Maternal-Fetal Medicine Vocabulary for Interpreters


DESCRIPTION:

The field of Maternal-Fetal Medicine is increasingly more important as 30% of pregnancies require these services. Therefore, interpreters are instrumental to help communicate complex information to patients whose primary language is not English. 


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Familiarize interpreters with common terms used in Obstetrics and Maternal-Fetal Medicine
  2. Understand the most common procedures used in Maternal-Fetal Medicine 
  3. Discuss the role of interpreters in this type of patient counseling sessions
