Two of the most challenging standards of practice for healthcare interpreters are Advocacy and Role Boundaries. 
Numerous factors such as workplace setting, employment status, and whether the service is face-to-face or via
technology lead to questions and differing opinions about their application. The NCIHC is offering a four-hour
workshop organized by the Standards and Training Committee which will examine these two National Standards
of Practice and their application in the interpreted encounter. In addition to presentations there will be guided
scenarios, discussion, and an opportunity for participants to share their experiences.

Educational Objectives
At the end of this training, participants will:

  1. Have a greater understanding of the two Standards
  2. Have an increased ability to respond to unique and challenging interpreting events
  3. Be able to apply enhanced critical thinking skills in unique and challenging interpreting events
    1. Identify personal boundaries
    2. Articulate the potential for conflict in a given situation
  4. Be able to utilize decision-making strategies and tools offered in the training

Target audience
Interpreters, interpreter trainers, providers, and administrators of interpreting services.   NCIHC membership is
not required to attend this workshop.

This workshop has been accredited for 4 hrs by CEAP/CCHI and ATA.
