Reception in the evening.

Post-AMM Workshop on Standards of Practice
Advocacy and Role Boundaries
Two of the most challenging standards of practice for healthcare interpreters are Advocacy and Role
Boundaries.  Numerous factors such as workplace setting, employment status, and whether the
service is face-to-face or via technology lead to questions and differing opinions about their
application.  The NCIHC is offering a four-hour workshop organized by the Standards and Training
Committee which will examine these two National Standards of Practice and their application in the
interpreted encounter.  In addition to presentations there will be guided scenarios, discussion, and
an opportunity for participants to share their experiences.
Please note:  This event is an in-person workshop in Denver, CO. This event is separate from the
AMM and requires separate registration.  
Cost:  $35 for NCIHC members / $45 for non-NCIHC members
Time:  1:00 - 5:00
