Resource of the Week:

This Resource Targets Healthcare and “Teachback” Interpreters
 
Have you heard about teachback? It’s a “checking for understanding” technique. It  is now taught widely in medical schools to help make sure that patients understand what their doctors tell them.
 
As many interpreters can report, teachback is often even more important for patients who need interpreters. And the government of Australia with the Center for Culture, Ethnicity and Health has come out with a great tool that helps doctors and interpreters work together for effective teachback.
 
It’s a lovely resource.
