    NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents:

    Interpreting for Infant & Pregnancy Loss
    Presented by Marisa Rueda 

    NOTE: This is a recorded workshop formatted into an on-demand workshop.


    What is it about?
    Pregnancy is 
    often associated with new life. However, not all pregnancies result in the birth of a healthy child. Obstetric care accounts for a large volume of medical encounters requiring an interpreter. While routine obstetric visits may be predictable and short, medical interpreters need to be prepared to interpret for LEP patients who experience pregnancy complications and loss.

    During this session, you will learn about common causes, terminology, and standard care for infant and pregnancy loss. Additionally, you will hear stories about women who have first-hand experiences with this tragic loss of life. Their stories will provide insight on the emotional, physical, and psychological toll of experiencing this type of loss.

    Coming away from this session you will not only be more intellectually prepared, but also better equipped mentally and emotionally to interpret for patients in these encounters. You will also learn why professional interpreting services can significantly improve outcomes for LEP patients and family members in such situations. 

    Learning Objectives

    1. Identify common causes of pregnancy loss and treatment in the early, middle, and late stages of pregnancy. 
    2. Learn about standard care for patients who experience pregnancy loss during the first, second, and third trimesters. 
    3. Recognize the emotional, psychological, and physical challenges specific to pregnancy and infant loss.  
    4. Understand the role of good communication in reducing the risk of emotional and psychological pathologies after pregnancy loss. 
    5. Reflect on and/or discuss how interpreting for these losses affects medical interpreters.

    Interpreting for Well Visits

    Presented by Eliana Lobo

    Are you new to healthcare interpreting?
    Are you a conference, 
    social services or court interpreter who is interested in taking healthcare assignments?

    If so, this is the workshop for you!


    What is it about? This webshop is a two-hour workshop, covering interpreting for check-ups and well visits in the following areas of specialization: Adult Medicine and Pediatrics, often referred to as Family Medicine, and the Dental Clinic.  Topics one can expect to cover in each clinic; how to prepare in advance (terminology and concepts related to development, metrics and measurements); proper protocols before, during and after the examination will be reviewed. Resources, recommendations and best practices for interpreting in these settings will be shared. 

    Standards of Practice related to sight translation and assisting patients with forms will be looked at carefully. You will learn about a tool for quickly assessing sight translation requests (that is, weeding out requests that are appropriate from those that are not, along with practical suggestions for handling these requests. Best practice recommendations for navigating privacy issues when assisting patients with paperwork will be shared, as well as how to handle the entering of personal information on forms. The importance of the Pre-Session will be reviewed.

    Most of this presentation is devoted into delving into what distinguishes annual check-ups for both men vs women, adult vs an infant or child, and for dental appointments. What one can expect will take place during these types of well visits will be explained. With the changes brought about by the implementation of Section 1557, more and more dental practices are scheduling interpreters for their patients. A review of practices for preventative (annual check-ups) and corrective (orthodontia) dental care will be reviewed.

    This session also covers best practice for assisting patients with intake and return visit paperwork, and NCIHC recommendations for what qualifies for sight translation, and what types of documents need to be professionally translated.
    There will be practice delivering a brief, yet complete pre-session, and how to ask for repetitions and clarifications in a professional manner. Methods (formulas) and phone apps for converting from imperial to metric measures will be shared. Mathematical concepts such as median, mean, average, percentage and percentile, will be discussed in order to help attendees grasp the concepts clearly, so as to find equivalents for their language pair.
    Free links to reputable resources for glossaries, terminology, patient education material and standards of practice will be provided.

    This is a recorded workshop reformatted into an on-demand format.

      What You Need to Succeed as a Video Remote Interpreter

      Presented by Eliana Lobo

      This is a pre-recorded workshop reformatted into on-demand.

      What is it about?

      This workshop looks at best practices for remote interpreting from home. Increasingly, during the pandemic, many onsite interpreters have made this shift as independent contractors. Telehealth is booming, and despite the easy commute when one works from home, assignments have gotten tougher, as remote interpreting requests have grown in scope and increasingly are scheduled for complex encounters, during this pandemic.

      Guidelines for choosing equipment, workstation set-up and connectivity requirements, observing HIPAA, and managing clients during the session are shared. We’ll look at how to:  enhance one’s remote persona, and utilize scripts to enforce best practice (pre-session, confidentiality, transparency and managing the flow). Local and Federal law governing call center employment practices will be examined. Links will be shared for materials and exercises to assist interpreters with skills assessment and enhancement. 

      Learning Objectives:
      1) Understand how to triage requests to the appropriate modality
      2) Know how to configure your home or call center workstation for best user experience
      3) Understand the importance of continually self-assessing one’s interpreting skills; knowing where to find training materials to develop and improve that skillset

        Northwest Literary Translators Group presents

        Self-Editing for Literary Translation

        Presented by Mia Spangenberg and Kay Heikkinen

        NOTE: This is a pre-recorded workshop reformatted into on-demand.

