance, or by phone with 9-1-1 dispatchers or poison control center operators. This presentation will focus on the basic procedures followed by emergency services staff and to address the difficult and challenging nature of these interpreting encounters.

Description:In the language industry, it’s all about words. Dealing with words may not seem like a high-risk profession, and for the majority of language professionals, it may not be. However, some face tough challenges that can affect them to their core, leading to high stress, burnout, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, or a drop in performance. Imagine interpreting for or translating content related to survivors of human trafficking, children’s protective services, or gruesome legal proceedings. It’s hard to be left unaffected by such work. Yet, vicarious trauma is a taboo topic that few providers are willing to tackle head on, whether it affects their interpreters, translators, or project managers.

Please join this session to listen to our impressive panel to openly talk about vicarious trauma in the language industry and what you can do to help teams better cope with high-stress situations.

We will discuss the medical and lay terminology about pain in English and Spanish.

Presenter:Samantha Hoskinson
Description:Postpartum Depression is a complex mental health condition that is particularly putting at risk immigrant mothers who do not speak the language of the new country. Insight into cultural beliefs about mental ill health is of utmost importance in these situations, as cultural expectations around motherhood and family roles may impact how postpartum depression is perceived and addressed within a community. Interpreters, being part of that community, should be sensitive to the emotional state of the person they are interpreting for, and be prepared to convey potentially difficult or sensitive information while maintaining professionalism. Please note that the content provided in this workshop is for informational purposes only and does not replace professional advice or counseling.

Description:Interpreters may feel increased emotional stress due to difficulties in handling traumatic content from individuals with PTSD. Learning about PTSD, an understanding of it and how it affects people, allows for greater empathy and compassion towards individuals who have experienced trauma. Throughout this workshop, interpreters will better understand the crucial role they play in providing access to health care for those with PTSD. Together we will discuss different skills we can use to ensure our needs as interpreters, as well as those of the individuals, are being met with sensitivity and understanding. Interpreters will walk away from this workshop feeling empowered in such an emotionally difficult subject.

Description:The NCIHC Standards of Practice work group published “Interpreter Advocacy in Healthcare Encounters: A Closer Look.” This webinar presents highlights from the paper. We explore the sociological definition of role to understand the place of advocacy within the healthcare interpreter’s scope of practice. We examine what makes intervention advocacy as opposed to something else. We discuss the questions to ask oneself in order to determine whether interpreter advocacy is required and may be the most appropriate and necessary intervention, as well as interventions that will avoid the need for advocacy. We wrap up by discussing a scenario with variations and walk through the decision-making process questions to see whether other interventions may avoid the need for advocacy, or if advocacy is required.

Description:Creating a reliable glossary is a skill interpreters need to develop. A few of the challenges interpreters face when creating glossaries include organizing the terminology, researching terms to find the best equivalents, and storing the information in a place that is easily accessible on the job. Furthermore, many healthcare organizations encourage interpreters to create their own glossaries, but don’t have a system to make collaborative glossaries among healthcare interpreters on the team.

This workshop is designed as an overview of advanced glossary building skill development and team building. Throughout the presentations and activities, healthcare interpreters will see all the steps involved in creating a quality glossary. They will also see a variety of electronic tools they can use to organize their terminology as individuals and as a team.

Description:This 10-hour Certificate of Attendance online course will help interpreters with advanced skills expand their knowledge in the world of diabetes care. An initial narrated PowerPoint will introduce the anatomy and physiology of the human endocrine system; the nature of type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes, symptoms, tests and treatments for the disease, as well as an introduction to the various health professionals who provide care to diabetic patients. Vocabulary exercises will help students become comfortable with the language of diabetes both in English and in their non-English target language. Course materials will include bilingual glossaries in a variety of commonly interpreted languages in the U.S. (Arabic, Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese). Recorded bilingual dialogues will give learners the opportunity to practice interpreting, with immediate access to their own recorded interpretation and a translated script so as to compare the two for accuracy. A final section will address specific challenges to interpreting in diabetes, such as the difficulty of finding linguistic equivalents for the many foods discussed by dietitians or described by patients. Interactive exercises and assessments will follow each section, and successful completion of the quizzes will be required for advancement to the next section.

The course is approved by the American Translators Association (ATA) for 10 Continuing Education Points, by the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA) for 0.8 Continuing Education Units, by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI) for 10 Continuing Education Hours and by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) for 8 Continuing Education Points. This course includes at least 2 performance-based CE hours.

Description:This 20-hour e-learning course will help expand your consecutive interpreting skills and work opportunities by enhancing your memory aids using the FAST Method, a note-taking technique created by CCCI at CCCS, Inc.™ Prior to starting the course it is recommended that you purchase a notebook and pen.
This interactive 9-lesson course provides interpreters with clear steps on how to develop a personal note-taking style in order to maximize one’s memory capacity by practicing over 150 exercises. During this course, you will be guided through the note-taking process while applying their developed skills. It is recommended that you work on one lesson at a time. Most of the modules contain handouts, flashcards, and/or quizzes.
Towards the end of the course, you will be provided with the opportunity to take notes on paragraphs of information. This mimics the interpreting encounter and enables you to master their note-taking abilities. All of the activities have been designed so that the new skills learned can be completely developed. One of the key features associated with this course is the numerous audio/visual presentations that help bring life to the main concepts of this course. Learning this advanced skill will facilitate the flow and accuracy of the session, as note-taking can be highly personalized.

Description:Interpreters who adopt an interpreter practitioner model versus the “black box interpreter” can add value and make a bigger impact in the healthcare encounter. The presenter will review current ethical guidelines, in addition to other foundational principles, which support innovative and advanced practice strategies. The presenter will share specific strategies for interpreters to consider applying in their practice, and for educators and managers to encourage and support. The presenter will argue that these strategies have the indirect benefit of increasing our perceived value in the communication triad. The strategies include numerous educating scripts, creative visual aids, and techniques to better negotiate high register--all of which can enhance communication and trust. Finally, the presenter will argue that interpreters who work in the healthcare setting make more effective decisions and further raise the status of healthcare interpreters when they possess emotional intelligence and soft skills.

This document lays out guidelines as to what constitutes adequate preparation for a healthcare interpreter. These Standards reflect the reality of the time, when most interpreting and training was being done in person. Today, however, both are being done more frequently through online platforms such as Zoom. How do the National Standards hold up? Are there aspects of the Standards that do not apply or additional standards that ought to be added? This workshop will seek input from participants to identify how the Standards for Training Program need to be adapted to today’s online reality.

These barriers are heightened when a person is both LGBTQIA and also limited English proficient (LEP).” This course will address best practices in interpreting in the LGBTQIA community. It will examine the ethics associated with interpreting for a non-binary community such as regulatory protections, non-discrimination laws, standards of care, and cultural biases. The class is designed to help the professional interpreter develop the skills necessary to interpret in the LGBTQIA population such providing a glossary of terms commonly used in the medical setting, both in English and in other languages. Lastly, the interpreter will develop skills in interpreting sensitive health issues such as sexual history, and gender-affirming surgery appointments.

interpreting skills. The class looks at types of cancers, their progression, how culture may come
into play, and how interpreters can take steps to best care for themselves throughout the
process.

Description:This presentation is designed to debunk the myths about simultaneous interpreting in healthcare. Building on empirical research, this session seeks to address simultaneous interpreting as an effective mode of interpreting in situations beyond emergency. Healthcare interpreting training programs are not created equal. There is currently no consensus on training content, or the duration of the different training modules. While some programs include all interpreting modes (consecutive, simultaneous, and sight translation) many programs only emphasize the consecutive mode given the dialogic nature of most medical encounters. Nevertheless, simultaneous interpreting is required in many settings, and this skill should not be overlooked in trainings, or interpreters’ everyday practice.

Attendees participate in a discussion led by a staff moderator/discussant/presenter, and benefit from learning relevant information and reflecting on various possible approaches that may be effective for them to take if they find themselves in similar situations. Alternatively, a guest presenter will present a topic with links to interpreter Ethics and Standards of Practice. A recording of the webinar may be posted for BIDMC interpreters who could not attend in person.

A patient is answering the MRI checklist questions. The interpreter remembers the patient has had an implant; the patient does not mention it. The interpreter is aware some implants can cause problems during MRIs. Should the interpreter say anything? To whom?
Join us to consider a case that touches on the ethical principle of beneficence and the shared goal of good patient care, respect for patients, patient autonomy, and confidentiality.

Description:Indigenous Interpreters face many challenges as they navigate the interpreting profession. Two prominent ones are the lack of direct equivalencies in their native languages of westernized terms and concepts as well as the need to preform relay interpreting with common language interpreters with little or no training in relay interpreting. In this webinar we will share the experiences and successes of practicing Indigenous interpreters as they confront these challenges. We will also discuss protocols and mediation strategies that working interpreters have successfully used. All of these best practices and strategies have been collected in the recently published Textbook and workbook The Indigenous Interpreter®. This webinar will be presented by one of the co-authors of this publication and will be beneficial to all working interpreter as well as those charged with providing interpretation for Indigenous and LLD languages.

Description:Healthcare interpreters are regularly exposed to situations that affect them psychologically and emotionally and the negative emotional effects interpreters in this setting have to deal with can impact their well-being and job performance. Many studies including Tiselius et al. (2020), Li et al (2022), Bontempo and Malcolm (2012), Rajpoot et al. (2020) have looked at this aspect of healthcare interpreting. This presentation aims to coalesce this research into one common literature review to discuss the causes of negative emotional effects that healthcare interpreters experience as well as the institutional responses to these issues and how those responses effectively support or fail to support the interpreters. The presentation discusses findings about the most stressful situations for healthcare interpreters which can include not being able to intervene when a patient is treated unfairly and interpreting for clients who experienced intense forms of trauma. Additionally, we will discuss how patients’ history of trauma affects interpreters. After looking at potential forms of institutional support, the conclusion will look towards where future research can pick up from these findings and how the institutional support mechanisms could be implemented.

As part of the Centers of Excellence in Newcomer Health, we’re dedicated to developing tools to support clinicians and interpreters in their efforts to better serve immigrant and refugee families.

Join our team from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Refugee Health Program & Language Services, HealthPartners Regions Hospital, and the Center of Excellence on September 13th from 1-5 p.m. ET for “COMET (COMmunication Engagement Training): An Interdisciplinary Course for Clinicians and Interpreters.” After this four-hour virtual, interactive, and interdisciplinary session using case studies and small group work, CHWs, social workers, clinicians and medical interpreters will be able to:
* Apply best practices for efficient, effective, person-centered communication in multilingual health care settings.
* Demonstrate advanced skills and cultural awareness for building rapport and communicating clearly when discussing sensitive topics, including COVID-19 vaccination and treatment.
* Experience even greater satisfaction in working with immigrant and newcomer patients.


Space is limited. If you register, please make every effort to attend. This is an interactive, virtual event requiring audience participation in small group activities, so we strongly recommend having audio and video capabilities via a stable internet connection.

Description:Did you know that you may be required by law to report suspected abuse as an medical interpreter? While it depends on where you're located, many laws in the U.S. about what is called mandatory reporting are vague and rarely inclusive of interpreters. In this workshop we invite participants to examine mandatory reporting requirements through the lens of medical interpreting ethics. We also explore the logistics of reporting when interpreting in the U.S. healthcare system, not only in situations where the patient and interpreter are in the same locality, but also under circumstances in which the interpreter may be in a different state, or even country. Participants are also encouraged to consider whether they have an ethical responsibility to report, even absent clear legal requirements.The workshop is delivered live via Zoom or can be watched as a recording. Participants will need to spend 1 hour watching/attending the workshop and at least 1 hour completing the self-paced exercises. The self-paced content is comprised of a series of quizzes, audios, PowerPoint slides, and PDFs. In order to obtain a certificate of completion, the student must complete and pass a quiz with a grade of at least 70%.

