Medical Interpreting: Anatomy of an Appointment

SKU#: 71
0.3 CEUs PS

What you will learn This training will present a basic primer for body systems and anatomy, which will then be applied to a brief, generalized walk-through of a Doctor Appointment. Knowing general anatomy, the processes and ailments which might occur, and where they are in relation to each other will help Interpreters better accept assignments for which they are qualified.

Some pharmacology and prescription drug basics will also be presented.  Walking through a general Doctor Appointment from start to finish will embed schema that is Deaf-centric and Linguistically appropriate and empowering to Deaf patients.  Interpreters will be able to apply the foundational Anatomy to multiple scenarios within a Doctor Appointment, while also considering the role of the Medical Interpreter in these situations, applicability of HIPAA and compliance laws, heightened awareness of the Interpreter’s qualifications prior to accepting such assignments, and creating a sense of allyship and collaboration with all parties throughout the Appointment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will list the 11 Human Organ Systems.
  • Participants will infer which Organ Systems are involved for a specific Doctor Appointment scenario, given at least 2 involved organs/anatomical regions, in 3 out of 4 scenarios.
  • Participants will formulate an alternative creative approach to working WITH all stakeholders during a Doctor Appointment, especially when the Role of the Medical Interpreter is misunderstood.
  • Participants will compare and contrast interpreting/transliterating approaches when working with linguistically diverse Deaf patients, and generate two versions of their interpretations: one more ASL and one CASE/Transliterated.
