Live Online Course: Fighting Mental Decay

Words fly at you all day long, and it’s your active recall which keeps them from being twisted or lost as they ping-pong between patient and provider.

People, physical conditions, emotional reactions and personal connections can throw your memory for a loop at the most inconvenient moments during these hectic exchanges.

Without a good memory, you can’t do your job well. Period. And it will be your customers and patients who’ll suffer for it.

Knowing how your mind works is the first step on your journey to fighting mental decay. In this course, we’ll walk you through strategies and techniques to maintain your mental acuity through the distraction-filled and yet accuracy-dependent work of medical interpreting. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify your optimal interpreting environment conditions

  • Explain causes of memory decay
