Webinar: Interpreting considerations for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

At times it can be challenging to interpret for patients with dementia - patients might be hard to comprehend or family members may want to communicate for them. For the interpreter, it is useful to consider how to manage these conversations and understand the concept of dementia as a whole. In this two-hour webinar we will learn about the causes, symptoms, and prognoses for dementia and Alzheimer’s; we will discuss practice scenarios to help prepare interpreters for complex encounters; and we will explore how bilingualism can help stave off symptoms of dementia as we age. Join us live or listen to the recording at a later date.

The Community Interpreters Division of NOTIS is excited to offer this training in webinar format. Registrants will receive the webinar address on the day of the webinar. They can participate with the webinar live and ask questions through the GoToWebinar chat feature. A recording of this webinar will be made available for 15 days after the training. Only attendees who register by the deadline and watch the entire webinar will receive a certificate of attendance (and corresponding continuing education units). Registrants who watch the webinar recording for credit will need to submit two attendance codes provided by the trainer during the webinar.
