Audiologists and SLPs who work with individuals whose primary language is not English may find themselves in a situation where they need to use an interpreter. Being prepared with a plan of action for accessing an interpreter as well as having policies and procedures for the collaboration can ensure the client/patient receives the best possible services. This webinar will describe how to develop a plan of action and offer guidelines for fostering a collaborative and culturally sensitive relationship between the clinician, client/patient, and interpreter.
You will be able to:
- conduct a needs assessment based on language and demographic trends in your practice
- develop a plan of action for accessing interpreters and developing policies and procedures for using interpreters
- describe challenges of working with interpreters in terms of cultural sensitivity and health care literacy
