    Video Remote Interpreting: Pros and Cons




    How VRI works in general, and specifically what are the principal benefits, complications and challenges of working with interpreters that are remote.  For example, in small towns, it may be ideal to have remote interpreters, as the local interpreters may know the patient and family. There are technical issues that do occur, and we will discuss how they can be resolved. The interpreter and the provider alike require training on how to use the VRI system, technical things like the mute button, as well as the use of 1st and 3rd person interpretation. Training of interpreters and providers for VRI use will be addressed as well within this session.
