CEAP-CCHI APPROVED: 7 hours of CE (including Performance-Based)
The word cancer alone often provokes fear and uncertainty among many. Interpreting for Cancer Care is no different. The complexities of Cancer Care, with its multidisciplinary team, challenging topics of discussion, technical diagnostic testing and plethora of medications can be overwhelming. The aggressive treatment regimens and frequency of visits can take a physical and emotional toll on patients and the providers who work closely with them, thus compromising the role of an interpreter providing continuity of care. Furthermore, Cancer Care for LEP populations presents cultural, linguistic, and emotional challenges beyond the medical science and physiology that depend on the trained medical interpreter to facilitate communication and navigate these differences.
Are you adequately equipped to interpret for the ‘C’ word? Join the discussion with professionals in cancer care to expand your knowledge and sharpen your skills.
