Course Description

How can we respond to some of the dilemmas which arise on a day-to-day basis in the medical domain? ? When working with such a wide variety of clients, what issues might arise?

In the webinar we will be looking at some of the areas in which we can develop our knowledge and understanding to help us provide a better service. We will look at things such as anatomy and physiology, medical terminology and jargon, clients’ attitudes and expectations of interpreters and how we can deal with these in a sensitive and effective manner.

We will also look at some of the practical, ethical and moral issues related to medical interpreting. Things such as ensuring the message is interpreted clearly, confidentiality, giving consent to procedures, interpreter v advocate, and how these can impact on our work.


Completion of this course will give you a minimum of 2 hours' structured CPD points. You will also be provided with a number of resources for you to gain further unstructured CPD points. 

This course is available for 90 days from the date you purchased it.
