Participate in practical exercises to overcome the unique challenges when translating for the healthcare consumer—using the appropriate register, protecting patient rights, following government regulations. Learn to effectively translate the phrases, symbols, and units of measure found in examination notes, prescriptions, autopsy reports, and other medical records. Know the criteria used by major hospitals and medical research institutions when reviewing translations intended for their patient populations.
