The Intersection of Medical and Legal Interpreting with DI/HI Teams
Deb Martinez & Alicia McClurkanCentury IV
This workshop is intended for those who may be working, or plan to work, in the intersections of medical and legal. We will explore what settings are more likely intersectional, why Deaf Interpreters increase positive outcomes, and how to navigate the medical systems that intersect with legal interpreting. We will look at case studies, review common frameworks for medical interpreters, and work in small groups to explore best practices in medical and quasi-legal settings. This workshop will be conducted in ASL.
