Upcoming NACCM CMC Conversation

Providing care when language is a barrier – serving limited English proficient and Deaf or hard of hearing individuals
Wednesday, August 21
12pm ET / 11am CT / 10am MT / 9am PT

Expert: Elena Langdon, MA, CT – MasterWord, Director of Training & Assessments

Moderated by: C. Byron Cordes,  MSW, LCSW, CASWCM, CMC – NACCM President

Working with a professional interpreter effectively eliminates language barriers, reduces cultural misunderstandings, and ensures compliance with federal mandates for language access. In this discussion, we will delve into the nuances of working with language interpreters. Topics will include the advantages of choosing a professional over a family member or friend, the role interpreters play in provider-patient interactions, and essential legal regulations.

Join us for a free-flowing one-hour conversation on legal and financial issues. No CEs are available for CMC Conversations.

This event is free for all CMCs, but registration is required. 
Stay tuned for how to register in the next issue of the eNewsletter!
