The number of foreign nationals in Mie Prefecture is increasing and thus the issues in the medical field are also raising. Because there are differences both in idioms and healthcare, foreign patients are not confident when talk about issues related to medical institutions and, in addition to it, medical institutions face troubles related to foreign patients’ treatment.
In order to minimize such existing situations, a workshop focusing the practical learning of knowledge, techniques, ethics and others will be held, aiming to train interpreters in the medical field to help during communication between health professionals and foreign patients.
