These pages are designed to provide a more in-depth framework for working with the DVD Hurry Up & Wait. The study packet which is available for download contains ideas for working with the video from the DVD. As well, it has reflections on the sample interpretations from the DVD which gives vital insight in terms of more fully understanding the situation that you see on video. We hope that this will be helpful to you in preparing for interpreting in emergency departments.

A Note on the Video:

The video on the DVD provides it in a format that allows for consecutive interpreting – as it is presented with pauses after each turn in the interaction.  That is, the nurse speaks and then the video pauses.  Then the Deaf patient speaks and the video pauses.

On the video for the website, the interactions are presented as they were filmed, not in sections.  So, if you want to do the consecutive interpreting practice, you need to access a copy of the DVD.
