This webinar is presented in Spanish with terminology in English and Spanish.
Culture and language go hand in hand like chips and salsa or PB&J. Therefore, during a medical encounter we have a Spanish-speaking patient (and Latino culture) and an English-speaking provider (and Anglo culture). These differences play an important role during a medical encounter and can cause misunderstandings and, in the worst case scenario, even death. As medical interpreters, we need to be aware of these differences in order to understand if, when, and how to intervene.
During this 2-hour *recorded* webinar, participants will become familiar with the main differences between the Anglo and Latino culture, how it affects the medical encounter, and understand if, when, and how to intervene.
