Trauma-Informed Practices for Working with Interpreters in a Mental Health Setting is organized by Minnesota Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) and will be held on Jun 01, 2020 at Saint Mary’s University Brother Louis Hall, Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum Number of 2.75 CEUs. Workshop Description: Interpreting affects all aspects of access, whether it’s medical care, mental health services, education, the legal system or social services. Part of being effective in providing mental health support when working with non-English users means knowing how to work with interpreters. Many immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers have been impacted by war, torture, forced displacement and detention, so having a trauma-informed approach to interpreting is essential. In this workshop, you will gain a basic understanding of spoken language interpreting within a clinical context, such as modes of interpreting, interpreter roles and responsibilities, and best practices for trauma-informed communication. We will talk about language needs and resource realities within the context of Minnesota. This includes insufficient access to interpreters trained in interpretation and trained in trauma, and the challenges of working within small communities, where interpreters and clients my know each other or share common trauma histories. Part didactic and part experiential, this interactive training will allow you to become familiar with the most common “Do’s and Don’ts” of working with interpreters and to better understand the process. It will increase your confidence and competence for interpreted encounters and allow you to maximize your therapeutic interventions. Workshop Objectives: Describe best practices for working with an interpreter during a service encounter. Understand the interpreter’s role and responsibilities. Demonstrate cross-cultural and trauma- informed communication skills during an interpreted service encounter. Learn to anticipate, identify and address challenges related to interpretation. Recognize symptoms of vicarious trauma and its impact on interpreters and become familiar with simple tools to mitigate its effects.

American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) This activity is awarded up to 14 ANCC contact hours. About: Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the science of how an individual’s genetic background affects response to medications—and the field has left the research realm to emerge as an important tool for clinical care. Many academic and large private health systems have implemented PGx, and now smaller non-academic centers are beginning or considering implementation into routine practice. Consumer interest in PGx testing is likewise growing, fueled by availability of direct-to-consumer tests. Having a clear understanding of the current scientific evidence, emerging evidence, and knowledge of successful implementation pathways and examples are critical for your success in clinical pharmacogenomics. This two-day conference will provide PGx implementation education on a range of topics through lectures and small group breakout sessions. The first day will focus on general knowledge that supports drug-gene pairs commonly implemented in practice and data emerging for new drug-gene pairs that may be in the pipeline for implementation. The efforts by CPIC in authoring guidelines and a behind-the-scenes look at the CPIC scientific review process will be presented. Strategies to return PGx results to patients, how to use PGx information in the absence of a guideline or in the setting of a simultaneous drug-drug interaction will be covered. The second day will focus on PGx best practices and strategies for successful implementation. Four well-established programs will present their PGx programs and share the successes and pitfalls they encountered during the development of their programs. These topics will be presented: best practices in creating a multidisciplinary PGx team selecting a laboratory for testing how to use online tools such as PharmVar cost effectiveness genetic variants in minority populations how PGx improves quality of care and safety PGx clinical decision support Objectives: Following completion of this activity, the learner will be able to: • Describe the scientific evidence supporting use of drug-gene pairs currently implemented in clinical care. • Discuss the emerging evidence for new drug-gene pairs that may be implemented into practice in the future. • Describe the challenges and how to approach pharmacogenomic guided testing in populations where data are limited. • Describe pharmacogenomic implementation efforts in the U.S. • Assess how to select a pharmacogenomic testing panel and testing laboratory appropriate for your practice. • Assess how pharmacogenomic guided therapy could be applied in your practice setting. • Discuss the emerging data that supports cost effectiveness of pharmacogenomic testing and the challenges related to assessing cost savings. • Assess how to build clinical decision support for your clinical setting. • Discuss return of pharmacogenomic results to patients and communication to prescribers.