Description:For interpreters working in health care, consecutive interpreting is the primary mode used to facilitate communication between providers and patients. Thus, the mastery of this interpreting modality is vital to ensure that the interpreted message is delivered accurately and completely.

In this laboratory course, you’ll have the opportunity to practice with realistic vignettes in several medical settings to expand your general knowledge in many areas. These hands-on exercises will help you enhance your consecutive interpreting skills with regards to active listening, note-taking, concentration, visualization, and delivery.

Each simulated medical encounter is rich in medical jargon, idiomatic expressions, and challenging segments that will encourage you to continue to explore ways to become more proficient in this interpreting modality.

Description:It would be an excellent professional development exercise if healthcare interpreters could record themselves while interpreting an actual medical encounter so that they could listen back to and evaluate their interpreting performance. In this class, healthcare interpreters have an opportunity to do a close approximation of just that. Using a realistic audio recording of a “pediatric 2-month-old illness visit,” interpreters who complete this class demonstrate their consecutive interpreting skills and practice the skills of analyzing their own performance. After completing their own performance and self-evaluation, class participants are presented with a recording of a different interpreter’s rendition of the same dialog scenario, which they also analyze, evaluate, and compare with their own rendition. Finally, class participants are guided through an overall skills assessment using a form that presents several consecutive interpreting sub-skills; on this assessment, they also identify any variation in skills when working from or into either of the interpreted languages with the goal of identifying areas for improvement that can lead to skills parity in both working languages. This 1-hour online class is self-paced and available on-demand. Upon completing registration, individuals have access to the class for 60 days. In order to receive a certificate, interpreters must complete all components of the learning module, including viewing instructional videos, completing the interpreting skills activities as instructed and submitting 3 evaluation forms.

Description:As interpreters we are taught to use certain aids to ensure the accuracy of our interpretation, primarily through note-taking. From novice to experienced interpreters, we often rely on notes to aid in recall, but with even the most experienced interpreter, note-taking can be a hindrance to active listening. While note-taking is a fine and very useful skill, it is not meant to replace our memory, but rather, as an instrument, an aid to help us with recall. Since the tasks of interpreting can be likened to mental gymnastics, we can and should exercise our brains (or the parts therein) to enhance and strengthen our memory. In this lecture and guided practice, participants will learn how to hack their brains to rely less on notes plus learn useful strategies to “expand” memory in the moment and beyond

Description:COEs (Codes of Ethics) are a set of guiding principles that intend to help individuals in their decision-making process when encountering dilemmas or choosing a best practice. Although COEs are typically supplemented by SOPs (Standards of Practice), they don't provide guidance on all situations an individual might encounter or consider the context in which these situations occur. Interpreters often face this dilemma, where they need help finding specific advice for the problems they encounter or feel like contributing factors add a layer of complexity to the decision-making process. This workshop explains how interpreters can use critical thinking to overcome these challenges.

Description:The primary goal of healthcare interpreters is to facilitate communicative interactions for the purposes of improving the patient’s clinical outcome. This presentation invites interpreters to discuss and debate the following questions-- How is the interpreter’s primary goal impacted when the patient has died? Are interpreters at an increased risk for PTSD due to their unique role as “actor” playing the part of all grieving participants, as well as playing the part of "bearer of bad news" and feeling like an accomplice to a crime? What techniques might help protect the interpreter from the effects of interpreting before, during, and after patient death? How can we prevent interpreter burnout or retraumatizing the interpreter? What interventions might an interpreter make so as not to contribute to any unnecessary grief for the patient's loved ones who are left behind? Ultimately, we will explore all of this and how to assure our practices adhere to our field's standards of practice and code of ethics.

Description:Interpreters provide a service that is mentally taxing and requires constant upkeep. Aside from assignment-specific research and preparation, interpreters must regularly practice their interpreting techniques to maintain and improve the quality of their renditions. Reflexive practice is a common technique used to enhance any interpreting skills, however, a rubric to evaluate our own performance and a path towards improving deficiencies is essential to level up one's interpreting. This session will apply deliberate practice principles to enhancing interpreting skills and provide a rubric along with skill enhancement exercise suggestions to interpreters looking to improve the quality of their renditions.

If you answered yes to the questions above, this workshop is for you! As remote interpreters, our challenge is interpreting sessions back to back without losing perspective and emotional stability. This can be daunting! In this workshop, we will focus on how we can use Demand-Control Schema, a framework widely used by sign language interpreters, to analyze and discuss the work we do. Analyzing our work will reduce the stress that results from continually worrying about the decisions we make during the session. During the workshop, we will step back to discuss the elements of communication and outline four demand categories along with options to meet those demands.

Description:Increasingly, it's possible to have a digital life that feels completely separate from your physical one. But digital spaces aren't just for family photos, cat videos, and doomscrolling—they are powerful venues where helpful communities meet and interact, and where you just might find your next client.
The purpose of this webinar is to introduce interpreters to the Worker’s Compensation System in the United States.
Interpreters must understand and build technical terminology, basic vocabulary, and concepts when they interpret for workers who get hurt on the job and must navigate through the Worker’s Comp System, as it is also known.
The interpreter must be knowledgeable in different types of vocabulary: workplace safety basics, use of tools and machinery, health and ergonomics, pain and injury terms, types of work accidents, job descriptions, functional capacity programs, and specialized acronyms. They also need to know the forms to file claims, receive benefits, and to attend hearings at the Worker Compensation Appeals Board assignments.
We will review terminology, technical vocabulary, forms, and develop practical skill-building exercises, with examples from the Worker’s Comp System in California.

Description:Birth control or contraception is any method, medicine, or device used to prevent pregnancy. There are many different options available depending on the way they work. In the United States, when a patient requests information about birth control the provider explains the available options. Then, the patient makes a decision based on the explanations provided.

As English/Spanish interpreters, we can only interpret what we understand. Therefore, we need to be familiarized with male and female reproductive system, the basic methods of birth control, and the different terminology in English and Spanish that may be used during this type of medical encounter.

After this 2-hour English/Spanish class, participants will be familiar with the fundamental terminology related to the male and female reproductive system, and the different methods of birth control in both languages. This class will be conducted in Spanish with vocabulary in English.

Description:Exposure to abuse and other adverse experiences increases a person’s lifelong potential for serious health problems; little to no self-esteem; a deep, pervasive sadness; problems bonding with others; and a tendency towards self-destruction. Unfortunately, because emotional abuse is often tolerated or because the abusive parents are very secretive in their abuse, emotionally abused children will assume that how they were treated at home was normal. Therefore, it is important for people, especially those working with such individuals, to be mindful of the fact that so many people come to a healthcare interaction with a history of trauma of abuse. By understanding a patient’s life experiences and working alongside trained healthcare providers, we as interpreters can contribute to an effective care plan that can offer those with Limited English Proficiency a chance to rebuild the connections and trust that were fractured by abuse and betrayal. Please note that the content provided in this workshop is for informational purposes only and does not replace professional advice or counseling.

Presenter:Lisa Dion
Description:Research in neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology underscores the critical role of the professional as the external regulator, necessary not only to support the client in navigating the intensity of their experiences for integration but also to mitigate the impact of secondary traumatization. This workshop delves into this imperative during trauma integration for two primary reasons: Firstly, the child (or adult) relies on borrowing the professional’s regulatory capacity to confront their traumatic thoughts, feelings, and sensations in a session. Secondly, the professionals’ adeptness in self-regulation amidst intensity enhances their presence and attunement with the client, simultaneously safeguarding the health and longevity of their own nervous system. Thirdly, the role interpreters play when facilitating communication for Limited English Proficient and Deaf and Hard of hearing patients and the interpreter’s role in external regulation dynamic during the encounters.
Without the professional's capability to act as the external regulator for the intensity arising during trauma integration, both the client and professional face risks of emotional flooding and high levels of dysregulation in their nervous systems. Over time, this can significantly impact a professional’s endurance in the field, as well as their ability to remain attuned and present with clients.
This engaging and informative workshop equips participants with an understanding of the essential components of becoming an external regulator for trauma integration, including what the client's brain seeks in the environment to signal safety, a deeper comprehension of autonomic nervous system activation, and strategies for professionals to develop their capacity as external regulators while mitigating the risk of secondary traumatization. This workshop will also explore an in-depth understanding of the complex dynamic of a therapeutic encounter and strategies for managing difficult interpreting encounters when working with survivors of trauma. This workshop is for social workers, therapists, interpreters etc.

Description:Brain Health is an emerging and growing concept that includes neural development, plasticity, functioning, and recovery across the life course. Good brain health is a state in which every individual can realize their own abilities and optimize their cognitive, emotional, psychological, and behavioral functioning to cope with life situations. Numerous interconnected social and biological determinants, including genetics, play a role in brain development and brain health from pre-conception through the end of life. These determinants influence the way our brains develop, adapt, and respond to stress and adversity, giving way to strategies for both promotion and prevention across the life course. Given the science behind brain health, what are some healthy habits to consider? In this session, learners will practice techniques to enhance their memory capacity.

Description:Similar to other professions, healthcare interpreters are expected to follow certain guidelines as they perform their work. A code of ethics offers healthcare interpreters guidance on difficult decisions that they will need to make and a clear explanation of the type of behavior that is considered "ethical" or "correct" or "right" under the circumstances.

This is a self-paced training, designed to give healthcare (or medical) interpreters an overview or a review of the concept of ethics and the ethical principles that they should strive to adhere to as a member of the healthcare team. During this training, you will complete four lessons and three quizzes, including reflection activities and questions about best practices.

Description:The rise of Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI) and other forms of video remote interpreting has transformed the interpreting landscape, creating new opportunities and ethical dilemmas for practitioners. In fact, various forms of remote interpreting began decades ago, and RSI began just under a decade ago. But the number of people practicing remote interpreting exploded during Covid-2019, when remote work became the savior of our profession.
Those who practiced remote interpreting prior to 2020 developed their own behaviors to suit their market. As of today, there are several new markets and some experienced interpreters have developed their own practices, while newcomers to the field are navigating unfamiliar terrain. On the plus side, RSI provides many more opportunities for interpreters to make a living than ever before. On the negative side, there are also more opportunities to stumble over ethical issues.
This presentation will give examples of some of these often-unforeseen pitfalls and explore the appropriate way to work in this new (for many) environment.

Description:A decade of advancements in neural machine translation coupled with recent breakthroughs in generative AI and large language models are creating new opportunities to automate translation and improve multilingual access to healthcare, especially as this tech is combined with additional interactive and voice-focused technologies. However, medical environments present additional challenges and risks for patient safety and information security. In this presentation, translators and interpreters will learn to sift through both the extreme hype on one hand and the extreme fearmongering on the other to identify practical, appropriate uses for translation technology. Language professionals will also learn how to guide other medical professionals who increasingly need education on these ubiquitous technologies that fit in everyone's pockets.

Description:Idioms are a type of informal English that have a different meaning from the words used in the expression. For example, "hold your tongue" or "you are pulling my leg". Proverbs are a short pithy saying in general use, stating a general truth or piece of advice. For example, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder".
As a native Spanish speaker, I knew a many proverbs and idioms in my own language and always enjoyed finding the correct translation or equivalent in English. I started collecting, for obvious reasons, the ones related to body parts and now made a webinar about it!

During this 2-hour live webinar I will teach about idioms and proverbs that include body parts, their meaning, an equivalent in Spanish, and examples!

