Although established ethical and professional codes of conduct for legal and medical interpretation have similar standards of responsibility and trust, there exist practical differences in their underlying values.
Interpreters who work across sectors need to make sure they understand the rules and code of ethics for each sector before taking work. Current codes of ethics and practice for medical and legal Interpreting are setting specific and may not fully apply to quasi-legal and quasi-medical settings in which some hybrid of the two standards lives. Some behaviors permitted in one setting are not permitted in others.
Participants will be introduced to a 5-step decision-making model they can use to construct solutions for ethical dilemmas and gain a new understanding of in-situ applications of the codes of ethics applicable to interpreting in healthcare and legal settings.
This presentation will review established codes of ethics across legal and medical sectors and present theoretical and practical frameworks from which to study, analyze and resolve ethical decisions in the interpreting world.
