This 1.5 hour workshop focuses on the role of the medical interpreter in end-of-life decisions. Some of the most challenging situations an interpreter faces are when a patient is dying, and the interpreter has to be the conduit of bad news to the family. Program Learning Objectives:
Medical interpreters participating in this training will be able to:
1. Become familiar with healthcare providers and their roles;
2. Identify family members and their roles within the family structure;
3. Describe the triadic meeting and its process;
4. Become familiar with the process of post-mortem organ donation.
