Sample CASPer® Question: Family Member Acting as an Interpreter

Consider a video prompt around the following scenario.

Read the prompt.  Then answer the questions in 5 minutes!

PROMPT:  A family member is acting as an interpreter as you get consent for a procedure for your patient. You are suspicious that the interpreter is not fully translating what you are saying with respect to the risks involved.

QUESTIONS:

  1. How would you ensure that your patient is able to give an informed consent?
  2. What potential issues could arise if a family member is acting as a communicator?
  3. How would this situation proceed if instead a paid translator, who has no relation to the family, were used?

Good luck!