Description:Healthcare interpreted sessions that involve medications may be challenging. Many interpreters report struggling to interpret these sessions because of complicated drug names and lack of knowledge about medications. Since being ‘fluent in the language of medications’ can take many years, what could interpreters do to overcome the challenge? This session will answer the question by identifying and providing effective solutions based on known interpreting skills and protocols in order to succeed when interpreting sessions that involve medications.

Still, nearly one-third of U.S. hospitals fail to offer language services, and new research indicates that even in hospitals that have language access systems in place, over half of medical communication still occurs without professional interpretation. This workshop will outline how health systems can apply the principles of co-production in building language justice infrastructure that measurably advances health equity. Participants will explore how to adapt tools from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s “Engaging People with Lived Experiences” resource collection to enlist local communities in language access co-design and implementation efforts. Participants will also be introduced to replicable and sustainable language access models, how-to strategies for scaling an in-language experience systemwide, and data collection and analysis methods for program evaluation.

Description:La genética (Genetics) is a branch of biology concerned on how living things receive common traits from previous generations. It studies genes, DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), chromosomes, genetic variation, and heredity in organisms.

As English/Spanish interpreters, we can only interpret what we understand. Therefore, we need to be familiarized with the fundamental terminology about genetics in English and Spanish since it is used during prenatal diagnosis, newborn screening, genetic counseling, and diagnosis and treatment of genetic diseases. Also, interpreters of languages other-than-Spanish need to understand the information rendered in English in order to find an adequate translation or functional equivalent into their languages.

After this 2-hour English/Spanish class, participants will be familiar with the fundamental terminology, diseases and conditions, diagnosis, and treatments related to genetics in both languages. This class will be conducted in Spanish with vocabulary in English.

This is a 3-hour online workshop that will take place over Zoom, and is geared towards spoken and sign language interpreters who have little to no prior knowledge about this topic. We will also learn terminology that surrounds those various communities and identities, outlining a descriptivist approach to research in working languages. Special considerations for interpreting for these communities and identities will be examined. We will discuss not only the impact our language (spoken or signed) can have on the individuals we interpret for, but also our interpreting colleagues. We anticipate this workshop will be given 1-2 times per year.

Description:This is a 3-hour online workshop that will take place over Zoom, and is geared towards spoken and sign language interpreters who have little to no prior knowledge about this topic. In this session, we will discuss biases related to gender, sexual, and relationship diversity, as well as how these biases, both conscious and unconscious, can have a bearing on the interpreted session. These topics will be explored through the lens of interpreting ethics, including the RID Code of Professional Conduct, NCIHC Code of Ethics, and the AAITE Code of Ethics for Interpreters in Education, among other ethical frameworks. Participants will have an opportunity to consider how queer and LGBTQ+ mental and physical health is impacted by stigma. Participants will also consider to what degree they have an ethical responsibility to either support wellbeing, or prevent harm in interpreted sessions. The main ethical concepts to be discussed are: beneficence & non-maleficence, respect, professionalism, impartiality, and accuracy. We will also explore the physicality of impartiality, and how our facial expressions, body language, tone, reflexes, and even physiological reactions can impact our ability to remain neutral, especially in gender-affirming medical care settings. Because lack of familiarity with gender-affirming care and related procedures can contribute to breakdowns in not only accuracy, but impartiality, we will also explore medical procedures and terminology that might come up during interpreting encounters with gender expansive clients.

Description:In order to be effective interpreters, we must strive to learn a little about all conditions and diseases. We must also keep abreast of detailed area terminology. In this collaborative workshop, we will

• Identify the most common urology terms
• Discuss some tests
• Go over medications
• Collaborate with participants in order to dissect a small list of medical terms into their corresponding parts (root, prefix, suffix) so that we are better prepared when interpreting.

Description:HealthPartners is offering a training for medical interpreters on Health Literacy. To maintain their own health and the health of their families and communities, patients and plan members rely heavily on the health information that is available to them. Yet tens of millions of individuals are not able to understand and use the information that their doctor, clinic, hospital, or health plan share with them. Limited health literacy takes a tremendous toll, particularly on the already-underserved populations. Improving health literacy is a key to advancing health equity. This training is an introduction to health literacy.

Description:Most language access in healthcare is provided by remote interpreters, yet they remain largely invisible inside our profession. Our ethics, standards, protocols, trainings, and certifications were built around face-to-face encounters and do not adequately prepare interpreters, clients or end users to the unique remote interpreting workplace requirements. The price we pay is steep. Per-minute rates have become the norm, commoditizing remote interpreters and threatening pay and working conditions for everyone. Join the presenters for this interactive call-to-action session exploring concrete actions individual interpreters, professional associations and language service providers can take to finally integrate remote interpreters into our profession.

Description:MasterWord presents a fast-moving and example-filled overview of HIPAA for Medical Interpreters. It addresses the many issues particular to interpreters, and focuses on the types of breaches which most frequently occur. The right of patients under HIPAA to see and request copies of their own medical chart is also covered.
HIPAA for medical interpreters is specifically designed to prepare you to practice within HIPAA legal guidelines relating to privacy of patient information.

All interpreters know that they are not supposed to reveal the names of their patients. But how much information can be shared with family members who accompanied the patient to the hospital? When does a teenage patient have rights to privacy from his parents? Does a patient have rights to see his own record, to get a copy of his own record, and to restrict his name appearing on the inpatient or ER directory? How can reminder calls be made in a HIPAA-compliant way? What should one do if one has lost paperwork with patient information on it?

Description:As interpreters, particularly in the field of healthcare, we are exposed to and have undoubtably received education and training on HIPAA and HIPAA Compliance. For medical interpreters, this training usually happens in the initial forty-hour course (40 hour). For in house interpreters, this training is annual. For freelancers, however, it does not work that way. Some agencies may provide training or at least offer recommendations as to where the contractor may obtain training. It is surprising to know that what freelancers
receive, regarding HIPAA and HIPAA Compliance, is geared towards an employee/employer relationship.

Despite this, many freelancers are unaware of what their true responsibilities are regarding both the Privacy and Security Rules of HIPAA.

Description:HealthPartners is offering a training for medical interpreters on Hospital to Home: Safe Discharge Planning. Discharging home from a hospital or transitional care unit is a very stressful time for all patients and their families/caregivers. Post discharge information is communicated verbally and provided in writing, but the discharge instructions often contain large amounts of information that is unclear and/or hard to understand. Interpreters have a critical role when interpreting discharge instructions. We will review risks to patients that can lead to poor management of their health and readmission to the hospital. We will also ask participants to give us their feedback on their experiences with discharge planning through the lens of the interpreter.

Interpreters must be trained on the possible scenarios & vocabulary that can come up in this field and what renditions are best suitable for this specialized terminology.

Description:Certification, whether as translators or interpreters, is a necessary step to prove our commitment to the profession and that our skills and knowledge meet the minimum requirements. After we get certified, we need to continue growing as professionals and honing our skills. The best way to prove this is getting recertified. This means that, despite the years, we still meet the minimum requirements and that we are committed to continue learning. Unfortunately, newly certified translators or interpreters, may not know where to start, what are the requirements for recertification, or may find that this process is confusing or stressful. After this 1-hour language-neutral (English) webinar, participants will be familiar with the different requirements for recertification for a medical interpreter certification (CHI, CMI, DSHS, and Oregon) and a court interpreter certification (in California), how to get organized, and tips to meet the recertification deadline without stress. This class is taught in English for translators and interpreters of all languages.

Description:Healthcare interpreters invest a significant amount of time in learning medical terminology and the ins and outs of the US healthcare system - and rightly so. However, interpreting encounters in healthcare settings are not all dense medical jargon. They involve real people speaking real language, which may include small talk, stories, jokes, idioms, and cultural references. It might seem that interpreting idioms is less important than getting the medical facts right, but idioms may contain key messages such as descriptions of a patient's progress or lack thereof and a speaker's attitude toward the situation. This 2-hour self-paced class will equip participants with strategies for dealing with idioms and cultural references and allow participants to develop the newly acquired skills through practice activities. At the end of the class, participants will be provided with a list of suggested resources for further practice and study of idioms.

Materials include a PowerPoint presentation with embedded video of the presenter, several sets of consecutive interpretation practice exercises, additional practice and review exercises, suggested resources for further study of idioms, and an end-of course assessment. The didactic part of the presentation was designed using credible professional sources and references in the fields of medical interpreting, conference interpreting and Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) describing types of idiomatic expressions and best practices for handling them. These are supplemented by real-life examples of idiomatic language used in medical contexts collected by the trainer.

While some job demands certainly appear to be unique (e.g., talking about suicide), others will appear to be deceptively straightforward. This presentation aims to raise interpreting practitioners’ awareness around the unique demands in mental health settings – from the mindset of diagnostics to the nature of the dynamics

Description:The National Board requires recertification every 5 years.

The recertification requirements have been developed to promote continued competence, the component of professional development that addresses the minimum requirements of contemporary practice. This means maintaining the skills and knowledge required for accurate, complete and competent medical interpretation delivered in an ethical and professional manner. Recertification provides an opportunity for interpreters to strengthen and expand their knowledge and skills. To achieve this purpose, continuing education units are only accepted for training directly related to medical interpretation.

In this presentation NBMCI and IMIA staff will provide all the information CMIs need to know about collecting CEUs and getting ready for recertification.

Description:The year 2020 had been “tumultuous” to say the very least, changing paradigms in the world and making history. Particularly, during the first half of 2020, our nation found itself drawn into two crises not just for the pandemic and its implications on minorities health, but also for the “matters of life and breath”.
Interpreters as the front-line healthcare workers, were immediately involved in happenings and stories, assisting LEP on assignments. And we realized, once again, that for always we had been witnesses of all types of events, among them, acts of racism and disparities in multiple instances, where we struggle internally between being just a “conduit” and our moral obligation to act as “advocate”. In this presentation we are going to review the results of a NBCMI survey regarding the most controversial role of the Interpreter: The Advocacy role. We will review the Medical Interpreter’s ethical framework and introduce a dialogue towards a “contemporary approach” to the advocacy dilemma.

Presenter:Marge Curtis
Description:A recent study from the William Institute estimates that about 1.4 million transgender people live in the US. In light of recent federal legislation, cultural shifts, and an emerging population of transgender individuals in the media and public sphere, this community has become more visible. Thus, the prevalence of interpretation encounters with transgender patients is surfacing as a commonality. The transgender community faces a wide range of health disparities. Studies from the William Institute indicate that the rate of attempted suicide among transgender individuals is 41%. Access to quality healthcare is crucial in reducing these disparities. Regardless of opinion or politics, we as interpreters should be prepared to provide the highest level of care to all of our patients. This training was created with the goal of educating interpreters on best practices for working with transgender individuals in need of both basic and trans-specific healthcare.

Description:Key Information about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
In order to effectively communicate as interpreters with patients struggling with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), it is crucial to grasp the underlying concepts to employ accurate terminology. Start by comprehending the functioning and purpose of our kidneys. Familiarize with some of CKD symptoms, and what to do next upon diagnosis. Recognize potential causes, and know the different stages of CKD, including the progression to Kidney Failure/ESRD. Distinguish the difference between these two. Also, as interpreters, be prepared to leverage advocacy through clarification and repetition to explain available treatment options, empowering patients through education so they can make informed decisions about their future health care plan.

Presenter:Alexandra Guevara-Salcedo
Description:Due to the broader implementation of laws regarding language services in the healthcare setting, the need for interpreting and translation services is constantly expanding. However, there is still lack of knowledge on what those two disciplines entail and oftentimes professional interpreters and translators are put on the spot and asked to perform duties that fall outside their expertise and/or skills. Interpreting and translation, although related disciplines, require different skills which need to be acquired through specific training. An example of how sometimes language professionals are expected to perform out of their capability, is sight translation. As on-site healthcare interpreters many of us have been asked to “read out loud” a document written in English to a patient in their native language with the purpose of saving some time to the provider or staff who can complete other patient-related tasks in the meantime. Even though in some instances it may be a reasonable request, other times it involves a large and complex text that should have been translated in advance.

