The Fifth Volume in the Interpreter Education Series
From Reference & Research Book News
Deaf Americans have identified healthcare as the most difficult setting in which to obtain a qualified interpreter, and this volume is part of an accelerated effort to increase the number and quality of healthcare interpreters. Approaching from the direction of health care, language, or education, contributors explore such topics as using authentic interactions in discourse training for healthcare interpreters, using demand control schema to structure experimental learning, online possibilities for healthcare interpreting education, educating interpreters as medical specialists with Deaf health professionals, contributions of the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care to professionalizing healthcare interpreting between spoken languages, and a European perspective.
Laurie Swabey is Professor of Interpreting, St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN.
Karen Malcolm, former Instructor/Coordinator, Department of Sign Language Interpreting, Douglas College, New Westminster, Canada, specializes in interpreting in medical and mental health settings.
