What: CE Webinar #15

Mastering Simultaneous Interpreting in Healthcare Settings

When: December 27, 2018 at 3 pm ET/ 2 pm CT/ 1 pm MT/ 12 pm PT

CE hours accredited: 2  PB CE hours (CEAP ID #08883)

Cost: Free

Presenters: Natalya Mytareva, M.A., CoreCHI™


The webinar will focus on how simultaneous interpreting in healthcare settings is different than in other settings (conference, legal, educational) and requires different approaches to being successful. Healthcare interpreters may be expected to simultaneously interpret disfluent speech of a psychotic patient, or instructions of a trauma ER team, or an educational session for diabetic patients. Unlike in other settings, healthcare interpreters may need “just to repeat the words” in some cases rather than interpret the speaker’s intended meaning.

The interpreter faces not only linguistic challenges but also those related to managing the encounter and their role as a care team member. Participants will have some practice of simultaneous interpreting and be offered specific tips on how to develop and improve their subskills needed to interpret simultaneously.

The webinar is delivered in English. Webinar is accredited for 2 PB CE hours, CEAP ID #08883.