Description:Healthcare interpreters invest a significant amount of time in learning medical terminology and the ins and outs of the US healthcare system - and rightly so. However, interpreting encounters in healthcare settings are not all dense medical jargon - they involve real people speaking real language, which may include small talk, stories, jokes, idioms, and cultural references. Representation, terminology, and cultural references are unique within the LGBTQ+ Community, which must be accurately and neutrally facilitated by the healthcare interpreter. Not only does the interpreter need to get the right facts, but the right jargon, which is culturally appropriate and respectful, without bias from the interpreter.

Description:Language barriers for people with limited English proficiency (LEP) exist in the perinatal period and postpartum care. Health disparities associated with language barriers include decreased access to quality prenatal care, higher‑risk deliveries, disproportionate obstetric trauma, and increased postpartum depression. One way to address the cultural, societal, and family norms of childbirth is to include a certified medical interpreter (CMI) as part of the team. Working together a healthcare team that includes a CMI can reduce disparities, improve outcomes, and improve satisfaction for LEP persons. This training will address the systematic changes a culturally competent team can make to improve maternal health and reduce infant mortality.

Description:The Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been using Video Remote Interpreting since 1996 to conduct immigration hearings for non-English and hard of hearing individuals. Despite this, to date, no standardized, industry-wide best practices have been established regarding remote interpreting for court, medical, education, community interpreters, or others. The widespread use of remote technologies caused by the pandemic mobilized many organizations to suggest best practices for effective remote interpreting. Based on the available literature, online resources, and instructor’s experience, this webinar will study what ethical issues (confidentiality, accuracy, etc.) may be affected by the use of these technologies and propose sound solutions to the problems that may arise.

Description:BIDMC INTERPRETER ETHICS ROUNDS is a forum for BIDMC per diem and staff interpreters, unless otherwise specified. This workshop is one of a Series of 6 lunch-time, 1-hour workshops presented throughout the calendar year. It is a forum for interpreters who have found themselves in ethically challenging situations to share the story with colleagues. Attendees participate in a discussion led by a staff moderator/discussant/presenter and benefit from learning relevant information and reflecting on various possible approaches that may be effective for them to take if they find themselves in similar situations. Alternatively, a guest presenter will present a topic with links to interpreter Ethics and Standards of Practice. A recording of the webinar may be posted for BIDMC interpreters who could not attend in person.

The members of the care team will present the case. The patient consistently and repeatedly refused medical interpreter services throughout his course of care and formally requested that interpreter services no longer be offered while receiving treatment. Could including the medical interpreter have had any impact on the outcome? What would be the way of providing the care respecting the patient’s autonomy?

During the case presentation, we will discuss various dilemmas in postoperative care for non-English speaking patients. Among the ethical challenges presented will be the aspect of patient autonomy with regard to adaptive preferences and informed consent, the principles of beneficence and nonmaleficence in the context of patients with language barriers, etc.
Additionally, we will reflect on the appropriate ways of including the medical interpreter in the healthcare team with respect to the patient’s preferred language of communication and the provider’s intention to avoid miscommunication and ensure fully informed care. Ethical dilemmas in complex postoperative care often require a multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, we will discuss the linguistic and cultural aspects of care in patients with limited English proficiency.

Over the years, we have occasionally discussed difficult patients in Interpreter Ethics Rounds. Some of you may remember the more recent cases from the past several years: one patient complained and berated all the hospital staff, including interpreters; another cursed and insulted interpreters personally.
David Sontag (BILH Senior Associate General Counsel and Director of Ethics), BIDMC Lieutenant David Hoffman, and Barbara Sarnoff Lee (BIDMC Senior Director, Social Work and Patient/Family Engagement) will educate us about BIDMC CP-70 policy (Managing Disruptive Patient Behavior). In particular, we will discuss the process for responding, reporting up to managers or other hospital leadership, and documenting such events. We will also review some patient-centered responses we can use to respond.
Although we hope that in most cases clinicians will address such issues while we interpret, interpreters nonetheless should be aware of the policy and supports available.

It is a forum for interpreters who have found themselves in ethically challenging situations to share their stories with colleagues. Attendees participate in a discussion led by a staff moderator/discussant/presenter and benefit from learning relevant information and reflecting on various possible approaches that may be effective for them to take if they find themselves in similar situations. Alternatively, a guest presenter will present a topic with links to interpreter Ethics and Standards of Practice. A recording of the webinar may be posted for BIDMC interpreters who could not attend in person.

The interpreter was requested for an over-the-phone interpretation during a pelvic ultrasound appointment. When the interpreter called, she learned that the ultrasound technician and the patient had a conflict. The interpreter was familiar with mediation techniques. How will she navigate through the conflict?
There are different points of view on whether or not an interpreter should take any part in managing the conflict situation. One point of view is that the interpreter should not interfere in the conversation in any way and "just interpret". The second point of view is that within a conversation, there may be space for mediator techniques to be used that can help expose the cause of the conflict and thus contribute to its resolution. Moreover, interpreters working in different settings (for example, in a hospital, and in an agency) may have different opinions on this matter due to the different workflow organization.
We will learn the definition of a conflict, discuss the similarities of mediators' and interpreters' codes of ethics and compare two versions of a scenario. In one version, the interpreter conveys the messages accurately and completely, but the outcome is not ideal. In the other version, the interpreter occasionally intervenes to improve the outcome. Keeping in mind the value of beneficence towards all the parties and the shared goal of good patient care, we will consider various points of view on applying the mediation techniques during an interpretation encounter.

A Russian interpreter was requested for a face-to-face ultrasound. The male patient refused the female interpreter, saying he didn’t want to speak Russian because of the Russian-Ukrainian war and preferred to speak English. Previously, Russian interpreters had assisted him successfully. What happened? What should an interpreter in similar situations say or do?
There are several reasons patients may turn down interpreter services, including international conflicts, gender differences, and many more. It is helpful to identify the underlying reason in order to tailor the response to best meet the needs of all parties concerned. The range of interpreter responses available may differ depending on the communications needs of the particular appointment, as well as whether another interpreter is available. We will discuss various reasons patients may decline interpreters and, keeping in mind the overarching values of beneficence and good patient care, consider various interpreter responses that may apply.

A 94-year-old patient was admitted to the intensive care unit with multi-organ failure. The medical team conducts several discussions with the family about the goals of care but cannot find common ground. An interpreter interpreted via phone during all goals of care encounters. After the third goals of care meeting both the team and family are frustrated. Is there something an interpreter can do to help the medical team and the family communicate more effectively?

Interpreter Trainings recommend a pre-encounter huddle with clinicians; however, this seldom occurs in practice. If the interpreter is not included in pre-encounter huddle, the interpreter is “parachuted in” to the clinical encounter with no context, no clinical information, and no information on the outcomes of previous meetings.
We will hear the clinician’s perspective on the importance of including interpreters in the pre-session huddle and debriefing post-session to improve communications in support the shared goal of good patient care. We will consider how the interpreter can ask to be included in a pre- or post- meeting with the team with the goal of improving communication and mutual understanding, especially when interpreting remotely.

This workshop is one of a Series of 6 lunch-time, 1-hour workshops presented throughout the calendar year.

Alternatively, a guest presenter will present a topic with links to interpreter Ethics and Standards of Practice such as palliative care. A recording of the webinar will be posted for BIDMC interpreters who could not attend in person.

During this session, we will discuss some example cases illustrating how the intended meaning may be subtly lost in spite of interpreting accurately. In most cased this is a result of different cultural backgrounds and perspective, so that the message may be accurately conveyed, and yet seem to imply a different shade of meaning in the target language. Interpreters will share examples and discuss their strategies for combining interpreter accuracy with listener comprehension.


Ethical principles
—Accuracy - The interpreter strives to render the message accurately, conveying the content and spirit of the original message, taking into consideration its cultural context. The interpreter replicates the register, style, and tone of the speaker.
—Cultural Awareness - The interpreter continuously strives to develop awareness of his/her own and other (including biomedical) cultures encountered in the performance of their professional duties.
—Respect - Ensure that the listener understands the message.

Description:"Community interpreters are still adjusting to the rise in remote interpreting caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals who were satisfied with their in-person interpreting assignments have had to adapt to the demands of an increasingly virtual world. Change is hard and adapting to a new interpreting reality is no exception.

Furthermore, numerous community interpreters have had to make the transition to routine remote interpreting with limited understanding of how to serve their clients and retain the interpersonal connection created through in-person interpreting. This webinar will explore how individual interpreters can incorporate interpersonal elements of in-person interpreting in their new virtual or hybrid reality.

Change is not easy. Join us to learn how you can advocate for yourself and the profession, improve overall job satisfaction, and increase career longevity. "

Description:For interpreters, conversations involving the end of life can be among the most difficult to convey — not only linguistically and culturally, but personally. Providers often approach this topic obliquely, making it hard to convey their real meaning, and families can react in any manner of ways. Programs such as hospice, palliative care, and spiritual care through a chaplain can be unfamiliar to patients. And then, there are the interpreter’s own feelings to consider.

This interactive seven-hour workshop is designed to prepare experienced healthcare interpreters to provide services in end-of-life situations. It includes:
• An Introduction to Interpreting at the End of Life, including:
o The difference between hospice, palliative care and ICUs.
o Working with chaplains.
o The physiology of death
o The Kubler-Ross Grief Cycle.
• The Vocabulary of Palliative Care and Hospice:
o exercises with English vocabulary.
o exercises in conversion to a language other than English.
• Practice interpreting exercises in end-of-life scenarios.
• Sight Translation of DNR and POLST forms.
• The Impact of Emotion and Belief on Interpreting.

Bilingual glossaries, conversion exercises and interpreting exercises will be provided in Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, traditional and simplified Chinese, Tagalog and Korean.

Description:Cancer care can be a complex process involving multidisciplinary teams and a variety of diagnostic procedures and treatment options. When interpreting in cancer care, interpreters may encounter highly specialized vocabulary, explanations of complex concepts and procedures, not to mention difficult to pronounce medication names. Communication between a cancer care team and a LEP patient may be further complicated by cultural differences in understanding what cancer is and in expectations of what happens when a patient is diagnosed with cancer. Interpreters need to be aware of the language they might encounter in cancer care appointments as well as challenges specific to interpreting in oncological settings. This 4-hour workshop will provide an overview of cancer as a group of diseases, common oncology terms, types of cancer and related anatomy and physiology, symptomatology, diagnostic procedures, common treatments and their side effects as well as challenges that interpreters face when interpreting for cancer care. The participants will be provided with handouts which will include a copy of the PowerPoint Presentation, a glossary, written practice and role-playing exercises. The workshop will be interactive and allow the participants to review the material through group activities and oral interpreting practice.

Description:One of the most difficult aspects of an interpreter’s job can present itself when an oncology patient is approaching end of life, especially when this patient is a minor. It is important for the interpreter to help providers navigate the cultural and ethical considerations when offering compassionate care. This presentation aims to explain the interpreter’s role in a pediatric oncology palliative care setting. We will discuss different strategies on how to prepare for and communicate effectively during emotionally heavy conversations between families and providers as they discuss the oftentimes taboo subject of “death and dying.”

