Gynecologic Care Interpreting
This 3 hour workshop is designed to help experienced interpreters with advanced skills expand their knowledge and language in the field of gynecology. This workshop aims to improve understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive system, gynecologic care, diagnoses, pathology and treatment in order to facilitate communication successfully. This workshop will also delve into professional ethics with medical interpretation and boundaries. Sexual healthcare appointments, including the patient’s first gynecological appointment, are some of the most challenging for interpreters as many situations may be vulnerable and sensitive to both interpreters and consumers. This workshop will illustrate ways to provide trauma-informed and gender affirming care for all sexual identities.
