ASHA Convention 2017

I’m heading to the ASHA Convention in Los Angeles, and it’s looking to be a great convention.

I’ll presenting a poster this year, so if you’re up and around for an early Saturday morning, stop by and say hello!

Oriented x Cuatro: Patient-Centered Approaches to Working with Interpreters for Patients with Neurogenic Impairment

Limited-English-speaking patients with neurogenic impairments present a unique challenge for evaluation and treatment. In this session, we will learn to identify important areas of consideration for working with interpreters with this population. We will cover principles of evaluation, interviewing, treatment, and advocacy for language access.

  • Learner Outcome 1: Identify 4 areas of consideration (language, culture, setting, and experience) when working with patients who require an interpreter
  • Learner Outcome 2: Advocate for language access based on patient-centered needs by using critical thinking, clinical judgement, and knowledge of legal and ethical requirements
  • Learner Outcome 3: Apply principles of patient-centered care when working with interpreters for evaluation and treatment by use of appropriate evaluation techniques as well as use of ethnographic interviewing to guide treatment

It’s on Saturday, November 11 from 8-9:30. Session 9048 in the program, and board 340 in West Hall A of the convention center.
