Communicating Through Healthcare Interpreters

A cost-effective, multimedia, online CME program that teaches MDs, PA, and ARPNs to communicate successfully with their limited English proficient patients.

Communicating Through Healthcare InterpretersDo your patients speak Spanish? Vietnamese? How about Chin or Dari or Ga? Linguistic diversity in the United States is growing, and so is the use of interpreters in healthcare settings. But working through an interpreter is a learned skill that’s not as easy as it may seem.

This online course uses interactive video lessons and a case-based learning methodology to teach providers how to:

  • Work effectively with trained an on-site interpreter
  • Guide an untrained interpreter
  • Maximize the accuracy and efficiency of a telephonic interpreter
  • Adapt techniques with an interpreter in a mental health setting

Developed by Cynthia E. Roat, MPH and Elizabeth Jacobs, MD, this course provides 2 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits for only $50. And in addition, it’s fun!
