CCHI brings together different stakeholders in the medical interpreting profession and industry to ensure quality in healthcare interpreting.
Join us for Community Conversation 10 on August 18, 2021 at 2:30 pm ET. It will focus on interpreter education. Registration opens soon.
CCHI accepts monetary and in-kind support from private and public organizations and individuals to pursue the administration and development of a national, valid, credible, and vendor-neutral certification program for healthcare interpreters. Thank you!
1. June is the month that many people celebrate the diversity of human gender and intimate attractions. Acceptance of new expressions of gender and sexuality has evolved greatly, and the language we use to describe ourselves is always changing as well. CCHI strives to always be on the cutting edge of everything and anything that impacts our profession as healthcare interpreters. Different languages can more easily accommodate gender-neutral terminology than others. There are many opinions, but very little data on the use and acceptance of these linguistic changes, particularly regarding their interpretation.
CCHI needs your feedback as professional healthcare interpreters. What are your opinions? How do these changes affect your work? What solutions do you use in your working language(s) when presented with these terms?
Please help us by participating in the CCHI NATIONAL SURVEY ON GENDER-NEUTRAL LANGUAGE IN HEALTHCARE INTERPRETING. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and is open to all interpreters and translators. You can choose to earn 0.25 CCHI CE points for completing the survey (the certificate is emailed to you immediately upon submission) or to participate anonymously. The survey is open until August 10, 2021.
2. Medical interpreters, like other members of the patient care team, encounter multiple instances of ethical and professional dilemmas during their day-to-day practice. CCHI is managing the Repository of Critical Incident Reports (CIRs) to offer a mechanism for sharing such instances in a systemic and public manner. We encourage all medical interpreters, managers of language services, and interpreter educators to submit CIRs for public review and consideration.
The information reported on the Disciplinary Sanctions page includes only cases where the applicant, candidate, or certificant received a publicly reportable sanction. CCHI reserves the right to change which types of sanctions are published on this page.
Individuals with suspensions and revocations are strictly prohibited from representing they are credentialed by the CCHI during the period of suspension or revocation.
