NOTIS Community Interpreting Division presents

Interpreting in Critical Care

When a patient’s life is in danger, interpreting encounters can become stressful, intimidating, and emotional. During this four-hour class, you will reinforce your knowledge of life-threatening conditions, their treatments, and end-of-life care to better navigate these encounters with ease and confidence. The class will include role-playing and interpreting practice with colleagues.
