Not just "getting by": factors influencing providers' choice of interpreters.
Hsieh E. J Gen Intern Med. 2014 Oct 23; [Epub ahead of print].
This qualitative study found that health care providers often do not use professional interpreters due to barriers including time constraints, limited access to interpreters, difficulty developing a patient–provider relationship through interpretation, and lack of confidence in interpreters' understanding about clinical complexities. A past AHRQ WebM&M case and commentary discusses an adverse event associated with lack of professional medical interpretation.
