The Medical Interpreting Kaleidoscope

 Registration is closed for this event
As interpreters serve as a conduit for communication in healthcare settings, how interpreters respond to experiences may affect performance on the job and, ultimately, patients' clinical experiences. During this interactive workshop, Corey Axelrod - 2axend's founder and CEO - will explore key stakeholder perspectives in various situations and equip interpreters with tools to provide services that are responsive to, and respectful of, Deaf clients/patients, family members, and healthcare providers' preferences and communication access needs.

Participants will:

  • recognize common challenges and obstances Deaf individuals encounter in health care settings;
  • anticipate and react appropriately to difficult situations;
  • be mindful of their own triggers and the effect they have on clients/patients, family members, and members of the healthcare team;
  • understand and apply best practices to creative positive communication accessiblity experiences for all stakeholders
