About the program: This introduction to the CHIA Standards was developed by the CHIA’s Education Committee. It gained greater importance as an effective tool for our profession on January 1, 2009 when SB853 became Section 1300.67.04 Language Assistance Programs of Title 28, California Code of Regulations, Department of Managed Health Care. The Code reads in part: “The Department will accept plan standards for interpreter ethics, conduct, and confidentiality that adopt and apply, in full, the standards promulgated by …CHIA or the National Council on Interpreting in Healthcare.”
Who should attend this session? Individuals who are new to the field, ASL interpreters new to healthcare interpreting, individuals responsible for ensuring that their interpreters have training in ethics and roles, professional interpreters preparing for national certification, and attendees who want to attend a session in which they will have ample opportunity to talk with other interpreters about ethical dilemmas.
