Join us for CCHI’s first webinar for Russian medical interpreters!

Some areas of health care are especially challenging to interpreters due to both density of highly specialized terminology and cultural differences in approaching related conditions and treatments. Additionally, interpreting for either pediatric or geriatric patients requires adjustment of regular interpreting techniques to ensure better communication between patients and providers. This presentation focuses on the medical concepts, terminology and protocols/procedures related to joint replacement, including peri-operative patient education, surgery and post-operative rehabilitation, with the attention to the fact that mostly geriatric patients undergo such procedures.
