Interpreters, like other members of the patient care team, encounter multiple instances of ethical and professional dilemmas during their day-to-day practice. Yet, there is no established mechanism for sharing such instances in a systemic and public manner. CCHI’s Executive Director Natalya Mytareva will demonstrate how we can utilize methods used by other healthcare professionals to create and present ‘critical incidents’ for public consideration, similar to Clinical and Schwartz Rounds. Participants will learn what elements of presenting a critical incident foster a fruitful discussion and inspire identification of deficiencies in the current healthcare interpreting resources. Presenter will lead the participants in evaluating sample critical incident descriptions intended for discussion either among interpreters or among a mixed audience that includes healthcare providers. Presenter will introduce CCHI’s Critical Incidents Repository for systemic national presentation of critical incidents.
