The Process: Are They Really Letting Me Do This Unsupervised?
Interpretek is an approved RID Sponsor for Continuing Education Activities. This professional studies program is offered for 0.40 CEUs at the some Content Knowledge Level.
This workshop will break down the interpreting process from start to finish in a medical interpreting assignment. Highlight topics: assignment preparation, what to do upon arrival, specific tips and best practice for working in a doctor’s office vs a hospital setting, the art of “giving report” to the next interpreter at the hand-off, HIPAA considerations for interpreters, Universal Codes, and Informed Consent.
Lecture participants will organize a detailed, orderly plan for approaching a medical assignment, both in an office based or a medical center. Students will demonstrate understanding and differentiate between universal codes through lecture and verbal question and answer participation. They will analyze and review through open discussion the key elements of informed consent medical paperwork. Also, students will develop and implement a plan to give report to one another with specific emphasis placed on which information is HIPAA compliant and need-to-know. They will work in groups of 2-3 then report to the larger group. Participants will experiment with various real-life medical assignment scenarios, formulating proper plans for working with a deaf client in the face of many different possible situations.