Description:As the language services industry grows and expands, interpreters are consistently being called to assist in more and more corners of the healthcare system. Moreover, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, when we saw the need for language access soar, hospital and clinic-based interpreters are finding themselves increasingly more involved in end-of-life family meetings and patient conversations. For many of us, this is unfamiliar territory and one that may make us feel uncomfortable or even fearful. Questions like, “What does this type of encounter even look like?”, “What terminology will I hear?”, and “What do I do if the patient bursts into tears?” pervade when we approach this idea of an end-of-life interpretation. Whether the encounter will be in the ICU or in a surgery center or cancer clinic, the goal of this workshop is to help prepare and empower us, as interpreters, both linguistically and emotionally for these difficult topics so that we may provide the highest quality and more compassionate service possible to our patient families and provider colleagues.

Description:Forensic evaluations are used in many contexts including healthcare settings, legal criminal proceedings, and immigration hearings. A successful forensic evaluation often requires the interviewee to detail uncomfortable and upsetting information about their lives. In this workshop, participants will learn from a physician and a certified medical interpreter about the format, flow, and questions contained in a typical forensic evaluation, as well as best practices for conducting the interview via an interpreter. We will discuss pre-session preparation, tips for establishing rapport, and strategies for working with clients using a trauma-informed approach. The workshop will involve didactic teaching with extensive participant interaction and discussion in addition to a one-hour practice period in which attendees will work on three realistic scenarios the trainers have identified as particularly difficult. Finally, we will conclude with a discussion of additional training resources and ways to get involved in forensic evaluations moving forward.

Description:Pregnancy is often associated with new life. However, not all pregnancies result in the birth of a healthy child. Obstetric care accounts for a large volume of medical encounters requiring an interpreter. While routine obstetric visits may be predictable and short, medical interpreters need to be prepared to interpret for LEP patients who experience pregnancy complications and loss.

During this session, you will learn about common causes, terminology, and standard care for infant and pregnancy loss. Additionally, you will hear stories about women who have first-hand experiences with this tragic loss of life. Their stories will provide insight on the emotional, physical, and psychological toll of experiencing this type of loss.

Coming away from this session you will not only be more intellectually prepared, but also better equipped mentally and emotionally to interpret for patients in these encounters. You will also learn why professional interpreting services can significantly improve outcomes for LEP patients and family members in such situations.

Description:According to a publication by the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, in the past 30 years, just about 1 million people in the United States have received an organ transplant. These same data also show that the number of transplants performed has quadrupled in this same 30-year period. As such, interpreters are consistently being called in more and more to assist with these specialized encounters. And while there is certainly overlap between the different types of transplants, the field is vast and highly technical, and each organ transplant type comes with its own unique factors and nuances. Moreover, the transplantation process is very long, and it can be difficult for interpreters to be aware of and prepared for the stage of the process into which they are stepping. This means that we need to be well-versed in the entire process as well as the common terminology and diagnoses to provide the best interpretation possible for our patients and our provider colleagues.

Description:Palliative care seeks to optimize quality of life and to relieve physical and emotional suffering through pain management, comfort care, and spiritual support. It relies on regular, clear communication between patients, providers, and families. Interpreters are key members of any palliative care team serving LEP families.

For interpreters, conversations involving palliative care are often very difficult to convey. This is especially true with patients who are at the end of their life. The challenge is not only linguistic, it is also cultural and emotional.

This 8-hour workshop, designed by a team of interpreters and palliative care specialists, has been created to support interpreters who work in such settings. It includes:

An Introduction to Palliative Care

Interpreting Skills Applied to Palliative Care

The Vocabulary of Palliative Care

Sight Translation in Palliative Care

The Impact of Emotion and Belief on Interpreting

This multimedia, interactive training includes videos, PowerPoint presentations, vocabulary exercises and practice of both consecutive interpreting and sight translation. Bilingual medical glossaries and practice activities are provided in Cantonese/traditional Chinese, Mandarin/simplified Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.

This 7-hour interactive online workshop (limited to 30 participants) is a special opportunity for interpreters to learn to work in the fast-changing field of prenatal genetics, using a new curriculum in collaboration with the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics. This workshop introduces basic concepts in genetics and addresses the role of the genetic counselor, common prenatal genetic tests, and the most common genetic issues that arise in pregnancy. Technical vocabulary is introduced and exercises help the interpreter learn the vocabulary both in English and a non-English language. Finally, interpreting exercises based on real-life prenatal interviews create opportunities for practice. Language-specific glossaries and practice exercises are provided in Spanish, Cantonese, Vietnamese and Arabic.

Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of class, gender, race, age, disability, religion or educational background. Medical interpreters may find themselves interpreting for survivors of domestic violence in a wide variety of settings - from an emergency room to a counseling session. Interpreting in such encounters can present unique challenges to interpreters in terms of terminology, the importance of upholding the ethical principles, and vicarious trauma.

Description:Elderly patients make up a significant portion of individuals with limited English proficiency within immigrant communities. Working with them can present various communication challenges for both healthcare providers and interpreters. This challenges stem from limited mobility, memory impairments, chronic physical or mental health conditions, palliative care, severe chronic pain, and sensory impairments such as hearing or vision loss. Moreover, older patients with LEP introduce unique cultural challenges related to personal space, gender, age, and overall perception of communication. Being able to recognize and address these issues, along with attending to emotional needs of elderly patients enables smoother flow of communication and more successful interpreting encounters. This presentation is not language-specific and will offer valuable insights for interpreters of various languages.

Description:Recently, healthcare disparities have been a hot topic among healthcare professionals. As medical interpreters we are aware of certain disparities our Limited English Proficient (LEP) patients face, and our role as medical interpreters to help patients bridge those gaps. However, when it comes to helping an LEP Patient from the LGBTQI community, additional knowledge and skills are needed to successfully navigate the added layers of complexity that this specific intersection of race, gender, culture, and linguistics poses for medical interpreters.

This course intends to familiarize medical interpreters with basic LGBTQIA+ concepts, the use of affirming language, and foster awareness of the intersectionality between LGBTQIA+ culture and healthcare. Furthermore, interpreters will gain insight into gender non-conforming patients’ healthcare experiences.

Topics:
• Review basic LGBTQI terms and concepts
• Learn and practice how to interact with gender non-conforming patients using affirming language
• Model how to better understand and interact with gender non-conforming patients
• Educate interpreters about where to find affirming and inclusive LGBT resources
• Discuss best practices for medical interpreters in an LGBTQI encounter
• Talk about linguistic challenges specific to these encounters
• Practice how to apply these principles in an LGBTQI interpreting encounter

After completing the online learning module and attending the live webinar, interpreters should be familiar with basic LGBTQIA+ concepts, understand the struggles patients from that community face, as well as how to use gender affirming language. Medical interpreters will be equipped with tools and knowledge to improve the service they provide gender non-conforming patients.
The course will be divided in three parts:
1) Asynchronous Learning Module about Gender Diversity (15 min) – Created by Mayo Clinic Gender Diversity Staff
2) An Introduction to the LGBTQI Community – Presented by Monica Ibarra (25 min)
3) Break Out Groups with Role Play Practice on How to Address Gender Non-Conforming Patients and Follow Up Discussion - Led by Collen Cudo, RID CI/CT, Andres Gonzalez, CMI and Marisa Rueda Will, CHI (35 min)

Presenter:Ludmila Golovine
Description:By the nature of the work they do, interpreters are often faced with opportunities to facilitate communication for vulnerable sectors of society. In this presentation, we will explore one such group, survivors of human trafficking. Participants will be walked through possible experiences of victims of human trafficking, including the voluntary or involuntary departure from their home, and the many characteristics that shape their perspective and frame of reference, including how to recognize red flags to spot trafficking victims. We will also discuss the distinct role interpreters play in various stages of a survivor’s journey and additional communication challenges that arise from the trauma that the victim has experienced. We will touch on the ethical and legal implications interpreting for the victims and survivors may have on the interpreter, including the cross-roads between legal and ethical responsibility to maintain confidentiality and reporting obligations. We will review the tools and resources that are available for victims, survivors and those who serve them, such as interpreters.

Participants will learn the principles of trauma-informed care, gain understanding of trauma-informed interviewing, learn how to avoid re-traumatization of victims and survivors, and garner strategies to manage difficult situations when interpreting for Human Trafficking victims and survivors.

Description:This webinar covers interpreting for check-ups and well visits in the following areas of specialization: Adult Medicine and Pediatrics, often referred to as Family Medicine, and the Dental Clinic. Resources, recommendations and best practices for interpreting in these settings will be shared. The majority of the presentation is devoted into delving into what distinguishes annual check-ups for men vs women, adult vs an infant or child, and what one can expect will happen during these types of visits. With the changes brought about by the implementation of Section 1557, more and more dental practices are scheduling interpreters for their patients. A review of practices for preventative (annual check-ups) and corrective (orthodontia) dental care will be reviewed.

Additional objectives:
Participants will learn terminology and concepts related to development, metrics and measurements;
Participants will get familiar with proper protocols before, during and after the examination.

Description:The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires public schools to provide special education and related services to eligible students. But not every child who struggles in school qualifies. To be covered, a child’s school performance must be “adversely affected” by a disability in one of the 13 categories.

Description:Oral/Written Language Disorders and Specific Reading Comprehension Deficits are learning disabilities that affect a person’s ability to understand written or oral language. One such diagnosis, dyslexia, is often difficult to understand for parents and students. Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. With this in mind, interpreters in education and healthcare must have a firm grasp of the terminology, tests, and exercises (drills) that may be frequently encountered (interpreted) during a session; whether during an IEP, or with a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP).

Description:Digraphia is “a neurological disorder of written expression that impairs writing ability and fine motor skills”. According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, symptoms of dysgraphia include the following: trouble forming letters/shapes, awkward and or tight gripping of writing implement, difficulty staying within margins or following the lines on paper, following the rules of grammar when writing but not when speaking, difficulty writing and articulating thoughts on paper just to name a few. As English speakers, we may find these signs and symptoms of dysgraphia to be vague. Now imagine how it must be for the LEP parent whose situation is compounded by a language barrier. This is why, as interpreters, we must expend more time gaining a basic understanding of these disabilities as much as we focus on other terminology.

Description:Physical therapy (PT) is a healthcare profession that provides treatment to individuals with physical impairments or injuries, many of which are caused by work-related activities. PTs use a variety of modalities, including exercise, physical movements, weights, and education for home therapy. The goal or goals are designed to help a specific patient’s needs, which include improving range of motion, strength, balance and coordination. Each set of goals will be established based on what the orthopedic doctor/surgeon has recommended as an individual’s therapeutic needs.

In this focused workshop, we will cover briefly three aspects of Physical Therapy with specialized vocabulary in each area, as well as other peripheral topics that are needed to get an overall understanding of why a patient may be in Physical Therapy (see Sections below).

Description:As more treatments and technologies become available to prolong life, patients and families must now consider not only the length of life but what quality of life matters to them. Palliative care is a quick growing field in medicine that focuses on optimizing quality of life through the management of pain and other symptoms, patient comfort, and spiritual support.
A survey conducted by the California Health Care Foundation in 2010 of patients receiving palliative care in that state found that 40 % spoke limited English. Since palliative care depends on regular, clear communication between patients, providers, and families, interpreters are key members of any palliative care team.
For interpreters, conversations involving palliative care, especially those at the end of life, can be of the most difficult to convey, not only linguistically and culturally, but emotionally. This multimedia, interactive seven-hour workshop is designed to prepare experienced medical interpreters to work in palliative care settings.

Palliative care seeks to optimize quality of life and to relieve physical and emotional suffering through pain management, comfort care, and spiritual support. A 2010 survey of patients in public hospitals receiving palliative care found that 40% spoke limited English. Since palliative care depends on regular, clear communication among providers, patients, and families, interpreters are key members of any palliative care team.
For interpreters, conversations involving palliative care, especially those at the end of life, can be among the most difficult to convey — not only linguistically and culturally, but personally. Yet to date, there has been little training for interpreters in this field.
This seven-hour workshop curriculum is free and can be downloaded. Note that the curriculum was designed for health care interpreter trainers to use in preparing experienced medical interpreters to work in palliative care settings. The most common non-English languages in California are provided: simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.

