Ensuring Equitable Health Care Through Interpretation: From Concept to Practice
The need for interpreter services has never been greater. Good, clear, and accurate communication is essential in delivering exceptional care to any child or youth. When families enter a healthcare organization and do not speak one of the official languages, they are often at their most vulnerable state.

CHEO has recently expanded their interpreter services. The aim of this webinar is to share these new services and strategies.
