"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."

This workshop is worth .5 CEUs in professional studies.

Requests for accommodations must be emailed to by Friday, May 7th.
