Medical Interpreter Ethics

This 3-hour workshop will cover the elements of the WA DSHS Code of Ethics. Interpreters will share stories of their own experiences in which the ethics elements came into play, and attendees will be involved in joint problem-solving. Interpreters will leave the class feeling confident that they can recognize situations involving the ethics elements and that they can successfully and gracefully respond to ethical challenges as they arise.
