Edited By: MiriamN.Shlesinger

Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 9
Description:

This volume - the first-ever collection of research on healthcare
interpreting - centers on three interrelated themes: cross-cultural
communication in healthcare settings, the interactional role of persons
serving as interpreters and the discourse patterns of interpreter-mediated
interaction. The individual chapters, by seven innovative researchers in
the area of community-based interpreting, represent a pioneering attempt to
look beyond stereotypical perceptions of interpreter-mediated interactions.
First published as a Special Issue of (7:2, 2005), this volume offers
insights into the impact of the interpreter - whether s/he is a trained
professional or a member of the patient's family - including ways in which
s/he may either facilitate or impair reliable communication between patient
and healthcare provider. The five articles cover a range of settings and
specialties, from general medicine to pediatrics, psychiatry and speech
therapy, using languages as diverse as Arabic, Dari, Farsi, Italian and
Spanish in combination with Danish, Dutch, English and French.
