    "As interpreters serve as a conduit for communication in healthcare settings, how interpreters respond to experiences may affect performance on the job and, ultimately, patients’ clinical experiences. During this interactive workshop, Corey will explore key stakeholder perspectives in various situations and equip interpreters with tools to provide services that are responsive to, and respectful of, Deaf clients/patients, family members and health care providers’ preferences and communication access needs.

    After the training, participants will:

    • Recognize common challenges and obstacles Deaf individuals encounter in health care settings;
    • Anticipate and react appropriately to difficult situations;
    • Be mindful of their own triggers and the effect they have on clients/patients, family members and members of the health care team; and
    • Understand and apply best practices to creative positive communication accessibility experiences for all stakeholders."

    "Interpreters in a medical setting are confronted with ethical decisions around whether they have the skills and knowledge necessary to interpret various types of communication. One of these is the pre-surgery Advance Directives Form.

    Participants will discuss ethical decision-making and situation-specific options. We will review standard level of care options, vocabulary involved and choices for how to interpret terms/concepts. Attendees will have the opportunity for hands on practice.

    We will also review the Colorado End of Life Options Act. This workshop will be presented entirely in ASL, with no English interpretation. A minimum of five years of interpreting in a professional setting is strongly recommended."