This seven-hour workshop is designed for preparing experienced medical interpreters in palliative care settings. The major messages participants will take away: Palliative care is a distinct and rapidly expanding area of medicine with which all interpreters should be familiar. Palliative care conversations present unique challenges for interpreters that require specific knowledge and skills to overcome. Through study and reflective practice, interpreters can expand their knowledge and improve both their interpreting skills and comfort level related to interpreting in palliative care settings.

Description:This teaching session aims to provide medical interpreters with an in-depth understanding of civil rights laws as they relate to healthcare interpretation and language access. The discussion will focus on Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, while also touching upon the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The session begins by explaining the difference between statutes and regulations, highlighting the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government and their respective roles in creating, enforcing, and interpreting laws. It emphasizes that both statutes and regulations carry the full force of the law.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is explored, addressing the conditions that led to its implementation, the law's purpose, and whether it has achieved its intended goals. The focus then narrows to Title VI of the Act, which specifically pertains to language access in healthcare. The consequences of violating this law are discussed.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is introduced in the context of expanding civil rights, particularly in terms of accommodating individuals with disabilities and their communication needs, such as the provision of interpreters for the deaf or hard of hearing.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is examined next, highlighting its intention to build upon Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and improve language access in healthcare. Section 1557 of the ACA is explained, outlining its requirements for language access, including the provision of qualified medical interpreters.

Enforcement of Title VI and Section 1557 is explored, showcasing success stories and examining the impact of these laws. The need for further strengthening enforcement mechanisms is addressed, and a proposed solution is introduced—the Non-Discrimination Enforcement Rule. Drawing inspiration from the HIPAA Enforcement Rule, this rule suggests implementing civil monetary penalties to enhance enforcement without requiring legislative action.

In concluding the session, the broader social implications of these laws and regulations are discussed, emphasizing the importance of language access and non-discrimination in healthcare. Ongoing challenges in ensuring these rights are highlighted, and the session concludes with a Q&A session to address any remaining queries and gauge audience comprehension.

Description:By approaching interpreting as interaction, Wadensjö (1998) found that interpreting consists of both translation and coordination. While the translation side of the process is tightly connected to how the interpreter renders utterances in another language, the coordination aspect relates to how utterances are managed in the interaction. In interaction, we use a range of communicative resources, e.g., gaze, bodily position, gesture and more, to create meaning and to organize the interaction. However, when one or more participants are not physically present, as is the case in video-mediated environments, this affects the ways in which these various communicative resources can be used. In video-remote interpreting (VRI) in particular, the interpreter (in the remote position) does not have the same access to the other participants’ resources in interaction, due to the technological conditions, such as delay in transfer of sound and image and limited camera scope and cannot use multimodal resources as efficiently as in face-to-face interpreting. This may challenge both the coordination and the translation side of the interpreter’s interactional work. Based on our empirical research on VRI, we describe some of the characteristics of VRI, some challenges that might occur in interaction and what interpreter trainers need to know in order to prepare interpreting students for VRI in professional practice.

Description:This 3-hour workshop focuses on note taking theory and practice for medical interpreters. We will start with the basics and move beyond to help interpreters begin to develop their own system that fits their context and needs. Participants will become familiar with the principles of notetaking and learn about helpful symbols for the healthcare context. Next, we will work on applying this knowledge through exercises and guided work. Interpreters will work on developing a list of their own symbols and abbreviations, as well as an overall note taking strategy. Finally, we will practice in small groups and in front of all with healthcare-based dialogues. Before the end of the workshop, all participants will prepare a plan for further practice and study.

A medical history record is a medical-legal document and the main source of information for a healthcare provider, it is very important that we become a conduit and not a “broken filter” of the information the patient gives the provider.
During this 2-hour *recorded* webinar, participants will become familiar with the general medical history record, its parts and the terminology of each in both languages, as well as items related to child and adult illnesses.
This 2-hour *recorded* webinar is designed for English/Spanish interpreters. This class is taught in Spanish with examples in English. English/Spanish interpreters of all levels are welcome.

Description:While the interpreting profession has had indigenous language interpreters for many years, these individuals often have had few options for training and development to succeed in the profession. At times, the professionals who work in community and healthcare settings have unrealistic expectations for the indigenous interpreter making it more difficult for them to be successful. Two barriers that interpreters have to overcome are lack of equivalencies of westernized terms and concepts that are not found in their mother tongue and difficulties in working with other interpreters when called on to perform relay interpreting. Very often neither the indigenous interpreter nor the healthcare interpreter have had training on performing relay interpreting in consecutive or simultaneous. This presentation will aid in presenting and discussing possible new approaches and solutions to overcome these barriers.

Description:Language proficiency (LP) is the bedrock of the interpreter profession on which the interpreting knowledge and skills develop. In the past couple of decades, the majority of resources and efforts in our field focused on defining and assessing the professional interpreting knowledge and skills, taking LP more or less for granted. It is time for a national consensus on the Language Proficiency for Interpreters (LPI). Without such a consensus, we cannot be equitable and inclusive within our profession. In 2022, CCHI convened the National Task Force on LPI, held several focus group meetings and conducted a national survey on LPI. This presentation will summarize the results of these efforts, define approaches to establishing LPI for different languages, the emerging LPI standards, and the implications for interpreters, managers/recruiters, trainers, and certification across interpreting settings.

Description:Culture and language go hand in hand like chips and salsa or PB&J. Therefore, during a medical encounter we have a Spanish-speaking patient (and Latino culture) and an English-speaking provider (and Anglo culture). These differences play an important role during a medical encounter and can cause misunderstandings and, in the worst case scenario, even death. As medical interpreters, we need to be aware of these differences in order to understand if, when, and how to intervene.

During this 2-hour *recorded* webinar, participants will become familiar with the main differences between the Anglo and Latino culture, how it affects the medical encounter, and understand if, when, and how to intervene.

Description:The internet offers a wealth of resources for interpreters who need to find the best way(s) to convert a particular word or message from one language to another. In addition to medical and general glossaries and dictionaries, there are search engines that are often optimized for different languages and regions of the world.

Remote telephonic and video interpreters, who often work from a desk with an internet connection at hand, may be able to look up difficult phrases in "real time" while listening and interpreting. In-person interpreters will frequently remember a message that caused them some difficulty, and can take a few moments afterward to research how they might have interpreted it better.

While many of us think that we know how to look something up on the web, there is always more to learn. This lesson will introduce several "tips and tricks" that can help you maximize the effectiveness of your internet research to help solve tricky interpreting problems.

Description:Language professionals working in healthcare, with refugees, child protective services, victims of torture, human trafficking and abuse, most likely experienced high levels of stress, suffered vicarious trauma, or felt vulnerable during their everyday work. Vicarious trauma has been identified as something that affects the performance and wellbeing of language professionals by them experiencing or internalizing someone else’s trauma. Research has confirmed that language professionals are vulnerable to vicarious trauma, burnout, compassion fatigue, or secondary stress because of repeatedly working with traumatic information. Not only do interpreters witness the trauma, but they end up channeling it during the interpreting process, and this can further affect their perceptions of the world around them and result in anxiety, depression, and other serious health issues.
Participants will be provided with real-life application and tools that can help identify and examine triggers leading to vicarious trauma impacting the wellbeing and performance of language professionals, as well as learn practical steps to prevent and mitigate the effects of vicarious trauma.

Description:Whether you are looking to take CCHI ETOE™ (English-to-English) interpreting exam or simply would like to flex your interpreting muscles, this course is for you! It is highly interactive, with many practice activities, so be ready to get a mental workout!

The ability to paraphrase is essential for interpreters to master to be able to successfully convey a message in its entirety, including the intended meaning and all its nuances. Indeed, when taking the ETOE™ (English-to-English) interpreting exam, test takers need to demonstrate the ability to comprehend an oral message in English and then accurately restate it in their own words – without changing the message, and adding or omitting information.

This presentation will introduce you to the concrete sub-skills involved in paraphrasing and you will have an opportunity to engage in guided practice of the sub-skills – such as coming up with synonyms, or changing the sentence structure, and see sample answers.

Description:Introduction to human genetics: timeline of human scientific knowledge, cell structure, DNA structure, mitosis, meiosis, mutations.

Medical Genetics for Medical Interpreters comprises four modules of online training, fully narrated and illustrated.
Module I
• Relevance of genetics to interpreting
• Fundamental biological science of human genetics

Module I prepares the learner to understand basic normal human genetics, and familiarizes her with the beginning terminology of genetics.
Subsequent modules address medical genetics, which involves pathology, testing, prevention, ethics, and treatment. These other modules are presently being developed and will be available soon.
This set of four modules is a knowledge-based class, not a practice-based class, with the exception that we provide a fleshed-out glossary template with instructions on how to personalize and maintain this glossary for lifetime use.
We provide a reflective self-assessment for the learner, to gauge her readiness to interpret in genetics. This is a detailed assessment and should prove valuable to each learner to highlight areas of technical expertise that she is weak on.
We include many short quizzes throughout the module in order to catch any lack of understanding before moving on. This not only engages the learner, but serves to re-enforce the need to pay close attention to the details of this demanding topic.
At the end of the module we present a detailed quiz that covers all of the major concepts once more.
The module is richly illustrated with technical diagrams that assist the learner in understanding the content.

Description:Self-care is a concept that has existed for hundreds of years, but it was not clearly defined until the last 20th century. Research shows that self-care improves physical and mental health. Even small amounts of self-care can make a big difference in emotional, psychological, and social well-being.

Self-care is often talked about in terms of specific actions one can take to improve their well-being. These action items often include activities like exercising regularly, eating healthy, getting adequate sleep, relaxing, practicing gratitude, and more.

This workshop is designed to focus on how techniques used in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) can be used to enhance self-care practices. Specifically, how these techniques can be used to recognize distorted thoughts and the emotions these thoughts produce. Furthermore, the principles of CBT, ACT, and DBT can be implemented to increase mindfulness, observing and accepting emotions, performing cognitive restructuring and much more. Medical interpreters will learn about these strategies and how to incorporate them into their self-care practice.

Description:This healthcare interpreting class helps professionals overcome challenges in the use of medical terminology.

A knowledge of specialized vocabulary is critical to interpreters in any venue, and few venues have more specialized vocabulary than health care. Whether they are a novice interpreter just starting out or an experienced interpreter shifting to work in the healthcare field, this class will help the participant feel more at home in healthcare settings, be more accurate in their interpreting, and have a strategy for dealing with terminology that they don’t know.

This 8-hour class will cover the following:

- The Latin and Greek basis of medical terminology
- Critical English vocabulary of: the circulatory system - the digestive system - the respiratory system - the male and female reproductive systems - the endocrine system - the musculoskeletal system
- Terminology related to tests, procedures and symptoms
- Common acronyms in health care
- A personal system to expand your bilingual medical vocabulary over time

This workshop will be conducted in English, with opportunities and resources available to build equivalent vocabulary in a non-English target language.

With this training, the participants get Medical Terminology for Interpreters, 4th edition.

This class will be offered online. We ask that the participants connect from a device with a big enough screen: a computer with a webcam or a laptop (no phone or Ipad/tablet).

Description:Cancer care can be a complex process involving multidisciplinary teams and a variety of diagnostic procedures and treatment options. When interpreting in cancer care, interpreters may encounter highly specialized vocabulary, explanations of complex concepts and procedures, not to mention difficult-to-pronounce medication names. Communication between a cancer care team and a LEP patient may be further complicated by cultural differences in understanding what cancer is and in expectations of what happens when a patient is diagnosed with cancer. Interpreters need to be aware of the language they might encounter in cancer care appointments so that they can interpret accurately and completely.

