A Genetic Counseling Cultural Competence Toolkit

Interpreters and Translators
    Cross Cultural Communication | Health Literacy | Language Access Resources | Multilingual Resources

TelephoneThis section of the toolkit provides genetic counselors with information and resources for working more effectively with interpreters and translators. These professionals have the difficult task of not only transmitting oral and/or written information, but also at times serving as cultural brokers to help client and counselor communicate effectively.
