WEBSHOP: Understanding the Language of Neurology - Spanish Specific
Trainer: Joe Tein

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? Our nervous system is a brilliant, incredibly complex information network that carries out an immense variety of activities needed to keep us alive and functioning in the world. Every thought, feeling, action and bodily function is governed by our nervous system, which performs tasks that are far more elaborate than anything that humans have ever devised. With this tremendous complexity comes the potential for many things to go wrong … the nervous system can be impacted by many factors and suffer many malfunctions. As medical interpreters we need a basic understanding of the functions and components of this system, and its terminology; this will make us more effective and skillful in facilitating communication between patients and their medical providers. PowerPoint presentations, video demonstrations, and in-class exercises and practice will be used to teach the material.  

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to list at least 5 functions of the nervous system.
  • Participants will be able to name at least 5 anatomical components of the nervous system, and state the purpose or function of these components.
  • Participants will be able to translate a wide range of English terms relating to neurologic symptoms, disorders and treatment into their other working language. **[Note: this webshop will be Spanish-specific].

Topics covered:

  • Functions of the Nervous System
  • Anatomy
  • What Can Go Wrong?
  • Neurologic Symptoms

  • Neurological Disorders – Diagnoses

  • Diagnostic Tests
  • Treatment
  • Prevention
  • References and Resources
