from my experience in the last 10 years of interpreting interpreters are mostly used in areas of emergency medicine, primary care wellness visits, procedures whether outpatient or inpatient so this is where it is very important to learn vocabulary pertaining to consent, anesthesia, recovery and discharge instructions. If given the opportunity ask for a copy of a general consent form so that you can study it and become familiarized with the terminology as that is very important for legal purposes in a procedure. you want to make sure all being said is interpreted correctly without omissions or additions.
