Diagnosing Healthcare Assignments: A Year of Medical Interpreting for Deaf People in Austria and Germany

February 26 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Webinar: Patricia Brueck will present her research which was published in Investigations in Healthcare Interpreting (Gallaudet Press 2014) and which she presented at the efsli Conference in Toulouse in October. The project analysed 142 healthcare assignments covered by five interpreters in Austria and Germany. It revealed recurrent features of medical encounters and revealed certain actions taken by interpreters which influence the satisfactory outcome of healthcare assignments. It also highlights a number of risks calling for reflective practitioners to practice circumspection.

As with all ASLI webinars, this event is limited to members and free of charge. To book your place and request an interpreter, if required, please email training@asli.org.uk  Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
