Choosing the Right Path: Advanced Ethical Decision-Making

This advanced-level interactive workshop explores up to six real-life hospital interpreted encounters. Each case study will present an ethical dilemma, conflicting ethical tenets, or the need to make a difficult decision. Is there always a clear path? Can two people make different decisions and both still be ethical? How does an interpreter deal with information that no one else is privy to? Attendees will participate in open discussion, but beware! A devil’s advocate lurks behind every decision!

This webinar is approved for 1 CCHI CE hour, 0.1 RID CE hour. Cost: $25.
