Healthcare interpreted sessions that involve medications may be challenging. Many interpreters report struggling to interpret these sessions because of complicated drug names and lack of knowledge about medications. Since being ‘fluent in the language of medications’ can take many years, what could interpreters do to overcome the challenge? This session will answer the question by identifying and providing effective solutions based on known interpreting skills and protocols in order to succeed when interpreting sessions that involve medications .

Learning Objectives:

1. To identify basic concepts regarding drugs and medications;

2. To leverage certain interpreting skills to interpret drug-related clinical sessions; and

3. To leverage certain interpreting protocols to interpret drug-related clinical sessions.
