Sign Language Interpreting and Video Remote Interpreting in Medical Settings
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
2:00 P.M. to 3:30 P.M. EST
ADA Audio Conference Series
from the Great Lakes ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network
Communication is a critical element when interacting with medical professionals and providers whether it is in the doctor or dentist office or in a hospital setting. Often individuals who are deaf are denied effective communication based on a lack of understanding of the requirements or a concern about the cost of providing necessary services. Technology has expanded the options available for communicating with individuals who are deaf but it is not a situation of “one size fits all” and there are many variables that can go into whether or not one method of providing access to a sign language interpreter is more effective than another. Join this session for a discussion of these issues and to learn more about the resources that are available to assist an entity meet their effective communication obligations.
