"Working with your Professional Interpreter"

 

In response to a TC-LHIN one-time funding opportunity, Access Alliance and HIN proposed a project aimed at educating two segments of the public about the role of professional interpreters in healthcare:

 

◦Limited English Proficient (LEP) clients and family members receiving care from Health Service Providers (HSPs)

◦Specific linguistic communities facing language barriers when accessing services

 

The result was this brochure, translated into 15 languages, answering such questions as:

  • What does an Interpreter Do?

  • Who is  a Professional Interpreter?

  • Do I need an interpreter?

  • How Do I Get an Interpreter?

  • How do I ask for help?

...and other questions related to best practices about language support
