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.


  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!
