Outpatient Oncology Clinic Using Video Remote Interpreting
June 20, 2021: The RMH Outpatient Oncology Clinic recently started using Video Remote Interpreting (VRI). Fraser Health Diversity Services sets up access to this on-demand service, which is interpreters on a video and/or audio platform. VRI is the interpretation modality of choice while COVID-19 safety protocols are in place. It is effective for Telehealth appointments and can be used in almost every circumstance where you would normally use an in-person interpreter. This platform has made a massive impact on access to patients as the team continues to navigate the pandemic both in-person and virtually.
Donations to the Foundation funded the stand for this portable translator.
