    NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents:

    Presented by Jim Ramsey and Yvonne Simpson

    POSTPONED

    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:

    • Drug costs and insurance coverage
    • Pharmaceutical safety
    • Pharmacist-patient interactions

    What is a “Webshop”?

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!

            NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents:

            Interpreting for Forensic Evaluations
            Presented by Robin Ragan and Jordan Greenbaum


            Course Description:

            Forensic evaluations are used in many contexts including healthcare settings, legal criminal proceedings, and immigration hearings. A successful forensic evaluation often requires the interviewee to detail uncomfortable and upsetting information about their lives. In this workshop, participants will learn from a physician and a certified medical interpreter about the format, flow, and questions contained in a typical forensic evaluation, as well as best practices for conducting the interview via an interpreter. We will discuss pre-session preparation, tips for establishing rapport, and strategies for working with clients using a trauma-informed approach. The workshop will involve didactic teaching with extensive participant interaction and discussion in addition to a one-hour practice period in which attendees will work on three realistic scenarios the trainers have identified as particularly difficult. Finally, we will conclude with a discussion of additional training resources and ways to get involved in forensic evaluations moving forward.

            Learning Goals:

            • Describe the format and purpose of a Forensic Evaluation
            • Summarize the trauma-informed approach to interpretation during a forensic evaluation
            • Describe challenges for interpreters and providers
            • Name coping strategies for the interpreter to avoid secondary traumatic stress
            • Know how to get involved


            When? 
            Saturday, September 21, 2024, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. PST. Check-in begins five minutes before the starting time. Class from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. PST.

            NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

            Ethical Conundrums in Medical Interpreting

            Presented by Eliana Lobo

            What is it about? Many, if not most, of the ethical mistakes made by interpreters tends to come from a place of trying to be helpful, polite, or supportive. But the unintended consequence may be an ethical violation. Understanding role boundaries clearly, can help interpreters navigate the waters of customer service in a way that consistently upholds the Code of Ethics. 

            This webshop will explore all of the above. Scripts will be shared for positive, professional interaction, and breakout room sessions will offer the opportunity for attendees to practice.

            Attendees will be able to describe:

            • What a code of ethics is
            • Why a code of ethics exists for every health profession?
            • What the interpreter code of ethics covers

            Handouts: We will have a Venn diagram activity for attendees to compare the codes of ethics and then report back ethics held in common. Please print them prior to the workshop or have them ready in another device.


            When?  Saturday, September 28th, 2024, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00p.m. PST Check-in at 8:50 a.m. PLEASE CHECK IN AT 8:50 a.m. to sign in. Class from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

              NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

              Diabetes for Medical Interpreters

              Presented by Rosemary Cano and Yuliya Speroff

              Diabetes is a serious health condition that affects over 34 million Americans. Diabetes can have serious long-term effects on patients’ health and lead to severe complications. Management and treatment of diabetes may involve a team of medical professionals - from endocrinologist to mental health specialists, as well as the patient and their family. 

              This class is designed to help interpreters prepare for interpreting in encounters related to diabetes care - whether it’s an insulin injection education session or a dialysis discussion.  The class will cover: 

              • Definition of diabetes and related physiology 
              • Common types of diabetes 
              • How diabetes is diagnosed 
              • Common approaches to treating diabetes 
              • Complications of diabetes 
              • Challenges for interpreters 
              • Terminology and interpreting skills practice 

              The workshop will be recorded and made available to registrants for one month.

              An Interactive Webshop

              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 are expected; that’s what makes it fun!

              When? Saturday, October 12th, 2023, 9 a.m. - 1:30p.m. PST 
              Check-in at 8:50 p.m. Class from 9 am - 1:30 pm.

                NOTIS’s Translation Division presents:

                The Scholarly Translator: Technical Platypus or Literary Unicorn?
                Presented by Zakiya Hanafi


                What is it about?
                Scholarly texts occupy an ambiguous space between the literary and the technical. Their translation demands keen research skills to track down obscure quotations, detailed work on footnotes and bibliographies, terminological consistency, subject-matter expertise, and a specialized vocabulary. Yet the prose of these texts frequently demands the rich cultural and intellectual background and writerly talents that only a literary translator can provide. Scholarly translators also dwell in a different publishing environment with its own challenges and opportunities.

                Join us for this presentation by a professional translator who works on both technical and literary texts to discuss the special challenges and working conditions of this translation sub-species and define its taxonomy: platypus or unicorn?

                When?

                  NOTIS’s Community Interpreter Division (CID) presents: 


                  What Happened to You?

                  Healing After Vicarious Trauma
                  Presented by Marisa Rueda, Will, CHI


                  Course Description
                   
                  Vicarious trauma is a hazard of the job for healthcare workers and community service providers. Medical interpreters are not immune to this risk. However, unlike other healthcare and community service providers, interpreters often do not have a built-in support network they can turn to when they are suffering the effects of work-induced vicarious trauma.

                  Throughout this three-hour workshop, interpreters will learn how vicarious trauma may have affected them. They will also learn how to recognize their default physical and emotional responses to trauma. By recognizing their default trauma responses, interpreters can begin to understand how their bodies and minds are affected by traumatic events.

                  Furthermore, interpreters will learn how vicarious trauma can lead to positive and productive growth in the future. Interpreters will be able to understand which behaviors and actions are more likely to lead to healing and resilience. Likewise, they will be able to identify which coping behaviors are more likely to lead to addictive and harmful patterns in the long term.

                  Learning Objectives

                  1. Identify common initial and delayed responses to trauma and vicarious trauma.
                  2. Recognize symptoms associated with vicarious trauma.
                  3. Distinguish between healthy and unhealthy coping strategies.
                  4. Understand which behaviors and thoughts are more likely to lead to post-traumatic growth.
                  5. Share traumatic experiences with interpreting colleagues in a safe space.


                  Resources

                  Each learner will receive the following:

                  • Copy of the PowerPoint presentation
                  • Link to Post-Traumatic Growth Video
                  • Link to Post-Traumatic Growth After Vicarious Trauma Video

                  NOTIS’s Community Interpreters Division presents: 

                  Interpreting for Postpartum Care 
                  Presented by Marisa Rueda Will, CHI


                  Course Description
                  Obstetric care does not end after a baby is delivered. Interpreters are often called to interpret for new mothers in the postpartum unit to discuss lactation, feeding, newborn screening, newborn cares, and postpartum care. This education is comprehensive and may take hours. Like any specialty area, postpartum teaching has its own terminology. Additionally, you will hear about how this care is different for women who have experienced a pregnancy loss.  

                  During this session, you will discover the current methods and terminology utilized when interpreting for patients who have recently given birth. You will also hear about how these methods have changed over the last ten years and what this means for the goals of the encounter.  

                  In true Tica Interpreter Education fashion, you will also hear stories about women who willingly share their postpartum journeys. These stories will help you understand how each new mother faces their own joys and struggles. Postpartum care varies depending on the patient and their needs. These stories will give you concrete examples to make the information shared poignant and memorable. After attending this session, you will be prepared to work with a variety of postpartum patients.
