Leukemia for Healthcare Interpreters

What is it? How and where is our blood made and why is this important for interpreting for leukemia care? What is leukemia and what is its place among other types of cancer? What is a stem cell transplant? These and many other questions will be answered at the Leukemia for Healthcare Interpreters Workshop. 

This 4-hour workshop will provide an introduction to the process by which blood is created and renewed; the nature of cancer in general; the nature of leukemia and its types; and symptoms, tests, and treatments related to leukemia including stem cell transplantation. Participants will also discuss challenges that interpreters face when interpreting in oncology settings, in particular during appointments related to leukemia, in addition to ways of overcoming them. Participants will be provided with handouts which will include a copy of the PowerPoint Presentation, a glossary, written practice, and role-playing exercises. The workshop will be interactive and allow participants to review the material through group activities and oral interpreting practice.
