WEBINAR - GUIDE FOR CLINICIANS WORKING WITH INTERPRETERS IN HEALTHCARE SETTINGS
Wednesday 5 June 2019 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm (AEST)
Guide for clinicians working with interpreters in healthcare settings provides evidence-based recommendations for effective communication in the event of doctor-patient language discordance, specifically with regard to engaging and working with interpreters. The Guide, launched in January 2019, is based on the Competency Standards Framework for Clinicians, Culturally responsive clinical practice: Working with people from migrant and refugee backgrounds. This resource was developed through a national cross-sector collaboration and is widely endorsed by about two dozen peak professional bodies for clinicians, as well as AUSIT, ASLIA and NAATI. This resource can be viewed at https://culturaldiversityhealth.org.au/competency-standards-framework/
This webinar will provide interpreters with an overview of the Guide’s recommended approaches, which focus on: why engage an interpreter; determining interpreter need and requirements; engaging an interpreter; interpreter’s role and scope of practice; and practice points for working with interpreters in healthcare settings. While the Guide primarily targets clinicians, there are significant considerations for interpreters—the Guide establishes the role of interpreters as “non-clinical members of a healthcare team”. The webinar will provide an overview of these considerations and outline what interpreters can expect as a minimum standard of their interaction with clinicians in healthcare settings.
