This module presents an introduction to healthcare interpreting. We will discuss why we refer to it as healthcare interpreting, rather than medical interpreting. The importance of accuracy, including the concept of trying to achieve pragmatic equivalence. Other topics include the triangle of communication and how to achieve this in different situations, including interpreting in a cath lab when someone is having a coronary angiography. We will also talk about advanced interaction managements and some scenarios where this may be required. Lastly we will talk about note-taking, what to note down. and the importance of understanding the terminology used, as well as the distinction between terminology as opposed to jargon and slang.
