NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

Ethical Conundrums in Medical Interpreting

Presented by Eliana Lobo

What is it about? Many, if not most, of the ethical mistakes made by interpreters tends to come from a place of trying to be helpful, polite, or supportive. But the unintended consequence may be an ethical violation. Understanding role boundaries clearly, can help interpreters navigate the waters of customer service in a way that consistently upholds the Code of Ethics. 

This webshop will explore all of the above. Scripts will be shared for positive, professional interaction, and breakout room sessions will offer the opportunity for attendees to practice.

Attendees will be able to describe:

  • What a code of ethics is
  • Why a code of ethics exists for every health profession?
  • What the interpreter code of ethics covers

Handouts: We will have a Venn diagram activity for attendees to compare the codes of ethics and then report back ethics held in common. Please print them prior to the workshop or have them ready in another device.