        The Northwest Literary Translators welcome you to an online seminar about literary translators' favorite methods for editing their own work. From reading out loud to changing the color of the font, we all have strategies and tricks for forcing ourselves to see (and hear!) our text in a new light. But are there specific areas or types of text that present extra pitfalls when editing? Is there a perfect time of day for dealing with revisions? How many drafts is too many? Come to hear your colleagues' collected wisdom and share your best tips with us.

        This event will be organized into two parts. Part 1 will be brief presentations by members who have a specific set of techniques to share or demonstrate. Part 2 will be devoted to discussion and brainstorming.

        Presented by Robin Ragan

        This is a pre-recorded workshop reformatted into on-demand.

        What is it about?

        Get familiar with the who, what, where, and why of a psychosocial evaluation from the context of nursing, social work, criminal and immigration law.

        Learning Goals:

        • Describe the purpose of a  Psychosocial Evaluation in various contexts

        • Anticipate the format and flow of a psychosocial evaluation

        • Describe challenges interpreting for these sessions

          The Importance of Biblical References for Translators and Interpreters

          Presented by: Dmitry Buzadzhi


          What is it about? The Bible is a seminal text in the Christian culture, whose language, concepts, and imagery are inextricably woven into the fabric of many modern languages, including English and Russian. Biblical quotes and allusions are frequent in a wide variety of non-religious texts ranging from fiction to journalism and political speeches. What makes this situation more challenging for translators and interpreters is that biblical references may work differently in different languages, and rendering one with its direct biblical counterpart in the target language is not always the best strategy. The speaker will talk about some of the most prominent biblical quotations in English and discuss related translation asymmetries and strategies in English-Russian translation and interpretation. Presented in English.

            NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents:

            Interpreting in palliative care

            Presented by Cindy Roat


            What is it about? 
            Palliative care seeks to optimize quality of life and relieve physical and emotional suffering through pain management, comfort care, and spiritual support. A 2010 survey of patients receiving palliative care in California found that 40% spoke limited English. Since palliative care depends on regular, clear communication between patients, providers, and families, interpreters are key members of any palliative care team.

            For interpreters, conversations involving palliative care, especially those at the end of life, can be among the most difficult to convey — not only linguistically and culturally, but personally.                                    

            This interactive seven-hour workshop is designed to prepare experienced medical interpreters to work in palliative care settings. It includes:

            • An Introduction to Palliative Care
            • Interpreting Skills Applied to Palliative Care
            • The Vocabulary of Palliative Care
            • Sight Translation in Palliative Care
            • The Impact of Emotion and Belief on Interpreting


            This multimedia, interactive training includes videos, PowerPoint presentations, and practice of interpreting and sight translation. Bilingual medical glossaries and practice activities are provided in Cantonese/traditional Chinese, Mandarin/simplified Chinese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.


            What is a Webshop?
            A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. 
            During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!

            When? Two sessions: Saturday, June 8th & 15th, 2024, 9am to 12:30pm, PST. You will need to attend the both sessions to receive CEUs. 

            Where? 
            Three days in advance, and again the day before the event, you will receive reminder emails with log-on instructions. Email or Text/Call 425-247-0684 (voice message only) if you don't receive a reminder. Skype Name: live:notisnet

              NOTIS’s Community Interpreters Division (CID) presents: 

              Consecutive Interpreting for Medicaid & Medicare Patients

              Presented by Lawrence Luo and Yvonne Simpson

              What is it about? 
              Almost 66 million people in the US (45% of the population) are enrolled in Medicare and almost 86 million in Medicaid. In WA State, over 2 million people are enrolled in Apple Health, WA DSHS's social health insurance plan. Medical interpreters frequently interpret in situations where Medicaid coverage is discussed, and in which healthcare personnel clarify which services are covered by Medicaid, explain copayments or deductibles, and communicate regarding treatment options that may affect their coverage. This webinar will provide medical and social service interpreters with an understanding of these two programs so they can accurately interpret for encounters related to these areas of coverage, both at DSHS appointments and for healthcare appointments covered by Medicaid or Medicare. Interpreters will be given opportunities to practice consecutive interpreting skills in scenarios discussing Medicaid and Medicare.

              Participants will receive handouts with scripts and will have opportunities to practice consecutive interpreting in breakout sessions. A copy of the presentation slides will be sent to participants after the workshop.

              This workshop will be recorded and shared with registrants.

                Pharmacy for Medical Interpreters 
                Presented by Jim Ramsey and Yvonne Simpson

                What is it about? 
                This four-hour training provides interpreters with an overview of pharmacy practice. Facilitated by a WA State licensed pharmacists and a certified medical interpreter, this webshop will teach participants about:

                • Pharmacy Training, education, areas of practice, and specializations
                • Basic pharmacology: drug types, classifications, prescribing, and therapy
                • Drug costs and insurance coverage
                • Pharmaceutical safety
                • Pharmacist-patient interactions

                Participants will receive handouts with key pharmacy terms and will have opportunities to practice consecutive interpreting and sight translation in breakout sessions.

                What is a “Webshop”?
                A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!

                When?
