This video shows a simulated visit to an emergency department by a Deaf patient and allows interpreters the chance to practice their interpreting skills in emergent care. The video on the DVD offers both consecutive and simultaneous formats, as well as a version showing the actual interpretation generated during filming.

Online, the video is currently only shown in simultaneous format and with the actual interpretation. We are working on putting the consecutive video online.
