NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

WEBSHOP: Well Baby Visit for Healthcare Interpreters Presented by Sara Greenlee

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!

What is it about? The well-baby visit is a constant in the world of pediatrics. Regardless of viruses, lockdowns, or state regulations, they must happen, and they must be done in person. Unfortunately, well-baby visits are often scheduled and requested on very short notice. This workshop is designed to give interpreters a road map to quickly prepare for these visits when one is assigned. We will walk through the appointment from beginning to end and review concepts that will come up. A particular focus of the workshop will be words and phrases that are difficult to translate. During the session, we will work individually and in small groups to build a collective glossary that can be further personalized and used for quick review. Come learn what a Z-score is and how to face meconium head-on! Gain knowledge, share knowledge, and build confidence through collaboration.
