November Diversity Dialogue - Interpreter Certification
October 23, 2014
Registration is open for the Institute’s next Diversity Dialogue, “Interpreter Certification: How It Contributes to Improving Quality of Care and Eliminating Disparities”, which will be held Wednesday, November 12.
Hosted by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters (CCHI), this webinar will discuss how certified interpreters support institutional commitment to quality care and help reduce health care disparities. Key to mitigating health disparities for patients with limited English proficiency (LEP) is effective provider-patient communication; health care interpreters are essential in managing difficult conversations across cultural and linguistic barriers. This webinar will emphasize interpreter certification as a standard qualification requirement for hiring or contracting interpreters.
