FINDING THE PARALLELS: INTERPRETING IN MEDICAL AND JUDICIAL SETTINGS

CEUs: ATA, IMIA, NAJIT, Fl State Courts

16 18 August 2013

This conference will focus on the reasons for Language Access, consequences of lack of compliance and remedies. It will empower legal and medical personnel to understand the extent of their role in the Language Access equation. It will empower interpreters to better understand their partnership with legal and health care providers within the scope of Language Access.
In the wide variety of conferences offered language professionals few bring together stakeholders from different segments and facets of a single purpose to discuss why their interaction is paramount for the quality of their services. This is our goal, and in the process we will discuss other aspects of this three-pronged partnership aiming at strengthening our ties so we can, together, implement solutions that will reduce liability, increase ROI, ensure compliance and add value to services we provide to individuals of Limited English Proficiency.
