LiNKS Sign Language & Interpreting Services and REACH-reaching diversity
will hold a 40-hour healthcare workshop for interpreters who work in
healthcare. The 5-day training will meet the minimum requirements for
Interpreters who seek Certification as a Medical Interpreter.
Southern Californias diversity gives the region its rich cultural
environment and the need for individuals who can speak several
languages. Especially in health care, patients and medical personnel
need interpreters who can orally transfer a message from one spoken
language into another. To assure that all patients receive the care they
need, receiving services from a certified interpreter is essential.
The Connection World Training for Healthcare Interpreters will be held
in five one-day sessions on June 9, 10, 23, 24 and 30th from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Goodwill SOLACs main office at 800 W. Pacific Coast
Hwy, Long Beach, CA 90806.
Chuck Scarpaci, Director of LiNKS Sign Language & Interpreting Services,
said, Hosting this workshop is an extension of our services.
Interpreting is the conversion of meaning from one language to another
language, not necessarily word for word. Words do not have meaning,
meaning has words, said Scarpaci.
Presented by Rosanna Balistreri, MA, the training includes an
introduction to the California Healthcare Interpreting Associations
Standards for Healthcare Interpreters, an overview of ethical
principles, standardized interpreting protocols, roles interventions,
and an ethical decision making process is provided. The training also
includes interpreting practice and case studies. In addition, medical
terminology is woven into practice activities each day of the training.
