    Interpreting in Cancer Genetics

    Genetics a topic that is coming up more often in more healthcare settings, from primary care to cancer care. But highly technical vocabulary and complex medical concepts can present real challenges to interpreters who are not familiar with the concepts and vocabulary related to genetics.

    This 5-hour workshop was developed by veteran interpreter trainer Cindy Roat and UCSF anthropologist Dr. Galen Joseph as part of a pioneering program at UCSF to help cancer genetic counselors communicate more effectively with their patients. This class is designed for interpreters who have already received basic training, and covers the following topics:

    • Introduction to Cancer Genetics
    • The Vocabulary of Cancer Genetics
      (bilingual glossaries will be made available in English-Spanish, English-Cantonese/Traditional Chinese, and English-Russian)
    • Practice interpreting
      (bilingual dialogues will be made available in English-Spanish, English-Cantonese, and English-Russian.)
    • Interpreting Challenges

    Who is teaching? Cindy Roat is a national consultant and trainer with 23 years’ experience in the healthcare interpreting field. With an MPH in International Health Services, Cindy has made significant contributions to the healthcare interpreting field in the areas of training, program development, policy formulation, advocacy and organizational outreach. Her written works are key resources for interpreters, providers and administrators alike. Cindy was the principal author of Bridging the Gap, and her most recent book, Healthcare Interpreting in Small Bites, is being used as an ancillary text at many basic training programs. Ms. Roat is a former Co-chair of the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC), a founding member of WASCLA, current chair of the Community Interpreter Division of NOTIS, as well as being known nationally as an energetic advocate for the field of health care interpreting and for language access in general.
