Interpreting Diabetes

Play Video

This webinar is for anyone working as a translator or interpreter in the health setting. Important for both spoken and signed language interpreters. Interpreters with languages which have a limited stock of medical terms or signs.

Type 2 Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes are a growing concern for many people and interpreters are very likely to be asked to interpret for people with these conditions. People with Type 2 diabetes may have ‘compromised immunity’ and may have poor blood supply to different areas of the body, which may result in a number of possible complications including strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, leg ulcers and nerve damage.

This presentation will look at how diabetes may develop, what diagnostic studies may be done, and what instructions for managing the condition.
