They are highly skilled and experienced interpreters who have demonstrated their expertise in interpreting complex medical concepts and terminology. CSHIs are also familiar with the Australian healthcare system and the role of an interpreter in healthcare settings.

CSHIs play an important role in ensuring that people from all backgrounds have access to quality healthcare.
