Description: In this interview, Registered Dietician Debra Hook explains special considerations for interpreters to facilitate communication with patients when providing nutrition counseling in outpatient settings. Practical considerations, such as building rapport and assuring patient privacy, are examined in context. The role of the interpreter with regard to informing providers (as appropriate) about cultural nuances, such as foods and preparation methods, is addressed. Over 100 medical terms are introduced, including food categories, cooking methods, portion sizes, and healthcare team members; these terms are available for review using the corresponding online glossary. Ms. Hook holds a master’s degree and is a licensed Registered Dietician. She provides clinical services at various hospitals in Orange County, California and is the owner of Nutrition Solutions, for which she provides home-based services, focusing primarily on diabetic issues and children’s health.
