Best Practices for Interpreting in Healthcare Settings

The National Consortium of Interpreter Education Centers (NCIEC) is seeking to identify and promote best practices in the field of interpreting.  In healthcare settings, the CATIE Center, as part of the NCIEC, has been involved in helping to develop a number of documents that can help practitioners and educators to raise the level of practice.

The following resources are available to support interpreters in using best practices in their work.
