St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, publishes a website called Interpreting in Healthcare Settings. This website offers useful information for interpreters who interpret in healthcare environments.
According to the website, the founders “…set out to lay the foundation for development of curriculum and instructional programs in the specialization areas of medical and mental health and substance abuse interpreting.
“The work began in 2006 as two separate initiatives led by the CATIE Center at St. Catherine University and the Regional Interpreter Education Center at Northeastern University, respectively. Each team engaged groups of experts and other stakeholders to identify the issues, review relevant curricula and literature on spoken and signed language interpreting, and draft domains and competencies upon which to build instructional programs. Drafts of the domains and competencies for each area were reviewed by Deaf and hearing interpreters.”
