Interpreting in Palliative Care

Online self-paced 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)

Workshop/Course Description:

This eight-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.

  1. Palliative care is a distinct and rapidly expanding area of medicine with which all interpreters should be familiar.
  2. Palliative care conversations present unique challenges for interpreters that require specific knowledge and skills to overcome.
  3. 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.

Interpreting activities are available for Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese
