How can we ensure that the Medical Interpreter (MI) feels more included in the clinical encounter? Often, the MI enters sensitive situations and may feel caught off guard, leading to a sense of disconnection from the encounter.
So, how should we provide them with context to better prepare for these situations? Moreover, are there specific challenges where the MI can be of assistance?
For instance, imagine a scenario involving a loving yet opinionated family member who prevents the patient from having a voice in their care?”
