Topic description: 

In May-June 2016, CCHI conducted the 2nd national Job Task Analysis (JTA) survey of the healthcare interpreter profession in order to validate and update the current definition of the profession and the content of the corresponding certification examinations. JTA is an opportunity to reflect on the professional tasks and responsibilities. The survey was completed by over 2,000 respondents. The presentation will highlight the composite “portrait” of the healthcare interpreter based on the demographic section of the survey. It will exemplify which job tasks and corresponding knowledge, skills and abilities are considered most critical to the profession as evident from the survey responses. The presentation will also discuss the implications of the JTA results for certification candidates as well as for healthcare interpreter trainers and curriculum developers.