Description:Now, more than ever, interpreters are in high demand to work in med-legal assignments. Most of these involve worker’s compensation cases due to accidents, injuries and health related issues in worksites. Injury cases tend to be, by far, the most popular and are the ones that at some point will definitely end up with a QME (Qualified Medical Evaluator), AME (Agreed Medical Evaluator), or with some other type of state med-legal neutral doctor. Therefore, interpreters must possess a deep knowledge of the terminology related to the field of Orthopedics. In this three-hour webinar, we will see terminology related to the field of orthopedics. The instructor will cover some initial introductory definitions, the most common orthopedic procedures, and the most important anatomical terms related to musculoskeletal functions, injuries, and diseases.

Presenter:Andrea Henry, CMI
Description:Improving Clinical Outcomes for Patients and Enhancing Our Perceived Value as Interpreters: This workshop explores practices in our field that inhibit sophisticated decision-making by the interpreter. The presenter will encourage interpreters to look at gaps in current practice, dogmatic thinking, and the "That's not ethical!” argument (i.e. rigid thinking by some interpreters regarding our code of ethics.) The presenter will encourage discussion regarding being purely a “message converter” (e.g. a verbal version of Google Translate) versus practitioner-style interpreting (Robyn Dean & Robert Pollard). The trainer will share strategies such as educational scripting, teach-back, visual aids, addressing sophisticated language and jargon barriers, and interpreter "visibility” to enhance comprehension, trust, and the clinical outcome. The presenter will argue that these fit within our code of ethics and are well- aligned with clinical goals. The presenter will explore how these strategies can enhance patient outcomes and have the potential to increase the value that others associate with our work. She will argue that it is this prospect of becoming more "visible", more relatable, and more integrated into the medical team’s goal for the patient that could be key factors in how vital our work is perceived to be in years to come.

Their primary role is to apply their skills to support direct communication and the communicative autonomy of speakers, keeping their own biases and perspectives out of the conversation. Through discussions of actual cases, interpreters will reflect about situations that posed ethics related challenges, and utilize strategies to operationalize ethical interventions when facing a barrier to communication. Through critical thinking, ethical decision-making and intervention scripts, interpreters will gain concrete tools to support the speaker's ability to be in control of their own communication. Attendees will participate in a discussion led by moderators and will reflect on possible approaches that may be effective in future similar situations.

There are numerous learning and professional development opportunities for both interpreters and translators – from webinars to self-paced online courses. This webinar will suggest to the participants ideas for another way of learning– using books, podcasts, and TV shows to enhance their knowledge of medical terminology and medicine in general. While TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy may be medically inaccurate, a single scene may contain dozens of medical terms, presented in context, and tied to dramatic plotlines. Podcasts related to medical topics, aimed at the public, are great sources of information presented in an entertaining manner. Books written by doctors or medical journalists contain medical knowledge and terminology in the context of case stories, which are likely to be more memorable than dry academic texts. Participants will learn how to effectively use unconventional resources to learn medical terminology – and share their favorite resources with peers!

Description:From webinars to self-paced online courses to medical textbooks, there are any number of traditional ways for medical interpreters and translators to enhance their knowledge of medicine and terminology. But what about something a little less traditional and a lot more fun? Presenter Yuliya Speroff is ready to show you how to use popular books, podcasts, and TV shows to increase your medical vocabulary and understanding of medical concepts!

True, TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy may not be as accurate as a medical textbook, but a single scene can contain dozens of medical terms presented in context and tied to dramatic plotlines you will likely remember long after you put the textbook back on the shelf. Podcasts covering medical topics and aimed at the general public are also designed to teach while entertaining. And books written by physicians or medical journalists often explain concepts and terminology within the context of case studies, bringing medicine to life in ways you’re unlikely to forget.

Why not let learning be fun and productive? Attend this webinar to find out how to use these popular and convenient resources to expand your medical knowledge!

Podcasts related to medical topics are also great examples of edutainment. Participants will learn how to effectively use unconventional resources to learn medical terminology – and share their favorite resources with peers!

Description:Human trafficking is a 150-billion-dollar industry with 40.3 million victims globally, and it’s growing. A covert yet pervasive threat, it is crucial for professionals on the frontline to be adept at recognizing signs of human trafficking and, just as importantly, know how to respond.
Join us for a pivotal panel discussion aimed to equip frontline professionals including interpreters, social workers, educators and healthcare workers with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively identify and respond to suspected trafficking, and potentially saving a life.
Panelists Kimberly Williams, Director of the Houston Area Human Trafficking Healthcare Consortium and the PATH Collaborative, Kathy Givens, prominent advocate and Co-Founder of Twelve 11 Partners, and Sara Breuer, Collaboration Manager at United Against Human Trafficking, bring their expertise to bear with straightforward, practical counsel drawn from many years of experience fighting the trade and supporting survivors.
Moderated by Ludmila Golovine, member of the Texas Human Trafficking Prevention Taskforce, the panel will discuss how trafficking occurs, clear up misconceptions about the signs of human trafficking, investigate what various frontline professionals can do when faced with it on the job, and identify resources that are available for victims, survivors and those who work with them.

Description:Cancer care can be a complex process involving multidisciplinary teams and a variety of diagnostic procedures and treatment options. When interpreting in cancer care, interpreters will encounter highly specialized vocabulary, explanations of complex concepts and procedures, and difficult-to-pronounce medications. Communication between a cancer care team and an LEP patient may be further complicated by cultural differences and by expectations of what happens when a patient is diagnosed. Interpreters must be aware of the language they may encounter in cancer care appointments and the challenges specific to interpreting in oncology settings.

By completing this course, interpreters will gain an understanding of cancer as a group of diseases, including its symptomatology and typology. Interpreters will also improve their understanding of diagnostic methods, common treatments, and their side effects, interpreting challenges common to cancer care as well as strategies for overcoming these challenges. In addition, participants will take part in practice exercises which will allow them to practice and incorporate their new knowledge.
The course is based on the National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society websites as well as other research sources cited in the Reference section, as well as the trainer's interpreting experience. Cindy Roat and medical providers at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance peer-reviewed the materials.

Description:Imaging tests are a way healthcare providers can see what is going on inside your body. These tests send forms of energy (x-rays, sound waves, radioactive particles, or magnetic fields) through your body and then, changes in energy patterns made by body tissues create an image or picture. These pictures can show normal body structures and functions as well as abnormal ones caused by different diseases.

During this *2-hour recorded webinar*, attendees will become familiar with X-rays, Computer tomography (CT) scans, fluoroscopy, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans, ultrasound, and mammogram. We will focus on their mechanism, indications, and risks and benefits.

These abrupt changes stressed us mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and, undoubtedly, changed many aspects of how we engage with life. Many of these changes are here to stay post-COVID.

Please join us on July 29th to explore the perils but also the pearls, of living online, including how these changes may have affected us on both cellular (physical) and subconscious (emotional) levels. Ludmila Golovine, CEO of MasterWord Services, will host a discussion with Dr. Alejandro Chaoul, the Huffington Foundation Endowed Director and Founder of The Jung Center’s Mind Body Spirit Institute, Dr. Eve Ekman, one of the World’s leading contemplative social scientists and creator of the Atlas of Emotions at the request of the Dalai Lama, and Dr. Elissa Epel, a psychology researcher and New York times best selling author, who with her colleague (Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, nobel laureate) discovered telomerase and telomeres’ role in the aging process and ways to protect telomeres, slow disease and improve life.

These amazing speakers will discuss ways to mitigate the effects of the stressors of the digital world and teach us how to be more resilient and flourish as we move forward.

Description:Many interpreters work in both the medical and legal. court fields. Having a sound understanding of nationally accepted codes of ethics for each field is very important to ensure interpreters behave appropriately and navigate assertively the line between both fields. This workshop will review both codes of ethics and provide a more in-depth analysis through realistic scenarios, group activities and open discussion. Both presenters are certified in healthcare and court interpreting and will share their extensive experience with the audience.

Presenter:Nanyi Mateo
Description:Even when faced with identical ethical dilemmas or scenarios, interpreters’ ethical decision-making choices may vary significantly. Several factors, including work experience, personality traits, and ethical knowledge, may contribute to this. Kohlberg’s Theory of Moral Development is one way to explain this variety of ethical choices. According to this theory, moral reasoning progresses from childhood to adulthood through a series of increasingly complex levels and stages. This theory can offer a framework for describing the rationale behind interpreters' decisions and evaluating the depth of our own ethical reasoning.

During this webinar, we will use Kohlberg's Theory of Moral Development in conjunction with medical interpreters’ Codes of Ethics & Standards of Practice to help interpreters gain a better understanding of why medical interpreters make ethical decisions, as well as develop the cognitive flexibility to practice ethical decision-making and solve common ethical dilemmas from a variety of moral perspectives.

The webinar is delivered live on Zoom or can be watched as a recording. The live sessions are expected to take place every 2 months. Students will need to spend 4 hours
watching/attending the presentation and participating in the practice activities. In order to obtain a certificate of completion, the student must complete and pass a quiz with a grade of at least 70%.

Throughout the process of assessment and eligibility for special education, it is imperative that interpretation is accurate, unbiased, and complete to ensure that standardized tests provide a valid and true picture of a student’s abilities, strengths, and areas of concern.

This presentation will provide interpreters with an overview of common psychoeducational and speech pathology assessments used in the educational setting, the implications of working with an untrained educational interpreter, and questions that the interpreter should ask during pre-consultation meetings. The presentation will also include resources to prepare for this type of interpreting assignment and a glossary of terms commonly used in the special education evaluation process.

The urge to help is natural for interpreters, drawn to the profession by a desire to facilitate communication among people. By recognizing and acknowledging this urge and the motivations behind it, as well as the crucial reasons why advocacy falls outside the purview of our profession, we equip ourselves with the tools necessary to remain true to our mandate of neutrality and impartiality. The presenters will emphasize the importance of interpreter neutrality and provide practical tips to avoid and resist the temptation to venture outside the scope of interpretation.

Description:The Interpretive Services department is going to be providing a monthly terminology course for its team. During each month, we are going to focus on a medical specialty. There will be readings, videos, games, and quizzes for the interpreters to immerse themselves in that particular specialty. A draft glossary will be provided at the beginning of each month. Participants will have to add/ remove/ comment on the glossary as they complete their work. Ultimately, the department will take all those suggestions to create a final glossary that will be printed out for our interpreters and for our clinics. Participants will be able to work at their own pace. It is expected that they will need about 5 hours of work per month to complete the requirements. This project is going to be spread in 3 years. We are currently requesting CEU approval for 6months (5hours/ CEU per month, so 30 hours/ CEU).

Description:Protocols for healthcare interpreting were originally written with the idea that the interpreter would be present in the room with the provider or medical team and the patient or patient and family. However, interpreting remotely via telephone and video has become a greater part of the job, if not the entire job, for many healthcare interpreters. Providing interpreter services from a distance presents unique challenges. The goal of this session is to review interpreting protocols that have been adapted from in-person settings to working remotely, including what interpreters do at the beginning, during, and at the close of an encounter and to consider and propose better practices for supporting communication between patients and providers.

Description:Forensic evaluations help document medical and psychological trauma for people seeking asylum in the US. Clients recount very traumatic histories during these evaluations. Therefore, these encounters require a high degree of sensitivity for clients who are survivors of trauma and torture. You will understand how clinicians and interpreters are trained on best practices, including the importance of informed consent discussions and trauma informed strategies that minimize re-traumatization of the client and secondary trauma to the healthcare team during these evaluations. The lessons learned in trauma informed care can be applied to other settings where interpreters work with highly traumatized clients.

