Learning Outcomes
- Review the role of culture and language in the health care setting
- Discuss the importance of working with professional interpreters
- Review how to get the most the consultation when working with an interpreter

Presented by Dr Aesen Thambiran - Director, Humanitarian Entrant Health Service and Ms Khin Myo Myint - Burmese Interpreting and Translating Services
