Interpreting for Chemical Dependency and Pain Management

Instructor: Judit Marin, 6 CEUs, starting time may change

Details coming soon!

The purpose of this six-hour workshop is to introduce healthcare interpreters to medical terminology specifically related to pain management and chemical dependency. We will discuss the complexity of these medical specialties and the challenges interpreters face in these appointments. Participants will receive terminology, glossaries, and samples of sentences pertaining to these two areas of care. Participants will have the opportunity to practice three modes of interpretation: sight translation, consecutive translation and simultaneous interpretation with specific vocabulary, scenarios and role plays related to pain management and chemical dependency.
