Who is Calling the Shots in the Patient-Provider Communication
Presented by: Eric Candle
This presentation will address cultural competence versus cultural humility, ethical decision-making process, and successful mediation. The speaker will focus on the ten core cross-cultural issues, high-context cultures, culture-bound syndromes, and resisting seeing the patient in “deficit” terms. Seasoned and novice interpreters alike will find this training opportunity very helpful, and will be able to apply some of the new approaches in the medical interpreting field to advance an effective triadic communication in any language pair. This session will be followed by some Q&A and extra time to network and chat with fellow professionals.