Description:Did you know that mental health providers analyze patient language to reach a diagnosis? For example, disorganized speech may be an indicator of psychosis. If an interpreter cleans up disorganized speech, they are editing out crucial data that is needed to reach an accurate diagnosis. On December 4th, we will discuss why interpreters cannot simply relay what a mental health patient says. To provide a truly accurate interpretation, professionals must also relay how it is said. In one hour, deepen your understanding of how mental health providers extract data from their patient’s speech, and how you can be a more effective interpreter.

Description:Interpreters often find themselves conflicted when making ethical decisions during interpreting encounters. Either they find it difficult to find guidance on how to proceed or feel like they are “breaking the rules” when they engage in actions not clearly illustrated in their code of ethics or standards of practice. This course will prepare interpreters to feel more confident when making ethical decisions. The first portion of the webinar will explore the main elements of a code of ethics and their purpose. The presenter will go over core values and guiding principles, which are the main components of the code of ethics. The audience will learn the difference between a code of conduct and a code of ethics. Participants will also learn how standards of practice supplement a code of ethics. In the second portion of the webinar, attendees will learn about critical thinking and how to develop this vital skill. The presenter will provide specific exercises interpreters can use to develop their critical thinking skills outside the interpreting encounter. Additionally, attendees will learn how to apply critical thinking skills to make value-based decisions in the interpreting encounter. The presentation also includes scenarios that will illustrate essential concepts to allow students to use some skills they will learn during the webinar.

More specifically, it examines both the benefits and the challenges of remote interpreting in speech, physical, and occupational therapy settings. It considers how different remote communication platforms may impact role boundaries and turn-taking from both the provider’s and the interpreter’s perspective. With the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, in the United States, language access was provided through remote telecommunication platforms, audio and/or video. Many of these platforms were not optimized nor designed for interpreting support. Service providers, interpreters, and their Limited English Proficient (LEP) clients, were faced with increased communication and logistical challenges and had to get creative in their endeavors in order to ensure minimal disruption and continuity of care and service provision.

Description:Language justice is defined as “an evolving framework based on the notion of respecting every individual’s fundamental language rights—to be able to communicate, understand, and be understood in the language in which they prefer and feel most articulate and powerful. Rejecting the notion of the supremacy of one language, it recognizes that language can be a tool of oppression, and as well as an important part of exercising autonomy and of advancing racial and social justice.” (Payton et al., 2020)

There are many groups who play a role in promoting language justice in the health care setting. How do we as interpreters work together with other members of our community, from patients to providers to legislators, who are also interested in language justice? How can we determine which strategies are most effective and where to make adjustments? In this course the instructor will share experiences with researching language justice and facilitate a conversation about future directions of research in the years to come.

Description:Professionals in the "helping professions" find themselves on the front lines of support during crises at individual, community, national, and international levels. These dedicated individuals encompass a diverse range of roles, including first responders, therapists, social workers, healthcare providers, educators, religious leaders, and anyone else who offers assistance during or after traumatic events. Working in such roles inherently exposes these helpers to traumatic situations. They must listen, witness, and often directly experience trauma alongside those they aid. This not only places them in a position of immense importance for those in need but also increases their own vulnerability to the effects of the trauma they encounter. This webinar aims to explore the impact of trauma on helpers, posing essential questions such as: What occurs when a helper experiences primary or secondary trauma? How does a helper's own traumatic experiences affect their ability to offer aid, and what are the implications for the individuals they assist? How does a helper handle their own unresolved trauma when triggered during the act of helping? Additionally, the webinar will investigate strategies to mitigate the effects of trauma exposure, drawing from fields like Interpersonal Neurobiology and Polyvagal Theory, ultimately enabling helpers to continue thriving in their crucial roles.

And while you may not have the resources or the necessary data to narrow down your target audience, you can still identify who they are by formulating what’s known as a customer avatar. Customer avatars have an intentional purpose: to promote your services to the right people. This exercise is uniquely powerful for interpreters.

Description:Community interpreters are still adjusting to the rise in remote interpreting caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals who were satisfied with their in-person interpreting assignments have had to adapt to the demands of an increasingly virtual world. Change is hard and adapting to a new interpreting reality is no exception.

Furthermore, numerous community interpreters have had to make the transition to routine remote interpreting with limited understanding of how to serve their clients and retain the interpersonal connection created through in-person interpreting. This webinar will explore how individual interpreters can incorporate interpersonal elements of in-person interpreting in their new virtual or hybrid reality.

Change is not easy. Join us to learn how you can advocate for yourself and the profession, improve overall job satisfaction, and increase career longevity.

Description:We are always communicating, even when we are not speaking. How we dress, how we stand, our gestures, facial expressions, our tone of voice all speak for us. Nonverbal communication can emphasize or contradict what we are saying, or it can replace speech. This class brings awareness to nonverbal communication and how it affects our interpreting. In conversations, nonverbal communication is used to manage the flow through nonverbal cues. Interpreters who are able to read nonverbal communication can deliver a more comprehensive message. Interpreters should also be aware of their own nonverbal communication so as not to distract from the interpreting encounter. The class provides an overview of nonverbal communication and provides techniques to improve self-awareness of nonverbal communication.

Description:The medical and legal systems are specialized cultures with their technical language, procedures, and sometimes mystifying ways of making decisions. Both the courts and the hospitals can be, at times, unfamiliar, irritating, and confusing even to the average person growing up in this culture.
The unique demands these settings make upon interpreters have led to procedures for curricula of specialized certification for medical and legal interpreters. But sometimes, the medical and legal arenas overlap, particularly in mental health and substance abuse.
The purpose of this session is to help to clarify some of these medical-legal situations, particularly the involuntary commitment of people with alcohol and drug programs to detox and rehab facilities and the involuntary commitment of mentally ill individuals to psychiatric hospitals. Even if interpreters do not always internally agree with the decisions made in these forums, it is essential to understand and appreciate the unique logic of the medical and legal systems and their intersection. In the medical-legal arena, the government's power is used to enforce decisions that, at times, the patients disagree with and, at times, the family disagrees with. Patients may be angry with the family's ability to control them through the state's power. And similarly, families can sometimes be frustrated about the limits to which the state will intervene to promote what the family sees as their loved one's well-being. Interpreting in these situations involves the usual technical challenges and the ability to deal with one's own emotions and not be vicariously triggered by the families and patients upsets.

Description:Without a doubt, one of the most feared interpreting modalities for many interpreters is the simultaneous mode. Juggling two languages at the same time may be intimidating and frustrating for those lacking adequate training, practice, and experience.

Contrary to what we’ve been told, interpreters are often required to implement whispered-simultaneous interpreting during different medical encounters, such as family meetings, patient education sessions, group therapies, and side conversations.

Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned pro, the challenging exercises presented in this course will help develop techniques and strategies to deliver smoother and more intelligible interpretations. You will also expand your vocabulary with regard to colloquial terms, medical jargon, and the day-to- expressions used in the healthcare field.

Description:Simultaneous interpreting in healthcare can be an effective practice choice for language-discordant families and prolonged teaching sessions.

That being said, healthcare interpreters are often taught, or they extrapolate from their training, that simultaneous interpretation (simul) is exclusivley used in encounters where there is a prolonged emotional utterance which compromises the interpreter’s performance. In other words, when the interpreter is not given enough pauses to render an accurate consecutive interpretation (consec) during dialogue, they are then provoked into spontaneously changing their practice from consec to simul. The presenter will argue in favor of re-evaluating our field’s de facto position on this and encourage the use of simul in other dynamics, as well. She will argue that simul can be an effective practice when the interpreter has the opportunity to be more deliberate in planning for it. The presenter will explore when and why we might choose to employ simul (and/or "simulsecutive," a combination of simul and consec) and how to negotiate its use with the other parties. She will explore its potential in certain settings to result in effective interpreter performance and accuracy, especially with language-discordant families (e.g., English-speaking patient and LEP caregiver) and prolonged unilateral teaching sessions (CPR, extensive home care teaching, etc.) The presenter will ultimately share the limitations of short-term memory in complex consec and how to improve both consec and simul performance by understanding the role that long term memory plays with retention and recall.

Description:Spanish has evolved over hundreds of years across many continents. Hence, many variations and “dialects” of the Spanish language have emerged and are in use across the globe. Although there is such a thing as a “Standardize” version of the language (sometimes called Standard, Universal, Neutral, Global, etc.), this version uses more generic terminology and avoids the use of colloquial and more informal phrases that vary from country to country.
Mastering each region’s slang can become a monumental task for interpreters and translators. Therefore, we have embarked on the task of developing a slang series that will systematically cover the words and phrases that are regarded as very informal and more commonly used in speech for most of the Spanish speaking countries in the Americas.

Description:ChatGPT has taken the world by storm and newspapers are full of predictions that interpreters will lose their jobs in the near future. But what does machine interpreting actually mean for interpreters? Will it put us out of work or will it create work? Will it turn us all into interpreting post-editors or is there a future where our work is still as creative as it is now?

Based on the book, Interpreters vs Machines: Can Interpreters Survive in an AI-Dominated World? and with updates to reflect recent changes, this webinar will cover many possible futures for human interpreting and what it might take for them to become true. It will also delve into how the threat and opportunities of machine interpreting have revealed some uncomfortable truths about how we talk about, market, and understand our own work and the changes we will need to make to survive in any future where machine interpreting exists.

Description:Medical interpreters are required to interpret everything that is said during a medical encounter. To accomplish this, interpreters need to manage the flow of conversation efficiently. They also need to discern when it is appropriate to mediate and when to stay in their interpreting role. Ideally, healthcare interpreters should mediate only when necessary and do so briefly. However, mediation is not an easy skill to master.

Over time, professional medical interpreters with an advanced skill set can perform a strategic mediation confidently and skillfully. They follow criteria that helps them know if a strategic mediation is necessary. When they do need to mediate, they keep the mediation brief and resume interpreting immediately. Performing a strategic mediation efficiently preserves the communicative autonomy of each party in the session.

Developing advanced strategic mediation skills will improve the quality of your interpretation. You will be able to mediate without interrupting the speaker’s train of thought and without drawing attention to yourself. You will be able to ask for what you need to do your job succinctly, without apologizing for it. Strategic mediation is a skill you can use during every encounter. Enhancing this skillset will make a significant difference in each interpreting assignment.

Description:"Strategic mediation is a basic skill all interpreters need to do their jobs, yet it is surprisingly difficult to do so concisely without practice. Even experienced interpreters may stumble through mediations if they don’t have mental scripts prepared for the situation.

The purpose of this workshop is to instill confidence in medical interpreters to mediate effectively. They will learn why it is essential to mediate as a part of their job. At the same time, they will be given examples of how and why to limit strategic mediation in certain instances.

Medical interpreters should feel confident they have the knowledge they need to effectively mediate after this workshop. They will likely feel more confident and professional the next time they need to intervene in a medical encounter. "

Although the codes of ethics and standards of practice that guide and direct our practice advise us to "[disclose] skill limitations with respect to particular assignments" and to "accurately represent [our]... training and pertinent experience," stakeholder expectations and market needs have forced many of us to attempt simultaneous interpreting using our instinct and consecutive skills to guide our practice.

This means interpreting vulgar or profane language and respect the content and spirit of the message. Having a clear understanding of the different ways to express profanity in both English and Spanish is crucial to ensure the interpreter can find the appropriate translation based on the context in which it was expressed. This presentation will review the standards of practice for accuracy, as well as the linguistic and cultural challenges of interpreting profanity, including examples and terminology specific to the US, Mexico and Guatemala.
