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
