Kirsten Nelson Presents:

This workshop will introduce the theory and principles of hospice care. Hospice Care is end-oflife care, but also support for the family and loved ones. Our role as interpreter in this setting is very delicate and with proper training and preparation we will be best prepared to understand our role.

Kirsten is a legally licensed interpreter (AZ); holding both RID CI/CT and EIPA 4.5. She has worked as a professional interpreter since 1988 both in Washington State, as well as Arizona. She has enjoyed creating and presenting inservices and workshops state-wide for the past 13 years, inspiring and encouraging interpreters of all skill levels. She works full time as a freelance interpreter for local agencies, enjoying the variety of medical, legal and post-secondary. Kirsten has been a volunteer with Hospice of the Valley for 6 years, and is trained for adult care, respite, pediatric services and is currently involved with the 11th hour program.
