Interpreting in Palliative Care
Online training for continuing education for interpreters in health care
This workshop is taught online with live instruction and it provides 8 hours of continuing education by CCHI CAEP (including 2 performance-based CEUs)
If you are a CMI, CCHI Continuing Education Hours are accepted by the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters
This seven-hour workshop is designed to help interpreters learn more about palliative care as a field and apply their knowledge and skills about interpreting to these difficult conversations. At the same time, Lesson 2 on Interpreting Skills in Palliative Care can also serve as an opportunity to reinforce basic interpreting skills with participants who may need a review. Overall, there are four major messages for students to take home.
- 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.
