    Respect: 12.2

    As an interpreter, it is important to uphold standards of practice such as respect. In this particular instance, the provider continues to refer to the patient in the third person. One strategy I would utilize to address this, is by responding in the first person so that the provider is reminded that the primary relationship is between them in the patient. Another strategy I would utilize is limiting eye contact. By limiting this, the provider would hopefully be reminded to speak directly to the patient using the first person. Lastly, if the above strategies weren’t effective, I would consider asking the provider to step outside of the patient’s room to express the importance of communicating with the patient in the first person and the interpreter’s role of being a conduit of information, not necessarily the main subject of the interaction.
